A 4GB SDHC Memory Card is also included with the Nintendo 2DS system, ensuring an expanded storage offering.

The handheld console is taking on a new distinctive fixed slate form design and has been created for those looking for additional variety in their handheld gaming choices. It is an entry point into or a new way to enjoy the Nintendo handheld experience at a value price and will be available for purchase in two distinctive colour combinations, WHITE + RED and BLACK + BLUE. Nintendo 2DS allows you to play all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, including recently launched games such as Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Luigi’s Mansion 2. Two carrying cases are available to purchase separately too, in either Red or Blue.

Nintendo 2DS is launching on the same day as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, the next instalments in the world-famous Pokémon series. And by purchasing the new system now, you’ll be ready for the upcoming, much-anticipated 22nd November launch of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
