In the U.S, the day after Thanksgiving might be known to holiday shoppers as "Black Friday," but this year Nintendo is offering consumers some colourful DS bundles.

On Nov. 28, Nintendo will release a duo of limited-edition Nintendo DS bundles, each pairing a Nintendo DS game title with a hand-held system in a bold new colour. The Mario Red Nintendo DS bundle includes a red system emblazoned with a familiar M for Mario, and a copy of New Super Mario Bros. The Ice Blue Nintendo DS comes with a custom carrying case and the popular Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day. Each bundle sells at an MSRP of $149.99.

The Mario Red and Ice Blue DS bundles won't be the only stocking stuffers this season. Nintendo also aims to brighten the season for core and new gamers with its selection of Nintendo DS games. Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia and Kirby Super Star Ultra are already in demand among casual gamers and younger players. The new Personal Trainer: Cooking apparently helps people become masterful chefs. And Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir offers some unique seek-and-solve puzzles.
