Some systems come pre-installed with Mario Kart 7 racing game, making the new value price even more appealing for parents who are looking for an entry-level gaming system for their young gamers.
Nintendo 2DS launched in October 2013 and is part of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The system comes with built-in entertainment options and applications to take photos and videos, plus wireless access to Nintendo eShop for those with Internet access.
The design is built to make it easy for smaller hands to hold. The system includes two screens (including a touch screen) and plays Nintendo 3DS games, plus nearly all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games in 2D.
“Nintendo 2DS is the best value available for a portable dedicated gaming system and is great for gaming on the go,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The system has a library full of high-quality games for purchase, some in our Nintendo Selects category for less than $20 each, featuring Mario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Zelda.”
