Nintendo has today announced the all-new Nintendo 2DS, which is essentially an entry point handheld in the 3DS family. The new handheld will play all 3DS titles but in 2D, which may be tempting for those who want their young ones to play the 3DS but don’t want them using the 3D effect.
The Nintendo 2DS will be available in blue or red beginning on Oct. 12 and will retail for $129.99.
Downloadable games will also play and the system will come in a fixed slate-type form factor, so it won’t close clamshell style like the 3DS. Nintendo DS games will also still play on the 2DS.
