In conjunction with the upcoming North American release of the Japanese 3DS smash-hit Disney Magical World, Nintendo will be releasing a “Peach Pink” edition of their 2DS.
There are a few rules I follow when it comes to gaming. Always organize my game library alphabetically and then by packaging (standard cases first, then weird one-off cases sorted by size). No “greatest hits” releases unless they offer some form of extra content I couldn’t get otherwise. And finally, if Nintendo releases a pink version of one of their handhelds, I am forced to own it.
I was in no rush to pick up a 2DS, because I expected that, at some point, a pink and white model would come out in Japan, and that would (a) solve my need for a pink 2DS, and (b) solve my want for a way to easily play Japanese 3DS games.
Well, thanks Nintendo, because you’ve now thrown a wrench into those plans thanks to this stupid GameStop-exclusive model!
If you’re interested in the bundle—and, to be fair, Disney Magical World is supposed to be a really fun Animal Crossing-esque experience—it’ll be in stores on April 11th for $129.
