Nintendo Drops DS Lite Price and Re-Boxes Mario Games


Nintendo has a new price tag for the Nintendo DS Lite handheld and also redesigns Mario boxes for DS.

The new price for the Nintendo DS Lite will be $99.99 starting June 5th, while the new Mario boxes are simply for marketing and promotional reasons. Here are the list of Mario games getting the new boxes which are being labeled as Mario-Red Boxes (sales numbers are in U.S. only):

  • New Super Mario Bros.: more than 9.25 million units
  • Mario Kart DS: more than 7.40 million units
  • Super Mario 64 DS: more than 4.34 million units
  • Mario Party DS: more than 3.27 million units
  • Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story: more than 1.98 million units
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!: more than 1.01 million units

This obviously shows that the DS is slowly being pushed out while more work conducts on the 3DS. The Nintendo DS family of handhelds has sold more than 48.9 million systems in the U.S. alone.
