Nintendo, after slashing the price of the 3DS console, is now redesigning this gem of a handheld, likely to streamline costs and make the current price more palatable for the company. The 3DS is a neat console but I haven’t been taken in by its magic quite yet. I did thoroughly enjoy the Nintendo DS as it had games that reminded me of those from my youth as well just solid gaming experiences in general. I think the 3DS may have eschewed some of that vibe in favor of a more modern, technologically sophisticated approach in the form of the 3DS. I hope the console succeeds at its new price point and I can’t wait to try it out on my own in the future.
