Nintendo of America has released information about the upcoming Crystal Blue and Crystal Red 2DS consoles that will be launching this month. Along with mentioning the semi-transparent design, Nintendo also revealed something else interesting about them: they will be launching at $99 each. This is a lower price than the $129 that the current 2DS models are selling at. Which means that we should be expecting a price drop on the model across the board soon.
The Crystal Blue and Crystal Red Nintendo 2DS will launch on November 21st alongside Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. Check out the full press release below.

With a durable design and lower price point, Nintendo 2DS is a great first-time system for kids or anyone new to portable gaming. Its unique combination of video game fun and value will become even clearer on Nov. 21 when Nintendo launches new Crystal Red and Crystal Blue Nintendo 2DS systems at a suggested retail price of $99.99 each. Kids will love the slick semi-transparent design, and gamers of all ages will enjoy having access to a library of more than 3,000 games, including the recently launched Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and other great games like Mario Kart 7 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
The Crystal Red and Crystal Blue systems are launching alongside Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, the next great Pokémon adventures coming to retail stores, Nintendo.com and the Nintendo eShop at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each.
The Nintendo 2DS system plays all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, is backward compatible with a huge library of Nintendo DS games and also offers the ability to download games from the Nintendo eShop. The system maintains many of the same hardware and connected features as Nintendo 3DS such as touch-screen controls, StreetPass, Miiverse and online multiplayer functionality. Without any hinges, Nintendo 2DS is an affordable, durable gaming system and offers a great entry point into the Nintendo hand-held experience.
