Nintendo's 2DS Gets a Minor Makeover this November

Nintendo's 2DS Gets a Minor Makeover this November

The most affordable member of the 3DS family will soon look slightly different for this holiday shopping season.

While just about everyone is waiting on pins and needles for the inevitable NX launch announcement, Nintendo decided to drop a different bombshell likely to leave us all stunned, shocked, and amazed: This November, their 2DS handheld systems will now feature red and blue coloring (respectively) on the face and back, rather than just the sides.

I hope you were sitting down for that, because in 50 years you'll be telling your grandchildren exactly where you were when you heard this world-changing announcement. According to Nintendo canon, these new 2DS models are a result of Luigi getting his first taste of responsibility, and immediately peeing it right down his leg. (Honestly, he should have sent away for a typing wand to accomodate for his stubby fingers.)

While Nintendo's announcement didn't specify a street date, you should be able to find these slightly resdesigned systems in stores come November. And, to be honest, $79.99 isn't bad for a 2DS with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed from the get-go--especially if you've never owned the system or experienced over five years of really great games.
