Nintendo Announces New Nintendo 2DS XL

Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime

"New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a handsome clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance", he further added during the announcement.

Nintendo has caught the gaming world by surprise with the launch of a new cut-priced handheld game console called the 2DS XL.

On Thursday night, Nintendo announced yet another new console: the "New 2DS XL," the fifth iteration in Nintendo's 3DS handheld line.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL will be released in the market for only $149.99 starting July 28, Friday. Nintendo has since reassured gamers that this isn't the case, and during the company's latest financials, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima announced that they would be renewing their commitment to the handheld console.

As mentioned earlier, the device has an 82 percent larger display compared to the 3DS XL.

Nintendo has taken the wraps off a new portable gaming device.

Nintendo, which has been enjoying better-than-expected success with its Switch console, will launch the 2DS XL while the other Nintendo handhelds remain on store shelves.

You still get the same clamshell design of the current DS consoles but this comes in cool new black and turquoise or white and orange colour options.

Interested in seeing a bunch of folks excitedly playing with the New 2DS XL? There's a C-stick, Amiibo support, Z-buttons and its compatible with all of the games exclusive to the New 3D XL.

There's also built-in NFC support, of course. "WiiU" just slapping the word new in the front of something doesn't make it a good name for a game.

Meanwhile, ArsTechnica says the Switch has sold 2.74million units during its first month on sale, which is "more than the two million it predicted it would ship by March 31".

Pokemon Sun and Moon helped accelerate sales for 3DS hardware software for Nintendo's fiscal year ending March 31.

Many new machines do well initially as hard-core fans tend to buy them.
