Nintendo 2DS price drops to $99.99 on Aug. 30

The Nintendo 2DS price drops  from $129.99 to $99.99 on Aug. 30, the company announced this morning.

The 2DS will still come packed with the digital version of Mario Kart 7, Nintendo confirmed.

The price drop lands as Nintendo prepares to launch Little Battlers eXperience Aug. 21 for the 2DS and Nintendo 3DS. In the game, players build, customize and battle robots made from more than 4,000 parts.

The Nintendo 2DS was released in North America on Oct. 12, 2013. The console plays the entire 3DS and DS libraries, but only in 2D. The form factor is a "fixed slate" as opposed to the 3DS' clamshell-style folding design. The hardware features remain the same, including the dual screens and touch screen.
