Following our report earlier in the week that Nintendo would be slashing the price of the GBA SP ahead of this Christmas, Nintendo of Europe has today issued a few more details of the GBA SP limited editions which will go on sale on 19th November. With the stand-alone console retailing for £69.99, the new collector bundles will include an additional game and will cost £89.99.
SPOnG’s used to running news of cool limited-run Nintendo consoles, but they’re almost always destined for Japan only releases. So it is with no small pleasure that we can announce two new, highly desirable special consoles planned for European release. First up, there’s the Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap pack. This contains [cue drum roll] a copy of The Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap, plus a GBA SP crafted entirely out of gold (coloured plastic). Secondly, there’s the Mario vs Donkey Kong pack: with a console of dichotomous aesthetic value, that flirts with the notion of being simultaneously red on top whilst being silver on the bottom. It also comes with a copy of the aforementioned game.
It’s all very lovely, we’re sure you’ll agree. If Nintendo offer any more news regarding pre-Christmas bundles, read it here when it happens.
