Gold, Rose DS Bundles Launching on Black Friday

Nintendo has announced two new DS Lite hardware and software bundles, to launch this Friday, November 23 in North America. One bundle features a gold, Triforce-emblazoned DS Lite packaged with Nintendo's own The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, while the other includes a metallic rose DS Lite stamped with a paw print and bundled with the "Best Friends" version of puppy sim Nintendogs. nope

"Our new bundles will be collector's items for current gamers while offering an attractive way for people new to video games to play with style," said nearly-departed marketing VP George Harrison in a dubious statement.

Though Nintendo did not disclose suggested retail price points for the bundles, online retailers list the items at $149.99 apiece--$15 less than the current retail price for the included components of each.
