This week Nintendo Announced a new Nintendo DS system and they announced a Wii U price cut. The new Nintendo DS is called the Nintendo 2DS and it is coming out on October 12, 2013. The system is going to cost $129.99. It is supposed to be for the younger audience because it doesn’t have 3d capabilities. However, it can still play all the Nintendo 3DS games. It also has a new design; the new Nintendo 2DS is a slab that doesn’t open or close. I don’t care for the design at all. It looks really uncomfortable to hold and it doesn’t seem very portable. The original Nintendo DS was a lot more portable, you could close it up and put it in your pocket. What do you think of the new Nintendo 2DS?
The Wii U is also getting a significant price cut. The Wii U Deluxe model is getting a fifty dollar price cut. On September 20, 2013 the Wii U Deluxe model will cost $299.99. This is a step in the right direction for Nintendo and the Wii U. I think the Wii U is a great console, however the lack of games and the high price have been a struggle. Nintendo also announced the Wind Waker HD bundle. It will retail at $299.99 and it will include the new Wind Waker game. Will you be picking up a Wii U this fall? If I didn’t already have one I might consider purchasing this bundle.
