New Nintendo 2DS XL Announced

During final days of the NES Classic comes a new console announcement from Nintendo.

The last days of the NES Classic Edition are here. The last inventories of the discontinued NES Classic console are in stores. Nintendo in the meantime has something new coming up that will not smooth things over with people who can't get their hands on a NES Classic.

The Nintendo 3DS family of systems will soon be adding a new member. On July 28, the New Nintendo 2DS XL makes its debut in the United States at a suggested retail price of $149.99. Pre-order of the New Nintendo 2DS XL has already started.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL system gives consumers a third choice of hand-held systems, one that offers pricing and features that fit between the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. New Nintendo 2DS XL will launch on the same day as two big new games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems: Hey! PIKMIN and Miitopia.

“This new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.”

The new system will be available in a black/turquoise color, 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 new Nintendo console is lighter but still packs the same power as New Nintendo 3DS XL, and has built-in NFC support for amiibo cards and figures. It can play the massive library of quality Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games in 2D. Nintendo systems are also the only dedicated video game systems where people can find their favorite characters and game franchises, such as Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Kirby, Pokémon, Fire Emblem, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda.

The $149.99 New Nintendo 2DS XL is available fo pre-order at stores, with a release is in July

Nintendo's handheld consoles are getting competition from the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is also handheld, but offers much more, for another $150. We recommend the New Nintendo 2DS XL only for young kids. Teenagers and other video gamers will get more fun out of the Nintendo Switch on the long term. This week is a great time to find a $299.99 Nintendo Switch in stock.
