Nintendo has revealed the New Nintendo 2DS XL, which will arrive in Australia/NZ on June 15 and the US on July 28. The new system will have a recommended retail price of USD $150 / AUD $200.
According to Nintendo the device should fill a hole between the existing Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, with a price and list of features that sits between both.
“This new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.”
The New Nintendo 2DS XL will boast a screen as large as the one on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, though visuals will obviously only be displayed in 2D. Nintendo reports the system is lighter but still packs the same power as the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
