Have $100 burning in your pocket and nothing to do with it? Nintendo might just have an a solution for you! Nintendo just announced that the Nintendo DS lite will be dropping to $99.99 – one penny short if a Benjamin. The price drop will take effect starting June 5th.
The Nintendo DS has a fantastic back catalog of software, including plenty of Mario titles. Mario Kart DS, New Super Mario Bros, Mario Party DS, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem, Super Mario 64 DS, and Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story will all be seeing reprints. This time around, they’ll feature a special red casing. Unfortunately, there was no mention in the press release of a price drop on these titles.
Of course, 3DS is already out there and 100% backwards compatible with DS software, but the DSlite also scores you access to the GBA’s massive back catalog. Not to mention that the DS games just look better on original system. And, of course, it’s only $99.99!
