Together these five games have sold more than 9 million combined physical and digital units in the United States alone, and represent some of the most fun game experiences available today. The five games are must-haves for anyone who owns a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system, and their new price represents an even better value for consumers.

In order, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario Bros. 2 represent the top three best-selling Nintendo 3DS games of all time in the United States – each one has sold more than 2.15 million physical and digital units in the U.S. alone. All five of the newly discounted games star classic Nintendo characters and franchises, and their strong sales over time demonstrate the longevity of Nintendo’s games. The games make great gifts, engaging entertainment for families and other spring break travelers, or just a way to introduce kids to the fun of video games.


  1. yep nintendo with thee terrible fixed prices, tht 30% of the reason i will not buying nintendo games for wii u and 3ds.

    1. $29.99 sounds pretty good to me, that’d equate to the games being about £19.99 here in the UK which is a steal!

      For some first party 3DS games we’ve had them marked up at £34.99, which is almost $60. That puts into context how great a deal this is!

    2. Only 30 percent? lol What about the other 70 percent saying you will buy em?

      You’re such a moron. Be glad they dropped the prices at all. Mario Kart 7, New Mario Bros. 2 & Mario 3D Land for $30 dropped from $40? That’s a heck of a price drop.

      You’re just a mad little reject child because your parents didn’t get you a shittier last gen console with ripoff Live service which every other console and PC’s online play is free, fucking failed gimmick that is Kinect and the Red Ring and other hardware issues.

      1. Exactly. You’re a confused dumbass who can’t type sentences correctly and end up sounding like a hypocrite both hating and loving Nintendo. Make up your damn mind.

    1. Correction : Lord Satoru and High Commander Sakurai…

      We do not wish to offend our lordships…

    1. They are the typical “Internet tough guy”. Hiding behind a username, they throw insults at other people and at companies because it makes them feel special and big. These are people who, in real life would back down faster than a toddler being approached by a big dog. They are all talk.

      1. Perfect example of these “tough guy” imposing motherfuckers: A confused tawt named “sasorideidaraobi”

  2. sigh, most companies lower the price after half a year nintendo, get with it, New Super Mario Bros. U is NOT worth $60 with DLC on top

    1. Software is worth as much as the consumer wants to pay for it. If the game is selling at 59.99 then why lower the price?

    2. Its takes less or a whole year for COD to drop its price because its overrated sales are too soon and those rate of sales drop quickly which partially explains why they make COD games every year. And others that do drop prices faster is because the rate of sale drop too.

      Nintendo’s game on the other hand have been selling well considerably for at least 2-3 year, maybe more if its selling extremely well before noticing any rate of sale drops so they drop prices to keep the sales up. Remember Wii games like Brawl, Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess and Mario Kart Wii (6)? Those games took years to drop its pricing because it was hugely successful in a long run. Why Nintendo games take so long to drop prices compare to the others? Because unlike Nintendo, those games kinda suck after a while because few to none aren’t even close to Nintendo’s caliber of lasting appeal.

      1. Ok fanboy, other games drop because they suck and N games don’t because they’re the best. Good logic

        1. Okay asstard. I said game sales depends on timing of price drops. If sales rate dips in any marketplace, then price drops or sales are imminent.

          Learn how to research the means “sales figures” and fucking read clear English hillbilly.

      2. You’re seriously an idiot .
        Super Mario bros with no online play and no stage fun enough to play more than twice, does not have more lasting appeal than a good online shooter like call of duty.

        Twilight princess was worth one okay through and also on GCN.

        Ugh I hate being a nintendo fan knowing that 90% of them are idiots like you thinking brawl with terrible online play and tripping has lasting appeal…

        1. OMG. Don’t ever say COD is a “good online shooter” because everyone knows that reputation was thrown out of the window and the series went downhill after COD4.

          I never said Brawl with tripping and shitty online was great because I hated the game for that dame reason. Melee is clearly the best game and that much I know and agree for sure. I was talking about the sales figures that depends the timing of price cuts. You too learn how to read and understand English. If you’re a foreigner, then that’s a bit understandable. But you’re still a fool to jump the gun like that.

  3. No deal. I already own all of those. If they want me to buy it again, I want it half off in the eShop.

  4. Meh, only one I didn’t own was DKCR3D, but that’s because I already own it on the Wii.

    1. Well if you want, trade in or resale the Wii version for the 3DS for that exclusive World 9 content.

  5. I like my Club Nintendo coins so yeah a used nintendo game around the same price isn’t going to get me on that road unless it truly is a steal.

  6. Dang it! I was hoping for a price cut for OoT3D or SF643D. I guess I’ll have to keep playing them on N64.
