Earlier today, Nintendo made a couple of announcement regarding the Nintendo 3DS for North America. First, some good news for players looking for a cheap 3DS model: from May 20th, the Nintendo 2DS will only cost $79.99. That’s 20$ cheaper than before (following the price drop to $99.99, a few months ago). And of course, some of the bundles still include Mario Kart 7 (pre-installed), making this deal even sweeter.
Here’s a TV Commercial for the new price:
Nintendo also announced a couple of games for North America:
- Style Savvy: Fashion Forward (known as Nintendo Presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward in Europe, and Girls Mode 3: KiraKira Code in Japan), which will be released on August 19th. It features over 19,000 different articles of clothing, items and accessories, and is compatible with amiibo (which trigger special events, to unlock special clothing items based on the character scanned);
- Disney Magical World 2, which features 6 Diney-themed world (including one from Frozen), a dancing mode, Magical Dream Events, and more. It will be released on October 14th, and unfortunately, we don’t know if a European release is planned or not.
