Have you longed to play hit Nintendo 3DS games like Monster Hunter 4 and the handheld remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but don't like 3D and don't have $120 to spare?

Well, Nintendo heard your cries Aug. 20, as they announced a price drop for the 2DS.

Polygon has the story:

The Nintendo 2DS price drops from $129.99 to $99.99 on Aug. 30, the company announced this morning.

The 2DS will still come packed with the digital version of Mario Kart 7, Nintendo confirmed.

The price drop lands as Nintendo prepares to launch Little Battlers eXperience Aug. 21 for the 2DS and Nintendo 3DS. In the game, players build, customize and battle robots made from more than 4,000 parts.



At the time of its launch in October 2013, many thought the device was more for young children because of the 3D removal and the sturdier, slab-like build. But everyone can take advantage of the hundreds of games that you can now play at a lower price.

Mario Maker makes a mockery of Mario by turning him into Luigi.

Nintendo will release Super Mario Maker Sept. 11 and the game includes a new power up for the red-overalled plumber. Unfortunately, it gives him the ability to look really deformed.

The game will have a Luigi Mushroom, which is meant to make the titular hero more like his green-sporting brother and not only in the taller and thinner appearance. The 'power up' will also make him jump higher and have less traction.

The Mario wiki tells the origin of the new mushroom:

According to Takashi Tezuka, the form came from a bug that happened in development that made Super Mario skinny. It looks similar to a normal Mushroom with a short cap and a very thin base. It is randomly found in Question Blocks, along with Super Mushrooms, but Luigi Mushrooms are rarer. A Super Mushroom can't overwrite the effect of this mushroom,.. but they can fuse together.



Yeah, but it also makes Mario look like a hunchbacked buffoon! A lanky, awkward creep who slinks his way oilily into the upper reaches of the stratosphere only to grab gobs more mustache wax off the highest gross shelf.

Watch the weirdo do things here:



We're not the only ones who think this. Kotaku expressed their disgust well.
