Nintendo Announces 2DS Console

Nintendo just announced a brand new console (sort of) that will be joining the Big N family. Coming October 12th here in North America alongside the worldwide release of Pokemon X & Y, this new portable system will launch with a MSRP of $129.99. What is the Nintendo 2DS? Well, like its name states, it is 2D, not 3D like the 3DS. What that means is, it plays all 3DS and DS games, just not in 3D.

Yeah we know. You didn’t use the 3D anyways. Besides removing the 3D functionality, the system looks like it no longer closes, almost looking a lot like the Wii U GamePad. Interesting indeed. Beginning in October, anyone interested in testing the system themselves can go to any Simon Mall to have a chance to play with the new 2DS.
