2dsNintendo today announced the 2DS, a new “entry-level” 3DS for anyone looking for “a more affordable entry point” into Nintendo’s library of hand-held games.

The 2DS is backwards compatible with every 3DS and DS game currently available and comes with all your usual 3DS apps and features such as Wi-Fi and StreetPass functionality. It only boasts one speaker, though, and doesn’t have the luxury of playing games in 3D–nor does it have the 3DS’s signature hinged design. However, if you haven’t invested in a 3DS yet and don’t care much about the 3D effects (or it actually fitting in your pocket), then the 2DS is right up your alley.

The 2DS will go on sale starting October 12 and be available in Red and Blue versions for $129.99.
