3DS and 2DS are made for play ⊟
Without mentioning tablets or smartphones, this new UK commercial subtly pitches the 2DS and 3DS to kids as the dedicated gaming handhelds they want to have. The ad comes just days after Futuresource posted results from a research study finding that children aged 3-12 years old in the UK are now more likely to own a tablet than a 3DS.
Pulling kids away from Minecraft and Gun Bros 2 (how is Minecraft still not on a Nintendo platform?) on their tablets will be tough, but if Mario Kart 7 and Pokemon XY can’t do it, I’m not sure what will.

Nintendo combining hardware teams
Starting next month, Nintendo will combine its console (130 engineers) and handheld (150 engineers) teams into one group that will work together, share their knowledge, and optimize their development processes, according to a Nikkei report.
The company aims to bolster connectivity between its portable and home systems, as well as improve online features. Nintendo also looks to speed up its hardware development cycle to match those of tablets and smartphones — so it’s possible we could see even faster console updates (or new console releases) as a result of this change!
