Most retailers have initiated their core sales for Black Friday 2013… despite the fact that today’s actually Thursday.

Amazon’s current offers – like Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for $15 – can be found here. Also be sure to check out the lightning deals page here, as titles such as Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be going on sale later today.

All GameStop sales are located here. There are quite a few highlights, such as Xenoblade and Metroid Prime Trilogy for $33.59 (use the promo code CAG16 on these two). You can also grab LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for $30 and Rayman Legends for just $25.

Nintendo has finally gotten things sorted with Target’s Zelda 3DS XL bundle sale. It’ll be available for $50 off starting tomorrow, making the package $170 rather than $150. You’ll still be saving $50, which is nothing to snuff at. The discount lasts through November 30 (and while supplies last).


Nintendo World Store will be offering a few Black Friday 2013 deals. You can find all of the store’s deals above.


Update 2: Target can’t seem to get its facts straight! The retailer now says the price will be honored after all.

Update: Turns out Nintendo’s information was incorrect. Target says the Zelda 3DS XL bundle won’t be offered for $150, but all other standard models will be.


Target is giving consumers all of the reasons in the world to pick up the Zelda 3DS XL bundle on Black Friday. Starting on November 28, it’ll be available for just $149.99. Most retailers have been selling it for $220 out of the gate. The deal ends on November 30.


Atlus will be discounting the price of Shin Megami Tensei IV for just a few days. Between November 28 and December 2, you’ll be able to purchase the 3DS RPG for $29.99. The game was originally priced at $50. Note that DLC will be on sale as well, with all items being marked down under $2.
