The holidays are coming sooner than you think, and if you haven't started doing all the relevant shopping for the gamers on your list, now may be a good time to start. Black Friday is back, once again, to bless us with a yearly selection of deals and low prices on some of the hottest electronics we've been salivating over all year. Some retailers have jumped the gun with their Black Friday deals, and we've compiled some of the best discounts out there currently on Nintendo's 3DS XL and 2DS XL as well as some of the cheapest prices on the best games you can find for the systems below. 

The Best Black Friday 2018 deals on Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS XL consoles and accessories

The Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS XL deals aren't as ubiquitous as they have been in recent years, since the Nintendo Switch has taken center stage, but there are still plenty of sales to snap up on older titles as well as a new bundle with Super Mario Maker, for those who haven't had a chance to give it a try just yet. You won't find a ton of bargains, but there's still a decent smattering out there this year. 


These Black Friday deals are currently live on Amazon's website right now, and can be purchased ahead of the event.


Target will carry the same Nintendo 2DS bundle that Walmart is this year for the same price, much like other retailers. It's important to note that it's the same price as the current Scarlet Red system bundle with New Super Mario Bros 2. pre-installed. You can snag it right now. 

Best Buy

Best Buy is offering the lowest prices on 3DS and 2DS hardware this season in comparison to Target and Walmart, as well as the same Nintendo 2DS Super Mario Maker Bundle as Walmart and Target. If you're looking to beef up your collection or buy a Nintendo classic for someone on your list, Best Buy's your destination to do it. 


The Nintendo 2DS Super Mario Maker Bundle is at several retailers this year, including Walmart. Walmart doesn't have a lot of deals to mention on either 3DS or 2DS, but the 2DS bundle on offer is still pretty lucrative. Currently, all of the Nintendo 3DS titles listed for sale on Black Friday are already available online for $17-18, and are normally $19.99, so keep that in mind when shopping this holiday season since they can be had on for a reasonable price already.


GameStop will have the same Super Mario Maker 2DS bundle deal as the other aforementioned retailers, as well as a selection of some discounted pre-owned 3DS games. 

To stay on top of the latest deals, keep checking back on this guide — we'll continue adding the latest Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS deals in the days leading up to Black Friday this November 23.
