With another holiday season fast approaching with a plethora of great looking titles begging for your money, Nintendo has also added a few more hardware options to try to make a new 3DS all the more appealing to both new comers and hardcore collectors. Not surprisingly, some will be bundled with a couple of this year’s most biggest games.

Probably the biggest title released in Japan this year is Monster Hunter 4, and even though it already has two other console bundles to its name, a third bundle will be released featuring a blue, regular 3DS with a white monster design on the front, along with a 4GB SD card and a downloadable copy of Monster Hunter 4. The bundle will be released on November 7 for 19,800 yen and should be a pretty good option for the few people in Japan who haven’t picked up the game yet or for the hardcore fans who need another MH4 themed 3DS.

As we reported yesterday, Europe will also be getting two special 3DS XL models before the year is out. First is the Luigi Special Edition model that has actually already been released in Japan, but will be getting a European release on November 1 for £179.99, but only online. The other special edition will be celebrating The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds by featuring a gold top half, a black bottom half, and Triforces on both halves; the design is obviously a reference to the two worlds of the game, bright Hyrule and the darker Lorule. A download code for the actual game will also be included in the bundle, which will retail for £199.99 and will see the light of day on November 22.

Hopefully North America will also get some special edition love this holiday season.
