"This is an entry-level handheld gaming system," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says.

The system will play all DS and 3DS games and will be $129.99. It is releasing in October to coincide with the release of Pokémon X & Y. Its two screens are the size of the original 3DS, so if you want bigger screens, the 3DS XL is still the way to go. It comes with all the same functionality of the 3DS, but without the top screen rendering in 3D.

Also, buh-bye clamshell.

Just a heads up, but this Dwayne 'The Rock' inspired Pokémon comes out swinging in a blaze of NSFW-ish banter. Gotta love when The Rock himself comes on at the end of the video as well, to describe his love for YouTube.

And why the heck shouldn't the man, with this kind of parody gold? But all in all, Machop --> Machoke --> Machamp --> PokeRock.
