A new unboxing video for Nintendo 2DS by UK retailer GAME shows off some of the new features of the system, while also comparing it to Nintendo’s other current portable devices. One of the highlights of the video comes during a game of Mario Kart 7, when the demonstrator shows off the new curved, embedded L and R buttons on top of the console and proclaims them to be quite comfortable for that game specifically. Other takeaways from the video are the demonstration of a new sleep mode switch at the bottom of the system, as well as the fact that it is still possible to take 3D images with the device, due to the two camera lenses on the back of it. The stylus also appears larger than the 3DS stylus.
There have been many revelations and reactions regarding Nintendo’s new 2DS handheld, including the eyebrow-raising news that the device actually has only one screen. Gamers will be able to experience the new handheld console for themselves on October 12th, at a retail cost of $129.99.
