2DS New Super Mario Bros. 2 Bundle Coming in August

Launching August 25 for $80 USD.

Nintendo’s New 2DS XL may have just released this week, but it appears the company won’t be abandoning the original 2DS model anytime soon.

In a post on Twitter, Nintendo of America has revealed a new 2DS bundle. The handheld features a white-and-red color scheme comes with New Super Mario Bros. 2 pre-installed.

The bundle will be released on August 25 for $80 USD. The console can play the entirety of the DS and 3DS libraries, minus any titles requiring the more powerful “New” line of handhelds (sorry, Xenoblade Chronicles and Fire Emblem Warriors).

We called the 2DS a “good piece of hardware at a bargain price,” in our initial assessment of the console, and its library has only gotten better since then. If you are curious about the 3DS but unsure which iteration is right for you, be sure to check out IGN’s review of the New 2DS XL as well.
