Nintendo 2DS portable gaming system announced

Nintendo has announced its newest member of the Nintendo 3DS family of portable gaming systems designed specifically for anyone looking for a more affordable entry point into the world of Nintendo hand-held video games – the Nintendo 2DS.


In a nutshell, the Nintendo 2DS system gives you all the features of the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, minus the 3D experience. It is compatible with all Nintendo 3DS and most Nintendo DS games, features wireless connectivity for multiplayer and co-op play, and has access to the Nintendo eShop, with digital games, free demos, and special offers.


The Nintendo 2DS will come in Red or Blue colors and will launch on October 12 (same launch date of the Pokemon X and Pokemon Y) at a suggested retail price of $130 or around Php5,800.

      DraStic Emu? Battery-Hungry siya sakin. =( 5 hours yung standard time ng tab ko, pero pag tuloy tuloy na paglalaro ng DraStic, aabot lang ako ng one and a half hour. Maximum na yung 2 hours. Pfft.

      Dude, it’s a 3DS, without the 3D. It’s not a DS.

    I still use my DS mainly because of Pokemon. Almost all the other good titles have iOS and Android versions anyway.

  4. Cuaki says:

    Ok lang ung features dahil minsan lang ako mag-3D. I hope the price tag will not be expensive para di magaya dati sa WII U.
    And, parang tablet ung design. Ok sana Kung parang original DS.

    Im a fan of Nintendo. Parang Jollibee kasi at Nido. Kasama ko sa pag laki. LOL

    I think Im getting this. I hated my 3DS. It hurt my eyes. Kaya hindi nagagamit.

    I cant wait to play Mario Kart and Zelda on this little baby.

    Go Nintendo!

    • Diesel says:

      Meron ka ba talagang 3DS? It hurt your eyes? Didn’t you know that you can turn the 3D off?

  8. It was a wonderful game that faithfully recreated a console Zelda adventure, but
    allowed you to take it on the go with you. The figure itself is extremely detailed with Warnado currently in mid-whirlwind.

    I can confidently say that Warnado is very fun to play as.

    The bad news is Portal 2 will face an onslaught
    of opposition competing for the coveted Game of the
    Year honors, because honestly, the best is still
    yet to come in 2011. I would love to play this again on the 3DS Virtual Console, but want
    a remake even more.
