Offering you additional variety and value in your handheld gaming options, the Nintendo 2DS is a streamlined version of the Nintendo 3DS that will play games available for Nintendo 3DS, as well as Nintendo DS in 2D.
The Nintendo 2DS retains many of the same hardware features as the Nintendo 3DS including the same Nintendo 3DS gameplay controls, backwards compatibility with the vast existing library of Nintendo DS games, as well as wireless connectivity features such as access to Nintendo eShop as well as StreetPass and SpotPass functionality. However the console takes on a new distinctive fixed, slate form design, and will play all packaged and download Nintendo 3DS games in 2D.
The new console is a great introduction for those unfamiliar with Nintendo, and it is also a fantastic new way to enjoy the handheld experience for those already a part of the DS family.
Your Nintendo 2DS purchase includes:
- Nintendo 2DS System
- Nintendo 2DS stylus
- Nintendo 3DS AC Adapter

Put your Mii centre stage in a world full of possibilities. In Tomodachi Life, populate your very own island with the Mii characters of family, friends or anyone else you can think of. All kinds of quirky, unexpected things will happen on your island, so check back every day to see what life throws at your residents.
The History of Tomodachi Life “Tomodachi” means “friend” in Japanese, and “friends” are at the heart of this game. The first game in the series was released for Nintendo DS only in Japan, taking the country by storm back in 2009. The series has gone on to sell over 5.5 million copies in Japan to date. Game creator Yoshio Sakamoto envisioned a game where players could experience Mii characters almost as pets – watching them interact and feeling empathy for what happens to them.
What can happen in your Tomodachi Life? You, your friends and your favourite celebrities can live together in a bustling apartment block, where you can drop by to check up on everyone and help solve their woes. Through helping and interacting with your Mii characters, you can raise their happiness levels (or sometimes disappoint them....). As you do so, all sorts of wacky and wonderful things can happen to your island community.
Throughout the day you can pop into the supermarket to buy delicious food from all around the world and hit the shops for the latest fashion. What’s in stock changes every day, so you’ll always find something new. The dedicated island news network Mii News keeps you up-to-date with the latest news and island gossip. You can play games with your Miis and even watch fights break out when things turn sour. Marry the person of your dreams, move out to the ‘burbs and start a little family.
