Nintendo 2DS Gets Price Cut In The US

One of Nintendo’s best values will be getting even better. On Aug. 30, the suggested retail price of the portable Nintendo 2DS system drops to $99.99, down from the current suggested retail price of $129.99. Even at the new suggested price, the system will still come packaged with the digital version of the acclaimed Mario Kart 7 game, making Nintendo 2DS an amazing value for shoppers.

People looking for a great game to play with their new system can also pick upLittle Battlers eXperience, which launches Aug. 21 for all Nintendo 3DSfamily systems, including Nintendo 2DS.

“At a suggested retail price of $99.99, Nintendo 2DS is an even more attractive introductory option for first-time gamers,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “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.”

Ever since it launched in October 2013, Nintendo 2DS has been the go-to system for newcomers to the world of quality Nintendo video games. The system plays nearly the entire library of Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, as well as most Nintendo DS games. Players with Internet access can compete online, or enjoy local multiplayer co-op experiences with other Nintendo 3DS family system owners. With no hinges, the durable construction of Nintendo 2DS makes it perfect for younger players.

Little Battlers eXperience lets players build, customize and battle robots made from more than 4,000 in-game parts that allows for more than 30,000 different LBX robots. The game is one part of the strong franchise, which also includes an animated TV show and robot model kits. Players can team up with characters that appear in the TV series, or find friends who also own the game and a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system to connect via local wireless to battle it out or team up against tough opponents in the Ranking Battle co-op mode.

Other games for all ages and skill levels launching for Nintendo 3DS before the end of the year include Animal Crossing: Happy Home DesignerChibi-Robo!

    1. I was just going to say that same thing. It seems like it was always $99.99.

      And speaking of that price, I’m sick of the way America prices stuff. Why can’t they automatically add the tax to the prices of things, so people knows exactly what they’ll cost? They do in the UK, so why not in North America? There’s been countless times where I was trying to figure out if I can afford something, but wasn’t sure how much things would cost after tax. Sometimes I wish I was European.

      1. Ok, not I understand now. The bundles (if you call “coming with a digital copy” a bundle) are normally around $129.99. So yes, for the bundles, this IS a cheaper price. But the 2DS systems alone (with no digital game) are already $99.99.

        1. yes but the mario kart bundle right now cost 129.99, so it will be 99 new price. so i guess they replacing the one without the game bc the one without the game cost 99.99 well it’s 95.97 at gamestop

      2. The 2DS with Mario Kart has been 99.00 at my local Walmart for months, I guess this is the “official” price drop now. By the way, and I kid you not, they have had the same exact two units all these months as well even at that price.

      3. Anyone else get the hunch that Nintendo is preparing a Direct or some kind of announcement very soon on either the NX or Zelda? I know they said “next year” but a lot has happened since they made those previous announcements, one being the unfortunate passing of Iwata. It has actually been over two months now since E3 and absolutely hardly any news of noteworthy since! Something’s up.

      6. Coming packaged with a digital copy of a game is like not coming packaged with ANYTHING. It’s physical or nothing for me. The only good thing about getting a digital code is that I can sell the stupid code on eBay etc. and buy the physical copy later.
