While the Nintendo Switch is without a doubt Nintendo’s current focus, it does not mean that the company has forgotten about its handheld lineup. For those who are considering getting their hands on a Nintendo handheld, you’ll be pleased to learn that Nintendo has announced a new Electric Blue Nintendo 2DS.

According to Nintendo, this new Electric Blue Nintendo 2DS will come bundled with the New Super Mario Bros. 2 title. This means that you will be getting both a console and possibly one of the most classic Nintendo games to date. The entire bundle will only cost $80 which means that it is pretty affordable as far as gaming systems are concerned.

The bundle isn’t available yet as Nintendo has stated that the bundle will only be released this coming summer, so do keep an eye out for it if it’s something you might be interested in. That being said, many are no doubt wondering about the future of Nintendo’s handhelds. Given that the Switch doubles as both a handheld and a home console, it almost feels like the 3DS/2DS is redundant.

However Nintendo has stated in the past that the company will continue supporting its handhelds until the day comes where the Switch becomes a one-per-person system in a household.
