So we know about the European 3DS price drop and cheaper North American 3DS too, and now we have the next big piece in the puzzle: Australia.

Nintendo of Australia announced the 3DS will drop to AU $249.95 from 12th August, down from $349.95. New Zealanders, your price will be NZ $343.99.

As with the other territories, those who've already bought their machine and register it to the eShop before 11th August are eligible for 20 free games: 10 from NES and 10 from Game Boy Advance. Again, as in North America and Europe, the GBA games are exclusive to early adopters — buy your machine after 12th August and you might miss out.

This concludes the price drop information for today.

If you want to know more, we've put together a special Nintendo Ambassador, eShop and Virtual Console FAQ to help you out.
