Some of the best titles for Nintendo 3DS are getting a reduction in price.

Nintendo has announced that five of its premier titles for the Nintendo 3DS are going to be having a reduction in price. Starting on April 22, Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario Kart 7 and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will all be available on the 3DS' Nintendo eShop for the price of $29.99. The suggested retail price of these titles will also be dropping to $29.99 to help promote sales of the physical copies of these games (unfortunately, not every retailer may adhere to this price drop).

According to Nintendo, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario Bros. 2 represent the top three best-selling Nintendo 3DS games of all time in the United States. These sound like sweet deals for 3DS owners who have yet to play any of these excellent Nintendo titles. Now if only Pokemon X and Y would follow in their footsteps.
