Nintendo Launches Family-Friendly 2DS Portable System

Nintendo 2ds (4)

The new Nintendo 2DS system gives you all the features of the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, minus 3D viewing. And the price makes the world of Nintendo games even more accessible.

The Nintendo 3DS family is about to get a fun new addition.  At a suggested retail price of $129.99, the Nintendo 2DS system is designed specifically as an accessible entry point into the exciting world of Nintendo hand-held video games. The Nintendo 2DS system maintains many of the same hardware features as Nintendo 3DS, like touch-screen controls, StreetPass, online multiplayer functionality and the ability to download games.

The Nintendo 2DS plays all packaged and downloadable games designed for Nintendo 3DS in 2D, including beloved franchises like The Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart, Super Mario, and many more. It’s also compatible with the huge library of games for Nintendo DS™.

All three systems in the Nintendo 3DS family offer:

  • Compatibility with all Nintendo 3DS and most Nintendo DS games.
  • Access to the Nintendo eShop, with digital games, free demos, and special offers.
  • Wireless connectivity for multiplayer and co-op play.
  • Parental controls that let adults manage the system’s content.

The Nintendo 2DS system is comfortable and fits easily in the hands of people of all ages. Without any hinges, the durable Nintendo 2DS is an especially perfect first-time system for kids. Available in red and blue, Nintendo 2DS plays all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, including recent hits like Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, as well as upcoming games The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Mario Party: Island Tour (both launching Nov. 22).

In addition, Nintendo 2DS is backward compatible and can play the huge existing library of Nintendo DS games. Two sturdy and soft carrying cases in either red or blue will also be available  for a suggested retail price of $12.99 each.

    If I understand this right, it plays the 3DS games just in 2D. If that is correct that is great.
