Today, Nintendo announced that starting May 20, the 2DS will be officially priced at $79.99.

Previously, the handheld was listed at a suggested retail price of $99.99. Though, Walmart has been selling the 2DS at a discount.

The Nintendo 2DS originally launched in October 2013 and is shaped like a thin slice of cake. Mmmm cake.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Does anyone with young kids think a 2DS is usable/appropriate for a 5 year old? For reference, my nephew has his own Fire tablet and plays games on it constantly. He can use a smart phone well enough to make a phone call to his grandmother.

I think this would be a cool entry point for him into “real” games, but seeing as I personally don’t have kids I’m not sure if it’s worth it/makes sense.

Any tips are appreciated. Thanks.
