Nintendo is releasing two New Nintendo 3DS models this month for only $100 bucks.
Speaking of cheaper 3DS models, how about a cheaper Wii U model Nintendo
I don't think they'll release something new but soon we'll see some big discounts. Not sure if at this point it's worth doing big bundles for the Holidays since all hype is on Switch.
They also have the NES Mini coming up, don't forget about that. Talk about an easy way to make a shitload of money.... :P
Yet we aren't even getting any info on Switch this holiday season, so it's even more ridiculous for Nintendo to not have any sort of holiday deals for Wii U.
It definitely seems like Nintendo gave up on this Holiday season console-wise. As for 3DS, they have Pokemon and Yokai Watch 2 I guess haha. And Mario Party: Star Rush.. *cough* :p I think a Harvest Moon game came out today too?
'Speaking of cheaper 3DS models' Yes 3DS, not Wii U. I know you're a bit thick, but it wasn't talking about the Wii U.
I know but that doesn't just make the issue nonexistent. Try to keep up
The faceplates look nice as well. What I like about the New 3DS is the fact that when I get bored of the design I can always swap it out for another
I really, really wish the 3DS XL had faceplates.
That's one of the reasons why I didn't buy it. For me the size of the New 3DSs screen is good enough for me. I love the fact that when my faceplates get scratched up or I get bored of then, I can just replace them.
I wish 3DS games would drop in price more often.
Definitely. Sadly, it seems like Nintendo usually likes keeping their game prices up for a long time.
Nintendo could release more Nintendo selects.
def buying this
You should probably save the $100 for the Switch when it drops in March if you can wait.
i thought this was the XL so i am going to hold off. Cannot wait for thr switch
If someone wasn't an early adopter of the 3ds, then it might be safe to assume they wouldn't for the switch either. There aren't exactly any confirmed games for the switch launch yet, but plenty of 3ds games to play. Just ready the next comment, guess I was wrong
Are these the 3ds xl models?
Nope, only the small/regular ones ;)
Thanks I'll still buy one but that sucks.
The 3DS is SO outdated. I don't even think $100 is cheap enough.
I guess that's true, but compared to what? Home consoles, smartphones? There really isn't anything like the 3ds and there are tons of exclusive games not available anywhere else.
***New*** Nintendo 3DS!!!!! Goddam Nintendo marketing over the last 10 years has been shameless.
Right? Definitely the most confusing ones have been the 2DS versions. I'd hate to work at a game/electronics store and have to convince customers that it does in fact play 3DS games... but not in 3D lol
They could have called it a "No 3DS". Oh wait that's even more confusing..... I do love my New 3DS but I have to admit that Nintendo screwed up with the naming. If they just called it the 3DS Pro or 3DS S it would be alot less confusing since we already are used to those monikers. 3DS Pro 3DS Pro XL The 2DS doesn't have a solution though.
I read the article, however It doesn't say if it's the 3DS XL model or not. I know it says new 3DS but I need to know so I can plan accordingly.
No XL branding on the packaging shown would insinuate no, it's not a XL model.
Edited! Thanks for bringing this up; the deal is for the regular New 3DS versions, not the XL models.
I love my New 3DS XL. Too bad this isn't the XL version but its still a great handheld for a very cheap price.
Though, is it only for the black friday sale? A previous article said its for black friday, and the tweet in this one mentions black friday, but doesnt confirm that this is a new model with a permanent 100$\€ price.
The tweet itself lends to the idea that this is for Black Friday only and will have limited stock
It is NOT a Black Friday only deal! Most sources confirm that moving forward, these models will still be available for $99. : )
I hope thats the case. A nice affordable handheld unit would be cool, and ever since GBA Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga I have been longing to get my hands on the DS/3DS iterations.
If anyone doesn't have a 3ds that wants one, this is a steal.
Might actually jump on this price. Is super smash bros fun online on the 3ds thats a big selling point for me can someone please let me know. Also what other games would you recommend for it besides smash bros mario kart and pokemon
Mario and Luigi series. They are lighthearted turn based RPG games. Havent played any of the newer ones, but the first one in the series (on Gameboy Advance) was great.
