Nintendo 2DS is announced!

Should be able to play both DS and 3DS games, but only in 2D.

Have you ever wanted to play some of the many solid 3DS games out there, but at the same time been very keen to fork out some extra for a 3D effect you really do not care much about? The solution is here: Nintendo has in fact announced Nintendo 2DS.

Nintendo 2DS is basically the same as the 3DS, but just the 3D effect, and you should be able to play both 3DS and DS games on it. In addition, the flatter and above to have a lid that his recent predecessors, it looks as designed rather is a mix between the classic Game Bent, a tablet and Wii U controller. How pleasant it is to hold and play remains to be seen.

Otherwise, all of the functionality and standard software online and multiplayer capabilities of 3DS stand. It should even be possible to take 3D images with it, which will be possible to see the 3D whether it leads into a 3DS.

Nintendo 2DS - Introduction

The reasons, according to Nintendo boss in the United States - Reggie Fils-Aime - be simple. First and foremost, they would have a handheld console with the same opportunities as a 3DS for children younger than 7 years, when the 3DS was aimed at children from this age. Second, there should be a cheap alternative to the 3DS and 3DS XL, and to their $ 110 cost respectively 60 and 90 dollars less than the big brothers.

Nintendo 2DS will be on sale from 12th October.
While Pokémon X / Y arrive shelves - which is hardly a coincidence.

It looks terrible in my opinion. I mean why have 2 screens if it doesn't fold? why not just one larger screen that could act as two or one...

Oh my god. I cannot believe they would do this. I thought it was fake until it said the video was uploaded by the official nintendo channel. I was screaming in anger. This is a complete step backwards and 3DS already can disable 3D graphis so all it is is a re design of the Nintendo 3DS hardware. Bull ******* hourseshit.
