The Nintendo 2DS’s prices were slashed by $20 on May 11, 2016, now making the device available for a price of $80.

It has been less than a year since Nintendo offered its first price cut on the 2DS and now it has offered the second. The first was back in August 2015, when it dropped its price to $100 from the original retail price of $130.

The Nintendo 2DS comes in a ‘brick’ format and not ‘clamshell’ like the 3DS, so it’s not foldable. It houses 2 screens, one of which is touch-responsive and also lets you doodle on it. The other serves as the screen for games with the same controls as on the 3DS. While it is aimed at a younger audience, the 2DS is capable of running all 3DS games without the 3D effect.

Here are the top five games you must get for you 2DS.

Super Smash Bros.


The latest Super Smash Bros (Rated 7/10) brings a series of new fights, where a player can connect over the Wi-Fi or LAN and compete with up to three opponents.
