Buy A Nintendo 2DS, Get A Free Game At GameStop
Not bad for $80.
We're well into the era of the Nintendo Switch, but there's still a nostalgic charm to Nintendo's handheld consoles of the past. Released in 2013, the Nintendo 2DS isn't that old, but even at the time it was released, it felt like a step back from the 3D technology introduced with its predecessor, the 3DS. The 2DS was marketed as a more affordable option ($40 cheaper than the 3DS at launch), and some find the tablet shape more comfortable than the 3DS' clamshell design.
If you've been wanting to pick up a Nintendo 2DS, GameStop currently has a great deal on the handheld console. When you purchase a 2DS bundle with New Super Mario Bros. 2, you'll also receive your choice of a free game. The free games available include:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Super Mario Maker
- Super Mario 3D Land
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
- Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
- Star Fox 64 3D
Each of the above games sells for $20 at GameStop (and New Super Mario Bros. 2 sells for $30 on its own), so getting a brand-new (not refurbished) 2DS with two games for $80 is a pretty solid deal. This offer expires Sunday, May 26, so act fast if you want to claim it. You'll have to add both the console bundle and your selected game to your cart, where you'll see the discount applied.
As a reminder, the 2DS can play both DS and 3DS games; it'll just show the 2D visuals. The handheld is a perfect way to revisit some of the best games of the 3DS era, and it also makes a great gift for young ones who are just getting into gaming.
