Nintendo is kicking up its drive behind the 2DS
with two Pokemon X/Y
bundles priced at $150, coming to Target and Toys R Us on Friday, December 6. Target will offer a red 2DS system with Pokemon X
pre-installed, while the Toys R Us bundle features a blue system with Pokemon Y
pre-loaded on a SD card.
Nintendo released the 2DS as an alternative to the 3DS earlier this year
, with a standalone price set at $130. The hinge-less hardware's lower price comes at the expense of 3D tech, and with backwards compatibility for 2000+ DS games.
With 4 million copies
of Pokemon X/Y
flying off shelves within 48 hours of release, and 2 million sold in North America to date, Nintendo seems to be hoping the game's prolific performance will boost that of the 2DS' across the holiday season.
