    Despite Nintendo having recently released the New 2DS XL, it seems that the company isn't stopping focus on the older 2DS model. Nintendo of America's Twitter account showed off a new bundle that's set to hit store shelves on August 25th. Retailing for $79.99, it'll be a standard red and white original 2DS system, with New Super Mario Bros. 2 pre-installed. This is likely being released as a reminder that there's a budget-oriented option for Nintendo fans that aren't invested in the 3DS ecosystem yet.

    This bundle was released in Europe back in 2014.

    Which makes it all the more amusing that NOA only just now decided to release it.

    Couldn't they just made a Mario maker bundle or some other worthwhile game with the 2ds or new 2ds xl instead of probably the worst main line Mario I've played?

    Didn't know Mario bros 3ds was viewed so negatively, will have to replay soon.

    As for the news, it's a bit strange to release the old model now with an old game as a package, but if it works then fair enough.

    Will this even sell over in the U.S? They are not selling like hot cakes in the UK that is for sure. (i am referring to the O2DS only here).

    It would have made more sense to release a limited Edition New 2Ds version of this.

    Honestly though, they're selling an old game with an old console. I don't think this will sell very well

    They've been selling MK7 2DS bundle for a while and it was sold out for the better part of the first half of this year.

    Surely they're just trying to unload some stuff just sitting around in the warehouse, no?

    Not all Mario games are created equal. Remember Mario is missing and hotel Mario?

    I'm aware but we aren't talking about those two. And I'm sure there are people out their who enjoy them and glad they were made.

    And I'll try to do the same for you.

    Nothing wrong with Mario there's a reason he's still around and obviously because people love Mario.
