Nintendo Announces the 2DS, Coming this October

Posted on August 28, 2013 AT 08:48am

Nintendo has announced a new version of its 3DS hardware which is playable only in 2D. Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you the Nintendo 2DS, seriously.

The console will be available in North America from October 12 for $129.99. Nintendo 2DS features a ”fixed, slate-type form factor” instead of the 3DS’ clam design, but retains all other features–well except for the obvious lack of 3D.

The entire 3DS and DS library will be playable on the handheld. Players will be able to get their hands on it when Nintendo tours Simon Malls in North America early in October.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
