Best Black Friday Nintendo 3DS deals 2017

Black Friday has been the biggest shopping day of the year for a while now, and 2017 shows no sign of being any different. There are discounts on just about everything, but gaming tends to be one of the biggest sectors – and with the 3DS the dominant handheld console, there should be plenty of good deals around. It’s a bit confusing but the 3DS family of handheld consoles, includes the 2DS as well so here you’ll find deals for both.

Best Nintendo 3DS deals right now

We won’t know all the best Black Friday[1] discounts until the actual day, but we’ve rounded up a few available now and will add more as we find them so stay tuned.

Head to our deals site[2] to find more of our curated picks across loads of categories.

What to expect

We’re not sure how big the discounts on the 3DS consoles will be, especially since the New 2DS XL hasn’t been out long and is already reasonable at just GBP129. The New 3DS XL is a bit more expensive at GBP179 so you might be able to pick one up for not much more than the RRP of the 2DS version.

What’s likely is that the best deals will come on bundles where the console will also come with things like games and accessories.

Where to find Black Friday Nintendo 3DS deals

Major game retailers will be doing big discounts for Black Friday, along with just about anywhere else that sells games and consoles. Amazon has already started deals, so keep an eye on the site this week for the first bargains.

Retailers such as Currys[3] and Argos[4] have also launched sales early. If you’ve found that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals[5], which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we’d recommend signing up for Amazon’s 30 day free trial[6] of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you’ll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.
