The story of Nintendo‘s 2DS handheld begins today, yet its legacy traces back all the way to 1989. As the ambassador of mobile gaming to pop culture, Nintendo has since expanded the original Game Boy platform into a new handheld generation, the 3DS, and presently announces the newest member to the family – the Nintendo 2DS. The 2DS is a triumphant, albeit small gadget, bearing a strong likeness to its counterpart, the 3DS. It can play all 3DS and regular Nintendo DS games, has access to Nintendo 3DS apps (i.e. Nintendo e-Shop), and features dual screens; two cameras; a single speaker, and a 4GB SD card. The tradeoff, however, is that Nintendo 2DS users can only play games in two dimensions. At the same time, the $129 (USD) price tag makes the 2DS a more feasible, considerable alternative to parents of smaller children. For the official release from the brand, enjoy the video below, then look for Nintendo’s 2DS to hit stores on October 12.
