    It’s just too bad it’s so ugly.

    Nah, it’s still region locked.

    Now Americans can see formerly cute Nipponese girls in black face too!

    I do, but a new one would come at too late a firmware to hack.

    Wasn’t even aware of the new 11.0 update, but apparently HBL can load even on that heh.

    ERADICATE THIS FILTH.

    AND SEND THE SURVIVORS TO A COTTON FIELD.

    I was getting worried that Disney Magical World 2 wouldn’t make it. Good to here that it is on the way.

    The 2DS deal? Seems only America is getting a price drop.

    For the majority who don’t play Japanese games, it’s a good deal.

    Besides, region lock is an easy bypass. That, or just import an Asian console, like me.

    This is a kickass deal. Still, I already have mine, but for those that don’t mind not having 3D and want a 3DS in some way shape or form, this is for you.

    Why were white/asian girls turned into blacks? Nothing wrong with that especially since I’m light skinned black myself (though I look much more closer to mixed), but just curious.

    This couldn’t have anything to do with the new and improved 3DS coming out, could it?

    Oh, right. Censorship.

    Still though, why were the girls turned into blacks? Or at least got tans?

    Too little too late. Girl’s Mode 3 doesn’t even have male fashion, what a total step down from Trendsetters.

    They also gave them “African sounding” non-names like “Noor”.

    Nintendo of America is confusing sometimes, man.

    I can only think that they’re desperate to move 2ds’s with this kind of price drop.
    They were already cheaper than the 3ds, and the n3ds makes the 3ds obsolete.
    Plus they’re kind of fragile and ugly…

    Then there’s the nx coming next year.

    Combine this all with the fact that the 2ds was never a hot seller in the west, they’re probably desperate to get this thing off shelves before the nx arrives.
    Maybe to save face, maybe something else, whatever the hell it is that nintendo of japan dictates many of its seemingly random decisions by.

    No thanks. I’ve already had my fill during my stop at an American Airport.

    You say it’s a good deal, then suggest people spend more money importing a Japanese version.

    I’m on to you, Dr of Style.
