Nintendo has confirmed the release of the new Nintendo 2DS XL on July 28 in Europe. It will be launched on the same day as three games launch for the Nintendo 3DS: Hey! PINKMIN, Militopia and Dr Kawashima’s Devilish Brain Training: Can you stay focused?
A message from Nintendo about the new gadget reads: “The new, clamshell-design system will be available in a stylish black/turquoise colour, as well as in white/orange, 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.
“It can play the massive library of quality Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games in 2D.”
