This summer, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems will soon be adding a new member. The New Nintendo 2DS XL will make its debut in the United States. The New Nintendo 2DS XL system offers consumers 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 new games for Nintendo 3DS: 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 stylish 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 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.
The New Nintendo 2DS XL system is set to release on July 28th in North America for $149.99.
