The 3DS is now $30 cheaper in North America.
Nintendo has cut the price of the handheld to $99.99, which equates to around 63.50 in real, Queen’s money. That price includes a copy of Mario Kart 7.
In the UK Nintendo doesn’t officially set RRPs, but generally you’re looking at around 95-100 for a standalone unit or 105-110 for a bundle including a game.
The new price comes into effect in the US tomorrow (August 21st).
The 2DS is effectively a 3DS in all but name but with two big differences – it doesn’t have a clamshell folding design and it doesn’t offer 3D functionality.
At a suggested retail price of $99.99, Nintendo 2DS is an even more attractive introductory option for first-time gamers,” Nintendo of America’s VP of sales and marketing Scott Moffitt said.
The new lower-priced hardware combined with the strong line-up of new games launching this year and arguably the best library of games in this generation makes it a great time to be a Nintendo fan.”
