    Nintendo has announced a new bundle for their New Nintendo 3DS. It'll come with a pre-installed copy of Super Mario 3D Land, and costs $150 USD, which Nintendo claims is the cheapest retail price for a N3DS right now. The bundle comes with two faceplates, one with assorted Nintendo characters in an 8-bit style, and a red and blue one with Mario on it.

    Nintendo has also planned to add eight titles to it's Nintendo Selects lineup, which are re-releases of both the Wii U and 3DS's best-selling games for only $20. Both the N3DS and Selects will be available August 26th. The titles are as follows:

    Wii U
    The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD
    Nintendo Land
    LEGO City Undercover

    3DS
    Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
    Tomodachi Life
    Nintendogs+Cats: Golden Retriever and Friends
    LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins

    NINTENDO LAND?

    Sure make a bundled launch title a nintendo select. Yeah it sold well probably cause lots of people bought the DELUXE EDITION. (Still hate myself for it.) :P

    If there no new 3ds xl or new 2ds, that is just sad. Also maybe amiibo bundles would be nice. :)

    How come the regular Wind Waker HD on Amazon is around $80, and the Selects version is available for pre-order at $20?

    Low amount of original copies were printed, making it valuable, and scalpers descended. The selects version is worthless to collectors, so it's going to stay cheap.

    Almost always, publishers disregard unofficial prices when reprinting a game.

    Is that a new 3DS Non-XL? Might consider if they bring that state-side.

    Yes but NOA blacklisted all-white portables a few years back. Even the white faceplate must be imported.

    How does preording online work? I've never done it before? Do you have to put down the full price or part of it then pay the rest later? I know for gamestop when you walk in you have to put like $15 down or something like that.

    You put like 10$ down, but don't do it unless is like Christmas or something, it's not worth it. The only thing I pre-ordered in my life was the Golden and black 3DS with Link between worlds and it was because they would bring it to a store

    I have no idea. I don't have an Edge card/patience for EBgame's online storefront. I went to a brick and mortar location and dropped cash down for it.


    Ah, Ninja'ed.

    Maybe someone else can answer?

    The only other option I have for my N3DS Small right now are the USA ones off amazon selling for $200+ I think its worth it lol. Also, sweet! Only $10! I can put that down then it comes out on payday. The rewards of waiting ^_^

    If you feel like selling off the "8-bit" cover plates, please contact me. (I'm, frankly flipping my preorder after installing A9LH onto it. Maybe ShadowNAND as well.) But I have an European n3DS that I want to put those onto.

    Except Nintendo sent be an email last week about the new Bundle and the selects. So you'd be wrong. A white north american new nintendo 3ds you can get if you wish.
