Nintendo America Cuts 5 First-Party 3DS Games To $29.99

Nintendo America is a crowd pleaser lately, as it announced that it will lower the price of five notable releases, starting April 22, 2014. Here are the games that will be cut down to a price of $29.99 for each:

  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Donkey Kong Returns 3D
  • Mario Kart 7
  • New Super Mario Bros 2

Both retail copies, as well as their digital version on the Nintendo eShop, will receive the price cut. It’s not often that Nintendo takes the cleaver to its own titles, so this will hopefully boost sales considerably for the company.

In particular, we’re excited about Animal Crossing: New Leaf being a wallet-friendly option now. It’s already a large hit, but with even more of your friends joining in, it should get even better.

Perhaps it’s included since Nintendo also launched Disney Magical World in North America last week. It has a few notable similarities with Animal Crossing, but with a world created from Disney franchises.

Sadly, neither of these things have been announced for Europe, as of yet, but hopefully it will be at some point. In the meantime, Europe can dry their tears with a demo for Mario Golf: World Tour, which arrives on the Nintendo eShop this week.

Moreover, Nintendo also announced another quirky simulation game for both North America and Europe called Tomodachi Life. This title will be available on Nintendo 3DS as well.
