Mario Kart fans are getting a limited-edition bundle to help keep their
engines revving through the holidays. On Dec. 2, Nintendo is offering a
Blue/Black Nintendo 3DS XL with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed on the system for a
suggested retail price of $199.99. If purchased separately, the system and the
game would be offered at suggested retail prices of $199.99 and $39.99

The portable Nintendo 3DS XL system offers two screens that are 90 percent
larger than the original Nintendo 3DS and let owners see even more amazing 3D
details. Owners can watch their karts zoom across the track in 3D without the
need for special glasses. The system also includes the Nintendo eShop, a
one-stop shop for downloadable new games, Virtual Console games, free game
demos and full downloadable versions of retail games. Users can also enjoy
augmented-reality features and Nintendo Video, a channel filled with free
one-of-a-kind 3D videos.

Mario Kart 7 lets karts race through the air and under the sea for the first
time. On big jumps, karts deploy a wing to help them glide over the track.
When karts dive underwater, a propeller pops out to help the kart cruise
across the sea floor. Players can customize their vehicles further to enhance
their driving style or play to certain types of terrain and even race as their
own Mii characters. Multiple courses challenge players to race for the
checkered flag.
