Nintendo Announces New 3DS Model is… 2DS?
We swear that this isn’t a (intentional) joke.
From high atop Nintendo’s fortress, a single pillar of white smoke bellowed. From this smoke arose the 2DS, the handheld we wanted, nay, needed from them. The reveal was so beautiful, that President Reggie Fils-Aime shed a single tear, and life as we knew it was forever changed. Or it’s just a underpowered 3DS without the ability to play in 3D or close the system for $50 less than its predecessor.
The Nintendo 2DS (seriously, they’re going with that name) will retail for $129.99 on October 12th, and will be available in red/black (red/white for its European release) and blue/black flavors. The boxart claims the system will work on all 3DS and DS games, but good luck completing The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass without the clamshell case.
