Nintendo announces price drops coming to some of its most popular 3DS games

DKReturns3D-official price drop-Nintendo-01

Today, Nintendo announced some price drops coming to some its most popular 3DS titles. Its top three best-selling 3DS games of all time in the US: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario Bros. 2, along with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be getting an official price drop starting April 22 to $29.99 each. Nintendo says customers should see the price drop reflected in both the eShop via 3DS and various retailers.

The 25% price drop sounds enticing, especially for those looking to catch up on some solid 3DS titles, but we have seen most of these titles drop below $30 already from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and others. First party Nintendo titles don’t see discounts nearly as often as other games and platforms, so there is a good chance we could see listings for these particular titles dip even lower following the scheduled price.

While $30 for anyone of these games is a good price considering the value of Nintendo’s well crafted first party games, and is even lower than some current listings, it might be smart to watch out for some even deeper discounts in the weeks after the official sale begins.

  • Full game complete with all 30 MLB teams and 480 current MLB players
  • Play entire 9 inning games in under 20 minutes
  • Easy-to-use classic controls, two buttons to manage gameplay
  • Player characteristics based on real stats
  • Unlock special retro jerseys by completing custom team challenges in season mode

R.B.I. Baseball 14 is available now on the App Store for $5, and according to the official site, it will be available on both PS3 and Xbox 360 ($20) some point today. The developer also said to expect PS4 and Android versions “coming this spring”
