The 2DS is getting yet another price cut on May 20th. Less than a year after Nintendo brought it down to $100, from $130 originally, the company revealed today that its handheld console will now cost $80. That puts the 2DS in impulse-buy territory, so long as you're willing to live without the three-dimensional effect found on the flagship 3DS. It does come with a digital copy of Mario Kart 7, though, which is about a $20 value on its own.

Yesterday, Nintendo also announced the release date for Pokémon Sun and Moon, in case you're looking for a reason to spend $80 on the 2DS. Although those games won't be available until November 18th, there are plenty others coming out over the next few weeks, including Kirby: Planet Robobot and the long-awaited Mighty No. 9.
