Didn’t see this one coming.
Nintendo have just sprung a major shock on people by announcing the Nintendo 2DS. While still able to play 3DS games, the 2DS doesn’t have any 3D capabilities and has no hinge, and has presumably been introduced to add a lower cost entry point option into Nintendo’s handheld line up and to target younger consumers. Game in the UK have stated a retail price of £109.99 as opposed to £134.99 for the standard 3DS and £164.99 for the XL model.
Apart from the lack of 3D and change to design the 2DS still has all the other functions of it’s big brothers, including the dual cameras on the rear to take 3D pictures. The 2DS will launch is red and blue colour options and will include a 4GB memory card.
The Nintendo 2DS is due to launch in October.
