Nintendo announced over the weekend the 2DS XL – a handheld said to give “consumers a new choice that fits between the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systyems.” It’s set to launch on June 15 for a recommended retail price of $199.95 AUD (approximately $220 NZD).
From the press release:
The new, clamshell-design system will be available in a stylish black/turquoise colour, as well as in white/orange, and will use the same size large screen found on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. As the name of the new system implies, visuals will be displayed in 2D only. The system is lighter but still packs the same power as New Nintendo 3DS XL, and has built-in NFC support for amiibo cards and figures.
Is the 2DS XL’s price-point and design enough to make you want to pick one up? Or are you already happy with your 3DS? Let us know in the comments below!
