The Nintendo 2DS, the handheld in the Nintendo hardware library meant as an entry point for gamers and kids alike, is now quite a bit cheaper.
Nintendo has dropped the price of the 2DS by $30. The system now sells for $99 with a copy of Mario Kart 7 bundled in.
The press release touts the 2DS as a great starting point for the 3DS and DS software collection. You can get the hardware for relatively cheap now alongside one of the best games on the 3DS, Mario Kart 7.
Here’s Nintendo of America’s Executive VP of Sales & Marketing, Scott Moffitt.
“At a suggested retail price of $99.99, Nintendo 2DS is an even more attractive introductory option for first-time gamers…
…The new lower-priced hardware combined with the strong lineup 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.”
$99 for a handheld is pretty cheap. Of course, the 3D doesn’t work and there’s no clamshell design. The 2DS is truly meant as an entry point rather than a high-end piece of hardware.
