The Nintendo 2DS (Japanese: ニンテンドー2DS Nintendo 2DS) is a Nintendo 3DS model that does not display 3D images and has a tablet-like design rather than a clamshell design. It was announced on August 28, 2013, and is set for release on October 12, 2013.

It has a recommended retail price of $129.99 for the United States. The system comes with a Nintendo 3DS charger, Nintendo 2DS stylus, 4GB SDHC card, and AR Cards. A carrying case will be available separately.

The Nintendo 2DS has a slightly better battery life than the original Nintendo 3DS, but slightly worse than the Nintendo 3DS XL. Due to being unable to be closed, it has a Sleep Switch. It does not have Power Saving Mode. For games which have a mechanic dependent on closing the console, such as The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Another Code: Two Memories, the Sleep Mode switch behaves the same way for gameplay purposes.[4]

Unlike the other Nintendo 3DS models, its speakers are monoaural unless using headphones. It is slightly heavier than the original Nintendo 3DS, but lighter than the Nintendo 3DS XL. It can take 3D photos, but they can only be viewed in 2D unless transferred to a 3D-capable system.

No version of the Circle Pad Pro for the Nintendo 2DS has been revealed.
