25th Anniversary Mario Red Wii And DSi XL Bundles Announced For U.S.


It’s been a bit of a wait, but Nintendo of America have finally announced the Mario Red Wii and DSi XL bundles for North America with some slight differences.


Mario Red Wii Bundle ($199.99)

Mario Red Wii

While the European version of this bundle also comes pre-installed with a Virtual Console copy of the original Donkey Kong, the U.S. version doesn’t. It only contains Wii Sports and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.


Red DSi XL Bundle ($179.99)

Red DSi XL

The North American red DSi XL bundle features a bigger difference: instead of coming with New Super Mario Bros. for the DS like the European package, the U.S. bundle comes with Mario Kart DS. It also contains DSiWare games Brain Age Express: Math, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, and a Photo Clock app.


Both bundles are scheduled for launch on November 7th. Additionally, Nintendo of America also officially confirmed the Flingsmash bundle with a Wii Remote Plus (a Wii Remote with the MotionPlus add-on built into it) for $49.99.
