Interesting bundle. I was assuming Nintendo would be pushing the NEW 3DS hardware this holiday season so this is an odd bundle. It's a good price so I think Nintendo is more interested in getting sales of this game and this bundle is really tempting for consumers. I guess the 3d graphics of this game is largely irrelevant so they don't care if people don't see them. I honestly thought the 2DS was being fased out for the NEW 3DS hardware so this bundle is really interesting move by Nintendo.
