Nintendo has already been offering a 2DS bundle with a pre-installed copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2. But if Scarlet Red isn’t your thing, perhaps you’ll be interested in the latest color option.

This summer, Nintendo will be offering the 2DS Electric Blue system. Aside from the color difference, there are no other changes. This one also comes with New Super Mario Bros. 2 and will be sold for $79.99.

Yesterday, we received some information about sales focused around the Black Friday / Thanksgiving shopping period. The NES Classic Edition and New 3DS XL Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition were both cited as “products most likely to run out-of-stock”.

So how about Cyber Monday? Well, additional data from Adobe indicates that the Yo-kai Watch 2DS bundle was at risk for running out of stock. No specific data was provided, but it sounds like Nintendo has done pretty well in sales over the past few days.

A gold and white 2DS based on New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be releasing in Japan on December 15. The 2DS will come with a 4GB SD card that has New Super Mario Bros. 2 installed and an AC adapter. It’s probably no coincidence that this edition is releasing the same month as Super Mario Run will hit iOS stores. We’ll update if the system is announced for other territories.



Pre-orders are starting to open for the new 2DS colors. Nintendo announced a color swap caused by Luigi early in the week.

You can reserve the new version of Electric Blue here. Crimson Red is here. Both come with a copy of Mario Kart 7 pre-installed.

In November, Nintendo will be releasing a new color scheme for the 2DS across North America. The old look featured a black front with red/blue on the sides. However, in what Nintendo says was an “incident” caused by Luigi, the new look is red/blue on the front and black on the sides. Like other 2DS systems, it’ll cost $80.

Nintendo’s quirky announcement about the color scheme along with the full announcement is attached below.
