Nintendo’s 3DS family remains a strong pillar in the Kyoto-based company’s portfolio. And, as revealed last week, a Nintendo 2DS stylized after platforming icon Mario is coming this month.

NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. 2-THEMED NINTENDO 2DS COMING THIS MONTH

The white-and-red colored handheld will warp into stores on August 25 for $79.99, which is the typical price for standard Nintendo 2DS systems. However, New Super Mario Bros. 2 will come preloaded on the device, allowing easy access to one of Mario’s enjoyable if somewhat unremarkable 2D adventures.

Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, issued the following statement regarding the upcoming 2DS model:

“Nintendo 2DS is the ideal system for parents that want to introduce their kids to the creative world of Nintendo that they grew up with. Its budget-friendly price and huge library of games will provide hours of entertainment for the whole family – whether after school, on the weekends or even while traveling.”

Nintendo recently released the New Nintendo 2DS XL, which is a more expensive but still recommendable entry into the 3DS ecosystem. Likewise, in spite of the Nintendo Switch, you still have upcoming games to anticipate for your 3DS or 2DS.
