Watch the Official Commercial for the Nintendo 2DS

“What’s a 2DS?” That’s the question Nintendo is hoping to have customers avoid asking when they’re in the electronics department of Walmart trying to figure out why the Pokemon game clearly says “3DS” but the console is one dimension less than that. As such, Nintendo has launched a thirty-six second television spot quickly explaining what a 2DS is and showing the games it can play including Mario Kart 7, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and of course, Pokemon X and Y. Currently airing predominately during children’s programming, it’s clear Nintendo wants this console variant to be a success amongst youth.
