When the Nintendo 2DS was revealed this summer, one of the surprising design decisions of Nintendo's very surprising handheld was that the dual-screen device was actually built with just one LCD screen. As USgamer discovered, underneath all that plastic, the 2DS screens are a shared touchscreen.
In a new teardown of the device posted by Rose Colored Gaming to Facebook, we get full confirmation of that engineering decision and a peek at the single screen that powers the 2DS. "It is indeed just ONE LCD under a bunch of plastic and metal shrouding," Rose Colored Gaming writes.
A second image shows some of that shrouding, offering a bit of context on the size of the screen compared to other parts gutted from the 2DS.
The Nintendo 2DS was released this weekend on Oct. 12 in North America for $129.99.
