Nintendo Announce The 2DS
No, it's not an April Fools Prank we assure you but we did have to cross check this with a number of sources. Yes, it's true, Ninteo have announced the 2DS costing $129 and arriving on October 12th. There's no official European date yet but we'd bet on one given the continuing confusion regaring just how crazy 3D gaming will drive your kids. Check out the announcement trailer inside.
UPDATE: The European release will be the same date but at a price of £109
The newest member of the Nintendo 3DS family is designed specifically for anyone looking for a more affordable entry point into the world of Nintendo hand-held video games. Nintendo 2DS will be available in Red or Blue on Oct. 12 at a suggested retail price of $129.99.
Nintendo 2DS plays the entire library of packaged and downloadable games for Nintendo 3DS only in 2D. The system features a distinctive fixed, slate-type form factor, and optional carrying cases will be available in Red or Blue at launch at a suggested retail price of $12.99. Nintendo 2DS maintains many of the same hardware features as Nintendo 3DS: dual screens, game-play controls and touch-screen features. The system also has backward compatibility with the existing library of more than 2,000 Nintendo DS games, as well as access to wireless connectivity features like multiplayer online game play, fun Nintendo Video content and great digitally delivered games in the Nintendo eShop.
