REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The entry point to Nintendo
2DS
and Nintendo
3DS
games and franchises has never been more affordable. On May 20,
Nintendo will lower the price of its kid-friendly portable Nintendo 2DS
system to a suggested retail price of $79.99, a remarkable savings from
the previous suggested retail price of $99.99. Some systems even come
pre-installed with the universally popular Mario
Kart 7
racing game, making the new value price even more
appealing for parents who are looking for an entry-level gaming system
for their young gamers.


Nintendo 2DS launched in October 2013 and is part of the Nintendo 3DS
family of systems. The system comes with fun built-in entertainment
options and applications to take photos and videos, plus wireless access
to Nintendo eShop for those with Internet access. The unique design is
built to make it easy for smaller hands to hold. The system includes two
screens (including a touch screen) and plays Nintendo 3DS games, plus
nearly all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games in 2D. For details about

“Nintendo 2DS is the best value available for a portable dedicated
gaming system and is great for gaming on the go,” said Scott Moffitt,
Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
“The system has a library full of high-quality games for purchase, some
in our Nintendo Selects category for less than $20 each, featuring
Mario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Zelda.”

Kids can soon check out the new game in the Kirby series, Kirby:
Planet Robobot
, which launches June 10, as well as two new
kid-friendly games coming later this year: Style
Savvy: Fashion Forward
and Disney Magical World 2.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, the third game in the Style Savvy
series, gives players a sense of accomplishment by putting them in
charge of one of five exciting professions. Players can immerse
themselves in a world of fashion by owning a boutique, designing
clothes, styling hair, applying makeup or becoming a model. When players
make themselves look good, customers who visit their boutiques might
start adopting the player’s style. The game includes over 19,000
different articles of clothing, items and accessories to choose from.
Players can also learn real-world fashion tips from the Fashion 101
guide. To access Nintendo character-themed clothing and accessories in
the game, players can tap select amiibo
figures to a Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system using
the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory to trigger an event. Once
the event is completed, players can get the special items. The amiibo
and Reader/Writer accessory are sold separately. The New Nintendo 3DS
and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems feature a built-in NFC reader for
amiibo. Style Savvy: Fashion Forward launches Aug. 19.

Disney Magical World 2, the follow up to the popular
franchise, lets players enjoy a variety of new adventures in six
Disney-themed worlds, such as exploring the world of Disney Frozen,
dancing with Disney princesses or soaring through special Magical Dream
events. Players will encounter and interact with well-known characters
like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Ariel, Donald
Duck and Daisy Duck. The game launches Oct. 14.

In the meantime, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has a library of
great exclusive games for every type of player, including New
Super Mario Bros. 2

Crossing: New Leaf

Alpha Sapphire

Selects
