Nintendo announced last month that it will drop the price of the Nintendo 3DS by a third on August 12. The Walmart price cut arrives three days early from Nintendo's date, lowering the price from $249.99 to $169.99.
The Walmart price drop has been confirmed by many shoppers across the US.
The early price cut allows users to buy a Nintendo 3DS at the new cheaper price while still enrolling in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Programme. The Ambassador Programme rewards Nintendo 3DS early adopters with ten free NES games and ten free Game Boy Advance games, which can be downloaded to the system at a later date.
Confirmed titles in the US include The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion and Mario vs. Donkey Kong.
To register for the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Programme, users must simply connect their system to the Nintendo eShop before August 12.
Following the Nintendo 3DS price cut announcement, the firm lowered its fiscal forecast by 82% and saw a 12% drop in its stock prices.
