Nintendo is taking the wraps off a new 3DS handheld and announcing price drops for five 3DS titles and three Wii U games.
To start things off, the company unleashed a Super Mario 3D Land 3DS bundle, which includes a preinstalled copy of the game and comes with two cover plates — one sports an 8-bit smorgasbord of iconic characters such as Donkey Kong, Link, Mario, Samus and many others, while the other one features Mario.
It will hold interested customers back by $149.99, and hit shelves on Aug. 26.
