Nintendo recently unveiled a new handheld gaming console – the 2DS. It is designed as an entry-level device that won’t spank your wallet too hard but will act as a stepping stone into the realm of Nintendo portable console gaming.
The 2DS will support all 3DS games, but it won’t be able to display the games in 3D.
This look like a reasonable starting point for parents whose younglings want some Nintendo action, but also have concerns about the 3D straining their eyes. The 2DS also looks quite robust, so it should be good for kids who haven’t quite learnt how to handle electronics with care.
Sso, what games does Nintendo have lined up for the 3DS in the coming month?
