No GravatarNintendo has announced that North America’s standard 2DS systems will be receiving a small makeover which will be available this November.

The new handhelds which normally have a black front with red or blue on the sides, will now host red or blue on the front and black on the sides.

According to sources inside Nintendo, this fiasco happened after Mario left the 2DS factory in the hands of Luigi for the day. Camera security is apparently strict in the building as they have footage of what began the whole gaffe, which you can see below. Though do not tell Mario it was Luigi that messed it up, as he is under the impression that it was done on purpose and approved it once he got back.

The one area that was not touched was price. The new colored Nintendo 2DS will still be priced at $79.99 and will have the Mario Kart 7 game pre-installed in specially marked boxes.

NINTENDO 2DS SYSTEM DROPS TO NEW LOW SUGGESTED PRICE OF $109.99

Nintendo Also Announces Two New Games for Young Gamers: 

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward and Disney Magical World 2

VANCOUVER, B.C., July 12, 2016 – The entry point to Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS games and franchises has never been more affordable. On July 15, Nintendo will lower the price of its kid-friendly portable Nintendo 2DS system to a suggested retail price of $109.99, a great saving from the previous suggested retail price of $129.99. Most systems even come pre-installed with one of two great games from the universally popular Mario Kart 7 racing game to the mischievous YO-KAI WATCH adventure game, making the new value price even more appealing for parents who are looking for an entry-level gaming system for their young gamers.

Plus, for those caught up in Pokémon Go fever, the Nintendo 2DS plays all the best Pokémon games from the last 20 years – from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition originals to the future-classics Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, out November 18th.

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, visit http://www.nintendo.com/en_CA/2ds.

“Nintendo 2DS is the best value available for a portable dedicated gaming system and is great for gaming on the go,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “The system has a library full of high-quality games for purchase, some in our Nintendo Selects category for less than $30 each, featuring Mario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Zelda.”

Kids can check out the latest game in the Kirby series, Kirby: Planet Robobot, 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 at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Disney Magical World2, 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 DisneyFrozen, 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 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

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, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Some of Nintendo’s other big hits in the Nintendo Selects category are also available for a suggested retail price of only $29.99 each. The Nintendo Selects line includes great games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Party: Island Tour and Yoshi’s New Island.

As always, Club Nintendo has some pretty sweet deals, but the one they’re offering for the month of March couldn’t get any better. Nintendo consumers that register a 2DS, 3DS, or 3DS XL system between March 1st and March 31st, and also register a select Nintendo 3DS title will get a Pokemon X/Y download code for free. Yep, you read that right, for free.

The qualifying games for the offer to be valid are as follows:

  • Yoshi’s New Island
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Mario 3D Land

  I’ve got to say, this is probably one of the best deal from Club Nintendo in a while. If I didn’t already have my hands on both a 3DS XL and Pokemon X, it would most definitely persuade me to go out and buy one AND one of the qualifying titles listed. What do you think of the March deal on Club Nintendo?
