Nintendo announces new 2DS colors

Celebrate the holiday season with new Nintendo 2DS colors!

With the holidays approaching fast, Nintendo is working hard to get their holiday lineup out as soon as possible. The first domino to fall in the holiday schedule is on November 21st when Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire hit the shelves. Nintendo is sticking to their guns that the 2DS is perfect for children to start out on. The system is a cheap alternative as well, at stores for 100 dollars.

The two systems, Crystal Red and Crystal Blue, are teaming up for release with the newest Pokémon games, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Fans have been asking for these adventures through the Hoenn region for quite some time and they finally got their wish. The 2DS will play all 3DS games in spectacular non-3D as well as all DS games. The 2DS is another way that Nintendo wants everyone to be able to play their games. The design of these 2DS's remind me of the Game Boy Colors that were clear and purple.

    My face when I remembered that oh yeah, they still made the 2DS! The brick look and the translucent plastic definitely brings back the retro Nintendo feels though, no question.

    It didn't seem like Nintendo was keeping it in their long-term plans did it? Was never really into the 2DS because it doesn't seem too practical in my mind. What's the point of playing 3DS games in 2D? It reminds me of the Game Boy Micro when no one really wanted it.

    That's not actually the main point of the 2DS. They made the 2DS as a cheap alternative to people who want to play 3DS hardware games, but don't want to spend as much.

    From what I hear, most people don't even like playing in 3D anyways, and hardcore gamers certainly don't use it that often, if ever. In fact, some of the ACTUAL GAMES on the hardware aren't even made to support 3D, such as Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor.
