2 DS Pokemon X

As we gear up for an exciting new wave of 3DS titles in the coming months we can expect Nintendo to make another push for Spring and Summer hardware sales. While the system's family has performed rather well, there are plenty of potential consumers yet to take the plunge, with titles such as Tomodachi Life and Super Smash Bros. — among others — likely to spur sales on.

Retailers are pitching in with some deals, however, and as has been the case in recent times Target seems particularly active. This week there's a tasty discount on the red + black 2DS that's bundled with Pokémon X; if you can find it in stores you can grab one for $99, a meaty saving of $50. In a similar move to its recent Mario & Luigi Wii U deal, meanwhile, the retailer is apparently offering a $40 gift voucher with purchases of 3DS XL systems — these cost $199.99.

We've had a quick look around for some 3DS hardware deals in the UK, too, and GAME currently has a couple active on its website. Similar to the Target deal is the Pokémon X + 2DS bundle for £99, while the former UK Nintendo Store exclusive Luigi-themed 3DS XL is currently £139.99 at GAME, a £20 reduction on the retailer's previous price and £40 below the recommended retail price.
