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.
