The company announced Thursday that it will release the Nintendo 2DS XL later this year.

Nintendo has caught the gaming world by surprise with the launch of a new cut-priced handheld game console called the 2DS XL. However, the games will be without the 3D effect. Unlike the original 2DS, which is best known for resembling a slice of cake, the New 2DS XL features the same clamshell design found on the 3DS and the DS before that. The portable system is a successor to the wedge-shaped Nintendo 2DS, introduced as a budget option for people who want to play Nintendo 3DS games without paying for stereoscopic 3D support. "New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a handsome clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance".

The new Nintendo 2DS XL will be available to buy on 28 July.

Basically it's the exact same as the New Nintendo 3DS minus the actual 3D, which a large portion of gamers probably turn off anyway.

Latest update on April 28, 2017 at 10:25 AM by PaulRubens. So let's find out what is new about this 2DS XL.

Along with yesterday's reveal, Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement that the New 2DS XL reveal shows Nintendo is still committed to the hand-held market. The new console will have more controls like the C-stick, include a camera, and be able to read Amiibo figures. Remember when Nintendo's handhelds were clearly named (GameBoy, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance) and didn't sound like a word jumble? Pikmin, Miitopia and Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training all set to launch in July.

And now, the company is hoping to add to its fortunenes with the announcement of a new handheld console in the form of the 2DS XL.

In total, the mobile gaming giant sold almost 2.74 million units of the Switch console globally in less than a month.
