Nintendo to Cut Prices of Five Best-Selling 3DS Titles

By William Bishop, April 18, 2014 8

As of April 22nd, Nintendo will be dropping the prices of five of their best-selling 3DS Games: Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario Kart 7, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and, believe it or not, Animal Crossing: New Leaf. These games will all be cut down to $29.99 for both physical copies and digital download.
