On Aug. 25, a sleek white-and-red Nintendo 2DS system with the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game pre-installed is hitting store shelves at a suggested retail price of only $79.99.

Before getting my Nintendo Switch my go to portable video game entertainment system was the Nintendo 3DS. I have a 3DS XL and a New 3DS XL. I also have a bunch of fun games. A few years ago I went to a special event for Activision and got a ton of great Nintendo 3DS games. I didn’t have a 3DS at that time so I went and picked one up for the family. I was glad that I did. This system is so much fun and great for the whole family to enjoy. It is quite a difference from when I was growing up and I had a Gameboy. I thought that was the height of portable game technology. Things certainly have changed and they are only getting better.

Nintendo has just announced something new and awesome for the family to enjoy. New 3DS games and a great new Nintendo 2DS bundle. The bundle comes with New Super Mario Bros 2 and the 2DS will have a special red and white color scheme. There are now so many options for families to choose from to have affordable handheld gaming to enjoy. Also, each version of the 3DS and 2DS can run the entire library of 3DS games. There are so many to choose from. I’m looking ahead to the fall when a new Metroid one comes out. I have details on that and all the latest bundles and offerings below.
