NoE PR - More must-have 3DS games to join Nintendo Selects on June 29th, plus two more New 2DS XL bundles incoming


For those who wish to discover a game they may have missed the first time around, or simply wish to rediscover it, the Nintendo Selects range and its wide variety of gaming experiences is the ideal place to start. There are already plenty of titles available to enjoy as part of the range, including SUPER MARIO 3D LAND, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and Luigi’s Mansion 2 for Nintendo 3DS family systems.

On 29th June, the Nintendo Selects range will be bolstered with three new additions for Nintendo 3DS family systems, representing some of the handheld’s most popular titles, having sold a combined total of over 4.34 million units across Europe to date*.

The line-up is set to include:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo – Moving to a new town and making new friends is a big step… but it's even bigger when you're the mayor! Get ready to enjoy a whole new life in a town shaped entirely by you. You can use Animal Crossing amiibo cards and figures to invite animals to your village, help you out in minigames or get new items.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D – Go on an adventure with the swingin’ king of the jungle! Donkey Kong and his simian sidekick Diddy Kong are back for more action-packed platforming antics in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, an enhanced version of Wii adventure Donkey Kong Country Returns, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems.

Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS – Create your own courses and play with many different ideas in Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. 100 original courses designed by Nintendo await you in Super Mario Challenge, each one containing additional challenges to defeat and medals to earn.

Today, Nintendo also announces two new members of the New Nintendo 2DS XL family launching on 29th June. New Nintendo 2DS XL plays all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, on a large 4.88 inch screen.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL Black + Lime Green bundle includes Mario Kart 7 pre-installed:

Mario Kart 7 – Soar through the sky and dive underwater as the world of racing gets bigger and better. Not only can you now customise your kart to your heart's content, you are also able to put yourself in the driving seat and steer by using motion controls.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL White + Lavender bundle includes Tomodachi Life pre-installed:

Tomodachi Life – Put your Mii centre stage in a world full of possibilities with Tomodachi Life, a quirky game starring you and everyone you know, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems. Populate your very own island paradise with the Mii characters of your choice and watch the drama unfold.

Nintendo 3DS owners can look forward to another way to experience some classic exclusive games when three titles – Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS – join the Nintendo Selects range across Europe on 29th June. These titles will also be made available for €19,99 / £15.99 (incl. VAT) on Nintendo eShop on the same day**. Launching the same day, look out for two new bundles: New Nintendo 2DS XL Black + Lime Green with Mario Kart 7, and New Nintendo 2DS XL White + Lavender with Tomodachi Life.

Thanks to NintenDaan for the heads up!

3D is dead.
Long live 3D.

I wish they would push for the 3ds instead of the 2ds. I understand they make more money from selling a 2ds, but it's a shame nonetheless with this backwards thinking.

I wish they would have released that white 2DS XL earlier. The color choices we have are not that great.
