The announcement of this new 2DS XL console takes place only a few weeks after Nintendo launched Nintendo Switch that is going places. The Nintendo 2DS XL debuted out of nowhere and had the markets by surprise!
In a move that was a bit unexpected, Nintendo has announced a new handheld that will launch this summer: the New 2DS XL. 2DS XL will launch on the same day as side-scrolling Pikmin spin-off Hey! This will allow players to play more technical games without 3D support.
Remember when Nintendo's handhelds were clearly named (GameBoy, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance) and didn't sound like a word jumble? The new games can also be played with the 2DS XL.
As you'd expect, the New 2DS XL also includes New 3DS XL features such as the secondary C-pad nub, integrated amiibo support and faster processing power.
The 2DS XL features the same 4.8-inch display found on the 3DS XL.
The new version of the budget-friendly entry-level edition of the Nintendo 3DS will come with a number of hardware upgrades, as well as second analog nub also featured in the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
Included in the box are an AC adapter, a stylus, 6 AR cards and a 4GB microSDHC memory card. "This title has become something of a hot topic due to the way it uses Nintendo Switch in some unconventional ways compared to other game systems".
The U.S. price has been given as $149.99 but the United Kingdom price has yet to be confirmed.
The 2DS XL will work out of the box with any Nintendo 3DS game, as well as 2DS titles. The new version is called the New Nintendo 2DS XL, and is set to launch on July 28th and costs $149.99.
The touch screen helps make the game more fun as it's now easier to fend off enemies and solve puzzles during Olimar's adventure.
