    Yeah I agree. They should have tossed in majora's mask too to sweeten the deal.

    A new limited-edition release of old, outdated hardware? What the fuck?

    Maybe they had some remaining parts for the 2DS and figured this was a good way to get rid of them with only needing to color some plastic. It doesn't even have any printing it's just a different color.

    What. the. fuck. But okay, let's look at it closer...

    Reggie said in a recent interview that Nintendo is gearing the 3DS line towards entry-level gamers (mostly kids), for those who want their own console. So basically, 3DS for the kiddos, Switch for the adults. Since they're going for entry-level consumers, it makes sense to keep selling the original 2DS. Only $80 and you get access to a HUGE catalog of DS and 3DS titles. Now why Ocarina of Time? Well, it's a first party game and very old, so I'm guessing it's cheaper for them to absorb that cost and continue selling the 2DS at $80. When you look at it in that light, this decision makes a lot more sense.

    Hey, it'd be useful for some shacking.

    Also, I can see why they want to support the 3DS so late into its EoL. It was a solid system with a decent-sized userbase. It'd be a shame to throw it out all at once (which would alienate more than a few consumers). That was one of many mistakes Sega made when they essentially disowned the Mega Drive/Genesis to focus on the Saturn (and look how that turned out).

    Ya, it makes sense. Although a good portion of Nintendo's consumers are teens and adults. A lot of these adults do have disposable income and are willing to spend it on shiny new Ninty stuff. This is why i don't understand why there are not more bundles for the New2DSXL.

    I mean it’s old as in the 3DS’ life span. You don’t announce a bundle of a console that’s about to die with one of its earliest games.

    Would be nice as a New 2DS XL bundle. Have they COMPLETELY forgotten about it? There's been 2-3 Old 2DS bundles announced since the New 2DS XL's release. Wtf Ninty?

    Size of (collector + fanboy + newcomer) market is bigger than (collectors + some fanboys)

    N2DS has the same marketing problem as PSP Street, the missing features don't make it a disaster but why buy one if you can get a new N3DS for 10 € more or a well-kept used one for less?

    This looks ugly. I'll stick with the SNES 3DS, now that looks cool.

    I'm a huge fan of the color green so this looks really cool to me. I might just pick this up since I'm such a HUGE Zelda geek. (Also legit Zelda cia)

    I'm not a fan of the green color but I'm glad it has yellow buttons. Overall it looks beautiful.
