Nintendo Drops The Price On 1st-Party 3DS Titles

Have a 3DS?  Been waiting for games like Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land to go on sale?  Well on April 22 all of your dreams will come true.  Nintendo will be dropping the price on five of the 3DS’ hottest games on April 22 from $39.99 to $29.99 on the Nintendo eShop and at retail.  Here are the five games:

  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

All five of the games are highly celebrated and have sold millions of copies.  Some of them are also quite old.  Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land have been out since 2011 so it is about time that they saw a price cut.

Other big 3DS titles like Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokemon X/Y will continue to retail at $39.99.

Remember, the price drop on the five games will not go into effect until April 22.
