What It Is

The Nintendo 2DS, handheld game system from Nintendo is a non-3D version of the 3DS. The 2DS can play 3D games designed for the 3DS, but those games will appear in 2D.

Is It Fun?

The 2DS still has two screens with the lower screen being a touch screen. It also has front and rear facing cameras and the same software as the 3DS. That software includes the fun and popular Mii Maker, Street Plaza and Face Raiders game.

Who It’s For

The 2DS is roughly $40 less than the 3DS, which makes is a great option for kids ages 4 and up, who are ready for their first handheld game system.

What To Be Aware Of

The 2DS has a Parental Control section that allows parents to set parameters on what their kids can access. Parents can lock the browser and online store plus set what rated games kids are allowed to play.
