Nintendo 2DS announced for Europe

Post by Lugia2453 on Wed Aug 28, 2013 1:46 pm

Nintendo has announced a new version of the 3DS coming out in Europe called the 2DS. It'll allow you to play 3DS and DS games in 2D. It will be released on October 12th of this year, priced at $129.99. It will come in white and red and black and blue colors. There hasn't been an announcement for it being released in other regions yet, but it won't be a surprise at all if it happens.

Nintendo today also introduces a new member to the Nintendo 3DS family – Nintendo 2DS***, which will arrive in Europe on 12th October 2013. Offering you additional variety and value in your handheld gaming options, the Nintendo 2DS is a streamlined version of the Nintendo 3DS that will play games available for Nintendo 3DS, as well as Nintendo DS in 2D.

The Nintendo 2DS retains many of the same hardware features as the Nintendo 3DS including the same Nintendo 3DS gameplay controls, backwards compatibility with the vast existing library of Nintendo DS games, as well as wireless connectivity features such as access to Nintendo eShop, plus StreetPass and SpotPass functionality. However the console takes on a distinctive new fixed, slate form design, and will play all packaged and download Nintendo 3DS games in 2D. The new console is designed as an entry point into, or a new way to enjoy, the Nintendo handheld experience and will be available at launch in two colour combinations, WHITE + RED and BLACK + BLUE, with a Nintendo 2DS Carrying Case (in either Red or Blue) that can be purchased separately.

The end of year games line-up for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is going to feature a vast array of games coming exclusively to Wii U and Nintendo 3DS this year, ensuring all can enjoy a choice of some of the best known and most loved franchises Nintendo has to offer. From Pokémon to Donkey Kong, Mario to Zelda, Nintendo will be offering unforgettable gameplay experiences in the months ahead.

Take a look ahead at some of the games and hardware bundles coming soon from Nintendo and third party publishers for Wii U & Nintendo 3DS. (PDF, 163 kB)

I think it's kind of cool actually. I have quite a few friends who don't want to buy a 3DS, but the big price cut makes it very accessible. Aside from the 3D (which I hardly use), the 2DS and 3DS are very alike.
One thing: Why can't I fold it?!

I agree with Dux here.  Not many people actually use the 3D feature of their 3DS, so this is an awesome budget option.  But, it looks really big and clunky without the ability to be folded.

Also, anyone else find it funny that the announcer in this video has an American accent, when this is a Europe only product?

This isn't an only Europe product, this is coming overseas as well.

Awesome.  I've been wanting to get a 3DS for sometime now, but I've always been too poor.  Now may be my chance.
