Nintendo 2DS Box

It's is a scaled-back version of the Nintendo 3DS which is compatibile with Nintendo DS and 3DS games, but uses a new flat design rather than the clamshell design. Whereas this affords not screen protection, it seems more comfortable to hold for longer gaming sessions.

Nintendo 2DS Handheld

Unlike the Nintendo 3DS, which uses 2 display screens (a lower touchscreen panel and a top dual-layered screen panel capable of displaying glasses-free stereoscopic 3D) the 2DS uses a single display touch panel with the illusion of two screens due to the overlay template laid on top of the screen.

Despite its inability to display in 3D, the 2DS has dual cameras for taking pictures in 3D which can be seen in 3D when viewed on a Nintendo 3DS or other 3D-enabled device.

Nintendo 2DS handheld Rear of the Nintendo 2DS showing the A/C port, cart slot and shoulder buttons. The Nintendo 2DS only has an internal mono speaker, as opposed to the internal stereo speakers of the 3DS, although stereo sound can still be outputted through the headphone jack, as well as pseudo-surround sound.

The 2DS is compatible with all Nintendo 3DS software and online services via the Nintendo Network, such as StreetPass and SpotPass. The 2DS uses the Home Menu as its graphical user interface and launching software stored on game cards, on a SD card, and DSiWare titles installed in the system's internal memory.

Nintendo 2DS handheld The A, B, X, Y buttons on the right side of the Nintendo 2DS. Its buttons are positioned towards the center of the device instead of near the lower screen, and its shoulder buttons are concave in shape and relatively thicker than those of the 3DS.
Nintendo 2DS handheld The D-pad and analog stick on the left side of the Nintendo 2DS. Cases for the 2DS were released simultaneously with the system's launch. The cases were made to improve portability of the system, due to the lack of hinges on the 2DS and to prevent screen scratches from carrying the system.
Nintendo 2DS handheld The A/C plug for charging the Nintendo 2DS. The 2DS uses the same 1300mAh battery found in the regular 3DS systems. Despite not supporting the 3DS's Power Save Mode (which dynamically adjusts the screens' backlight based on screen contents) the 2DS has a slightly better battery life than the 3DS. Nintendo says the 2DS is able to play from 3 to 5.5 hours of 3DS games or 5 to 9 hours of DS games on a single charge.

Nintendo 2DS Accessories

Nintendo 2DS Accessories Games requiring a stylus are always towards the bottom of my list. I'm more of a run 'n gun sort of player, but some of the non-gaming functions of the 2DS make a stylus quite handy. I couldn't resist these Skylanders styluses for the DS line. As shown, I picked up Spyro and Chop Chop.
Nintendo 2DS Accessories I found these Nerf branded Blaster Styluses, made by PDP, on the "clearance rack", at Toys R Us.
