    Default Nintendo announce the 2DS

    Nintendo has announced a new version of the 3DS handheld console that plays all 3DS and DS games in 2D.
    The Nintendo 2DS, part of the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles, is designed specifically for anyone looking for a more affordable entry point into 3DS gaming.
    For more information on how it plays, read our [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], including exclusive comparison images.
    It will be available in "White + Red" or "Blue + Black" from 12th October, the same day Pokémon X and Pokémon Y comes out. Nintendo of Europe doesn't set the price of hardware in the UK, but GAME has set its price as £109.99. Look for more shop prices to go live very soon.
    The Nintendo 2DS plays the entire library of packaged and downloadable games for Nintendo 3DS only in 2D, and features a fixed, slate-type form factor. Optional carry cases will be available in red or blue at launch for $12.99 a pop.



    As for hardware features, the 2DS shares the Nintendo 3DS' dual screens, gameplay controls and touchscreen features, and has backward compatibility with the existing library of over 2000 DS games. There's also wireless connectivity for online multiplayer, Nintendo Video and access to the eShop.
    The Nintendo 2DS and the just-announced price cut to the Wii U puts Nintendo in a strong position coming into the crucial Christmas sales period, Nintendo of America chief Reggie Fils-Aime said.
    "Nintendo has one of the strongest and most diverse video game lineups in our history," he said.
    "Today we're making those unique Nintendo experiences more accessible and affordable. However you play and whatever you play, Nintendo has you covered."

    Probably a load of old Wii U controller prototype cases that they didn't know what the funk to do with!

    If it is in fact £109.99 then that is daft. You can get a 3DS XL with a game for £169.99.

    I thought this was an April 1st joke that had been trauled up or something.

    I can only imagine its aimed at a younger audience that would otherwise break something with hinges.

    Making a 2D version of a 3D console just shows how utterly useless and un-needed 3D is too. I was hoping that they could make some games that would be unplayable without it being in 3D, but obviously that's never going to happen.

    That said, I still want one.

    I dont think they could do that as not everybody can see 3d. It is a nonsense though. Nintendo have lost their way so badly in the last few years that you really have to worry about their future. They must have made a massive loss of the wii u.

    They are stubborn. They are sitting on a massive 3rd party cash cow!

    They used to license games out years ago so why not do it again.

    They seem to want to continue to make consoles but do not listen to western audiences on what we want. If they produced ip for the other consoles i would buy mario, zelda etc. but i refuse to buy a console AGAIN for a small selection of rehashed games. They seem to be doing lots of remakes as well. I dont want to play wind waker, ocarina, star fox or mario 64 again in a remixed way. Im quite happy playing the originals.

    I guess if they made third party stuff they would only be able to bring the same game out every 10 years instead of every single year though.

    WTF are Nintendo doing?!? It looks ridiculous. And if the device doesnt display 3D content why does it have dual cameras at the back?
    Its definitely an odd release. If it was priced at 80 quid I reckon it just might sell but in comparison to the current 3DS lines new or second hand I'd stick clear of the 2DS.
