Crimson Red Nintendo 2DS
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 was released on October 12, 2013 alongside the releases of Pokémon X and Y.
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 is available separately.
The Nintendo 2DS has a slightly longer battery life than the original Nintendo 3DS, but slightly shorter 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. It maintains full 2D compatibility with the Nintendo 3DS themes.
Unlike the other Nintendo 3DS models, it has a single monaural speaker; however, it still retains full stereo audio when 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 was released.
