Nintendo says the 3D-less new handheld 2DS will help it grow its user base.
Speaking the GameSpot, US execs from the firm said that while the company is still committed to 3D, it wants to grow the audience for its handheld games even further. Today the firm announced the 2DS, a flat slate-like dual-screen version of the 3DS. It plays 3DS games, but shows them in 2D only.
"It doesn't mean that we are not committed at all to 3D and that we don't think that's a really valuable, unique eye-popping feature for a lot of gamers," Nintendo America marketing boss Scott Moffitt told GameSpot.
"We just wanted to continue growing the installed base and needed to find a way to get to a price point that was more accessible for a broad swath of consumers."
"As we surveyed the marketplace, it seemed to us that there was an opportunity for something at that lower, entry level price point," he added.
2DS lands in the UK on October 12th with an RRP of £109.99.
