Nintendo of America have announced that two new colors for Nintendo 2DS will release in North America this holiday season. While the old 2DS featured a black front with red or blue on the sides, these new Nintendo 2DS will have red or blue on the front facing panel, and have black on the sides. These new 2DS will retail for the affordable price of $79.99 and comes packed with a digital copy of Mario Kart 7.
The ‘Year of Luigi’ may be over, but Luigi is still causing mischief in the world of Nintendo. It seems that Luigi has caused a minor hiccup in the manufacturing process of the 2DS, and this has caused them to change color. You can watch footage of the “incident” here.
These new 2DS will be available in November at retailers nationwide. With Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon set to release in November as well, these 2DS bundles make for an affordable holiday gift, and a great introductory system for those interested in the new Pokémon games.
New Look (Not At All Caused By Luigi Accidentally Entering the Wrong Manufacturing Code):
Red or blue on the front, black on the sides.
This new color swap will be remembered alongside other such innovations as jelly and peanut butter, or roll and rock. Even Mario approved and decided that the new look will start replacing the old one, so everyone should see the color-swapped Nintendo 2DS systems appear in stores this November.
Despite all these changes, the price stays the same! You can still pick up the Nintendo 2DS system at a suggested retail price of only $79.99, with the Mario Kart 7 game pre-installed in specially marked packages. At a price like that, you could even pick up one for every young gamer in the family!
