Nintendo Randomly Reveals New 2DS XL, Coming This Summer

Nintendo Randomly Reveals New 2DS XL, Coming This Summer

Announcing its earnings for the final quarter of its 2016 fiscal year on Thursday, Nintendo revealed its global sales figures as well. On July 28, 2017, new Nintendo 2DS XL game system makes its debut in the United States at a suggested retail price of $149.99.

In terms of specifications, the 2DS XL is essentially a 3DS without the 3D gimmick.

The new Nintendo 2DS XL will play all 3DS games, albeit without any 3D capability, and come with a large 4.88-inch screen.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL might tempt players who don't care about 3D but like the clamshell design, while its announcement signals Nintendo's commitment to handheld.




The Nintendo 2DS XL goes on sale on 28 July for $150 (£116), £150 cheaper than the all-in-one Switch, and is available in either turquoise or orange.

There are also some new controls added to the set-up, with the introduction of a C Stick and ZL and ZR as a second set of shoulder buttons, which Nintendo says offers "expanded control options" for gamers. What's more, new games will launch alongside the console (in the United States, at least): Hey!

This summer, Nintendo will release a new addition to the Nintendo 3DS family. Pikimin (which is released the same day), Tomodachi Life follow-up Miitopia, and Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training. The device comes with a high processing power which is the same as that of the 3DS XL, meaning that games will run better on the 2DS XL than on the regular sized 2DS of the past. As the name of the new system implies, visuals will be displayed in 2D only. "PIKMIN" and "Miitopia." Based on the trailer below, U.S. shores might be getting the black & blue color scheme.

So, you would ask yourself whether the all-new Nintendo 2DS XL is worth getting than the other members of the 3DS family?
