The Nintendo 3DS is the successor to the Nintendo DS, developed by Nintendo and released in 2011. About the same size as the DS Lite, the top screen is capable of 3D effects without the need for glasses, using a process called autosteroscopy. The console also has an external 3D camera. It is backwards compatible with DS software.
The 3DS got a larger version called Nintendo 3DS XL (Nintendo 3DS LL in Japan), released worldwide in 2012. It has screens almost double the size of the 3DS’s while keeping the same resolution, longer battery life and a slightly redesigned look, but otherwise works mostly the same. DS games can be run upscaled (default) or in the original resolution utilizing a smaller screen estate.
On August 28, 2013, Nintendo announced the 2DS, which will retain all the functionality of the 3DS except the 3D effect display and will have a single screen which can simulate a dual screen design. The 2DS plays all 3DS and DS games and was released in October 12, 2013.
