Nintendo has been going very well with the sales of its recently released Switch console but the previous rulers, the 3DS “family” of systems is also kept intact. As announced by the company, we are looking forward to the titles like Fire Emblem Echoes and Hey! Pikmin. The newest addition to the family is the “Nintendo 2DS XL.”
If you ever owned a Nintendo 2DS or even had the experience of playing on it at a friend’s house, you must have been familiar to what it is capable of. The new 2DS XL is actually a modified version of the older 2DS model. Packed in a smaller chassis, the new console features the power of what we had in the 3DS XL at a relatively cheaper price.
The Design Of 2DS XL
Talking about the design, it looks more like a ‘wedge-shaped’ console which got rid of the glasses-free 3D and the unique clamshell design. To many, this design may not be very appealing and it still lacks the 3D support. Some added features in this console include:
- “C-stick,” a newer addition to the hardware of the console which provides better controls for games such as ‘The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D’
- “ZL” and “ZR” buttons on the panel
- A built-in NFC functionality for Amiibo support
The Best Part Of The Deal
In addition to other features, the Nintendo offers support for all the previous titles of 3DS and New 3DS games to be played on this console. Also, contrary to what happened in the past version, this time company has decided to include an AC adapter in the package to charge the New 2DS XL.
How Much For This?
According to the reports, Nintendo has decided to release the console along with two titles on July 28. The console with 2 games, Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia will be available for $150. So grab your copies in the early batches by placing your pre-order right now.
