Nintendo shoots for lower price with new Nintendo 2DS

updated 08:12 pm EDT, Wed August 28, 2013

3D screen removed, other cost-cutting measures taken for lower price

In addition to reports of a Wii U price cut, Nintendo has revealed a new Nintendo DS. Dubbed the Nintendo 2DS, the new unit subtracts the 3D capability of its predecessor, eschews the clamshell form factor, and is aimed at a lower price point in an effort to attract more buyers this holiday season.

The unit still plays any 3DS or DS game, but with no 3D effects. Wi-Fi is still included, as is the same stylus and a 4GB memory card. The upper and lower screens are actually a single screen to lower costs, with unused screen real estate blocked by the case of the handheld.

A Nintendo 2DS will retail for $129, $40 cheaper than the current price point for the Nintendo 3DS. The unit will be available in October in both red and blue versions.
