Mario Bundled with Special Edition Consoles

North America won't be left out of the Mario anniversary love as Nintendo has revealed new Wii and DSi XL bundles to release on November 7, both of which will come with red-colored systems and popular Mario titles.

The Wii will have a third color added to its North American palette, as a limited edition red system will become available on November 7 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros. The system will include a red console, Nunchuk, copies of New Super Mario Bros. and Wii Sports, as well as the new Wii Remote Plus (the updated Wii Remote that includes Wii MotionPlus support). The bundle will sell for $200.

A new Nintendo DSi XL will be available that day too to celebrate Mario's anniversary. The $180 limited edition bundle will include a red system decorated with anniversary-themed graphics, three pre-installed DSiWare games, and a copy of Mario Kart DS. (Also see "The True Face of Mario.")

These bundles aren't the only new Nintendo products hitting store shelves that day, as the Wii Remote Plus will replace the Wii Remote on store shelves, retailing for the same $40 price tag as the original accessory. The upgraded controller will also be available with a new game for only $10 more, as the Wii MotionPlus-enabled Flingsmash will release that day for $50.

Are any of the products releasing on November 7 catching your eye? Which (if any) are you planning on purchasing?
