Nintendo's new '2DS' is a 3DS, minus one dimension

Nintendo made the surprise announcement today that it will be releasing the Nintendo 2DS in October. Yes, '2DS'.
Nintendo of America made the surprise announcement today that it will be introducing the Nintendo 2DS in October. The 2DS is described by Nintendo as an "entry-level" handheld that can play all Nintendo 3DS games – minus one dimension, of course. It will launch on October 12 for $129.99, the same day as the release of Pokemon X and Y. The new handheld will be available in blue and red. Form factor-wise, it has no hinge – Nintendo calls it a "slate" style. The company will offer carrying cases for $13 to help protect the otherwise exposed screens. The handheld has essentially the same features as the 3DS, including backwards compatibility with DS titles and wi-fi, access to the eShop digital storefront. Nintendo also announced a price drop on the Wii U to $299.99, effective September 20.
