Nintendo announced today that effective immediately, the popular 3DS handheld system will be marked down to $150 forever. They are also introducing a new bundle (at the new price) that comes with Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed, plus two Mario faceplates. Now why would they pick the middle of the year to discount their current stock of 3DSes? It’s almost like they’re preparing for something.

More happened today: eight more Wii U and 3DS titles joined the $20 Nintendo Selects lineup.

  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Nintendo 3DS); previously $29.99
  • Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (Nintendo 3DS); previously $35.99
  • Tomodachi Life (Nintendo 3DS); previously $35.99
  • Nintendogs + cats: Golden Retriever and New Friends (Nintendo 3DS); previously $39.99

  • Nintendo Land (Wii U); previously $29.99 (actually, this has been resting in the bargain bin at most outlets for $10)
  • LEGO City Undercover (Wii U); previously $49.99

There’s still more: apparently those game-and-amiibo bundles really work, because five more (three games, five different combos) are being added to store shelves containing games that are already out. Here are the bundles and what their included amiibo do….
