Since Nintendo Switch got out, there’s been rumors that the 3DS is going away. It would make sense seeing how Nintendo now have a very powerful portable game console with the Nintendo Switch. To stop this speculations Nintendo out of the blue released the new 2DS XL.
The 2DS is the same as the 3DS but without the 3D screen and the eye-tracking camera at $150. It’s $50 cheaper than the 3DS.
It is pretty much a great deal if you don’t like or care for the 3D features. Also at this price it’s almost an impulse buy if itching for some portable gaming. Also a lot of people think that this system will eventually kill-off the 3DS.
Here is what’s new in the 2DS XL:
• New Nintendo 2DS XL system
• New Nintendo 2DS XL stylus
• 4GB microSDHC memory card
• AR Cards x6
• Operations Manual
• AC adapter
