If you were hoping to pick up a new Nintendo console, or find some deals on bundles and games, Black Friday is your ticket to scoring big. To save you some time and planning, we've put together a guide to the best in-store bargains.
Make sure to check your local stores' advertisements ahead of time though, as availability and prices may vary.
Zelda Nintendo 3DS XL Bundle - $149.99
This 3DS XL bundle comes with a limited edition gold design and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Betwen Worlds pre-loaded. At $149, it's already a bargain; you're basically getting $50 off of a 3DS XL with a free copy of Zelda.
Where? Target has this deal, although if you miss out (they'll probably go fast), GameStop is stocking an identical bundle, but for $220.
3DS Luigi's Mansion Bundle - $139.99
If Zelda or XL's aren't your bag, you can also grab a regular 3DS bundled with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for about $140. It only comes in one color, but it's still a good deal.
Where? Head to Fry's for this deal, it will go on sale at 3PM. If they run out, Best Buy has one for $149.99.
2DS - $99.99

Where? Walmart is stocking this one, in Red and Blue.
Wii U - $259.99 - $319.97
