Are you an avid Nintendo fan?
Recently, our family had the opportunity to check out the Nintendo 2DS console with Super Smash Bros for 3DS game. Wow, I’m not a gamer per se, but I couldn’t put this thing down! It’s super fun to play no matter the age group.
I was excited to see how my daughters would react as they both have the original DS lite from back in the day, and they’ve asked every year for the newest one. The 2DS takes their entertainment to a whole new level.
Compared to the existing line of DS consoles, the 2DS still has two screens (one touchscreen) but it does not fold up into a little package.
As you can see, the buttons are pretty much the same with the exception of the “joystick” or circle pad above the directional arrow buttons. This took some getting used to! Graphically, the 2DS is pretty stunning (from what we’re used to), and even if it doesn’t show in 3D, it’s very crisp and bright.
An SD slot is available for saving photos or playing music.
SUPER COOL FEATURES
The AR cards are my absolute favourite part of this system. Even if you don’t have access to a game but are itching to play, the AR games are ridiculously fun. Essentially you turn your household surface into a 3D play space! I took some videos of this feature in action but I can’t seem to upload them properly. These pics will have to do but really don’t do it justice!
With the 2DS, there is a built in 3DS camera which allows you to take 3D photos and 3D videos (viewable in 2D).
I had a ton of fun playing this with my toddler and teen on separate occasions. It’s a game where your face is a game character! It’s great that no matter what age, the game translates into fun!
I love the fact that the girls can use their older DS games and play them in the newer system.
With the Wireless LED, you can connect to your network and head to the Nintendo e-shop to download additional games. You can also download games from the Virtual Console (Game Boy titles etc) or even DSiWare. With the Nintendo DS, you automatically receive a downloadable version of Mario Kart 7!
You can suspend your game and make notes about the game you are playing!
I personally haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but my daughters had a blast playing Super Smash Bros which is included with the giveaway prize! Super Smash Bros has sold over 2.8 million units worldwide since its release! It MUST be good!
