Nintendo 2DS Officially Announced
Nintendo has announced that it will be bringing a new handheld console to the market, the rather bizarrely named Nintendo 2DS . The new system is being marketed as a cheaper way to enjoy 3DS games, of course without the option of 3D visuals. It will launch on 12 October at the price of £109.99 or $129.99 in the US. Besides not displaying games in 3D the 2DS seems to share all the features of the 3DS, including backwards compatibility with original DS games however it does differ largely in appearance, you can no longer fold down the top screen as you have been able to do with all previous DS models, instead the new system looks more like a tablet with two screens and instead has a switch if you want to put it into sleep mode. You can take a closer look at the Nintendo 2DS in the video below.
