Ignoring just how dumb it would be to announce a bundle so soon after launch, there is no source. And I haven't been able to find one. 
 
[Edit] Apparently because it's in french. Because a french gaming blog obviously wouldn't try to pull an April fools prank.

This would be the lamest fucking April Fools prank ever.  It's so tame and unspectacular.  Who would care?  I doubt it's a prank. 
 
It would be like if I wrote a blog about how I once overheard Michael Jordan saying he doesn't like hot dogs.  The controversy!

It's not on any of Nintendo's websites. If they just announced it wouldn't it be on there website first?

Well you it would seem on the evidence of your annoyance, lol, and those who recently bought a 3DS I imagine.  
 
It's nothing more than an April Fool's fake - the title of the the image is, "fake3DSzelda bundle".  
 
You should expect more of this on GB and elsewhere today, it's always the same story every year. I find It's only funny when the Japanese developers attempt it.

Aw man that would have been great but I don't think it's real at all.
 
Look at the box. It says 'The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time'. There's no The in Ocarina of Time.

It's just some mockup made by a guy from DeviantArt. Don't get your pants wet.

@Contro:  I'd appreciate it if you put "April Fools" in the title, this topic doesn't need 300 people not reading past the first post and arguing about whether it's real or not.

It is a cool looking 3DS though, I'd prefer it over the two current colours given the choice.  
 
Nintendo wouldn't release a bundle for two old Zelda games, but it would be nice if they did something like this for a new game, when it arrives.

The only thing that made me suspicious was that they were going to give away Link's Awakening for free. Giving things away (especially digital copies) just ain't Nintendo's style.

that boxart is rad though. 
 
I like the idea of the blue/gold that's a little different from the original color scheme associated with the game.
