2ds-610x486

 Nintendo recently announced the 2DS which is a 3DS completely flat and as the name suggests lacks 3D. While it make look like a mock-up and I’ll admit I had to do a double take before I took it seriously. The 2DS will be available on 12th October which is the same day as Pokemon X and Y. It has all of the other features that the 3DS has and will come with a 4GB memory card. It is aimed at those younger then 7 as Reggie explains:

“We’re always thinking about what we can do that’s new, unique, different, and brings more people into this category that we love, and so with the Nintendo 3DS, we were clear to parents that, ‘hey, we recommend that your children be seven and older to utilize this device.’ So clearly that creates an opportunity for five-year-olds, six-year-olds, that first-time handheld gaming consumer.”

The 2DS will retail for just $129.99.
