Nintendo 2DS XL – Features
Experience the first console to successfully integrate 3D into gaming without making it seem like just a small gimmick. The 2DS takes everything that was great about the DS and heavily builds onto them. It gives an amazing gaming experience, making it one of the most successful consoles, that is used and loved to this day!
Its main central processing unit is a dual-core ARM11 MPCore-based processor clocked at 266 MHz. One processor core is dedicated to games and applications, while the other core is exclusive to the operating system, enabling multitasking and background tasks. These tasks are handled seamlessly in the background during gameplay or while the system is in sleep mode. The system also contains a single-core ARM9-based processor, enabling backward compatibility with both Nintendo DS and DSi titles.
The console features 2 cameras capable of taking 3D photos and videos, a built-in microphone, and a lithium-ion battery. The longevity is between 3 and 8 hours, depending on the games you are playing.
New Nintendo 2DS XL Console – Games
Even though it features backward compatibility with older Nintendo DS video games, the console has an impressive library on its own. It features over 1300 fun titles to play all day.
MARIO KART 7
With almost 19 million copies sold, Mario Kart 7 is the number 1 best-selling Nintendo 2DS game. As with previous games in the Mario Kart series, players participate in racing on various Mario-themed tracks, playing as one of seventeen different Mario characters. While racing, the players make use of power-up items that either assist their character or hinder opposing characters. In addition, the game includes hang-gliding attachments for karts, the ability to drive underwater, the ability to drive in the first person, and the ability to fully customize the vehicles’ builds.
SUPER SMASH BROS
Like the rest of the Super Smash Bros
. series, this is a non-traditional fighting game where players use different attacks to weaken their opponents and knock them out of an arena. The games are crossover titles that feature characters, items, music, and stages from various Nintendo franchises. Also, from several third-party franchises.
Along with Pokemon Y, this is the second best-selling Nintendo 2DS game. It follows the journey of a young Pokémon trainer and friends, as they train Pokémon. This time, the game takes place in the Kalos region. Which is based in France—with the objective being to thwart the schemes of the nefarious criminal organization Team Flare. X and Y introduced 72 new Pokémon species and includes new features. Like the new Fairy-type, character customization, updated battle and training mechanics, and more.
LEGEND OF ZELDA OCARINA OF TIME
The player controls Link in the fantasy land of Hyrule on a quest to stop the evil king Ganondorf. He has to travel through time and navigate dungeons and an overworld. The game introduced features such as a target-lock system and context-sensitive buttons that have since become common in 3D adventure games. In addition, the player must learn to play numerous songs on an ocarina to progress.
Take control of Luigi, equipped with the Poltergust 5000, a ghost-eating vacuum cleaner, and embark on a quest. Pacify the spirits of Evershade Valley and save Mario from King Boo by gathering the shards of the shattered Dark Moon. You’ll have to explore five themed mansions and solve fun puzzles in order to gather all the missing shards. You can also play with your friends. Also, work together to clear each level of a haunted tower, which we guarantee will have you playing for hours on end.
ANIMAL CROSSING: NEW LEAF
One of the most relaxing games on the 2DS, Animal Crossing has you take the role of a villager mistaken as a mayor of a town inhabited by lots of friendly and quirky characters. As you explore and develop the town, you can collect, buy and sell items to decorate your home and the world around you, with several new activities being added to this game. As the game is open-ended, you’re bound to stay playing it for hours on end.
Works well, feels nice, and I like the overall look better than the original 3ds design. HOWEVER, there are a few nitpicks I have with this.1. The hinges feel not too sturdy, so I feel the need to be extra gentle with it so I don’t accidentally break it.2. The stylus slot is in a different spot but mostly it’s the fact that the stylus is a fat and short stub. Hard to use, even with my small hands. You can’t put a regular 3ds extendable stylus into the slot, it will fall out.3. The joystick could be a little bit more sturdy as well if you ask me.4. The volume slider is in a place where you will most likely move it unintentionally while playing which I find annoying.5. The speakers are covered by your hands when you play, they should be back where they were on the 3ds in my opinion.

Well I bought this pretty much just to play one game because you can’t play it on a standard 3DS (thanks nintendo). I can play it on this so it earns a star for that. All the buttons work, as they should, and the touch screen is responsive and free of any damage even has a screen protector, 2 stars. And it was used so I expected it to come without original packaging and with some bumps. So all’s game so far. I can live with the no stylus sure, but when the device has no sustainable battery AT ALL not really the same kind of portable device. Also it’s pin locked so I can’t even transfer my data from my old device to this if I could carry it farther than the outlet. Pin lock means no store, or anything that the parental code has blocked which I haven’t delved into yet.In short it plays the one game I couldn’t on my other console, and not much else considering.

Nintendo does it again. I love the new 2DS. Both screens are nice IPS and sharp. Highly recommended. I hope with this new hardware refresh we will see the 3DS line and N2DS line around and developed for many years to come.

The New 2DS XL is a success in just about every way, and I would go as far as calling it the definitive version of Nintendo’s handheld for those who can do without support for 3D.Outside the lack of 3D the console sports a sleeker, and lighter design compared to that of the New 3DS XL, while offering the same large, and beautiful screens.Here’s a quick break down of the Pros and Cons!Pros:A smaller, and lighter footprint making it even more ideal for taking your adventures alongside youOffers the same faster processor found in the New 3DS XL for a zippier all around experience, and support for a wider range of gamesScreens are over 80% larger compared to the original 2DSNow supports micro SD cards with no need to remove the back cover, as the most recent iteration of the 3DS required. They have also provided a port cover which offers a nice visual continuity for both the game cartridge, and micro sd slotsNew c stick, and back triggers for expanded control optionsFeels well made, and sits at a fair price pointCharger comes included——Cons:Included stylus is incredibly smallBottom speaker placement not ideal, and it may be possible to muffle the sound depending on how you hold the system, of course headphones are also still an option for those wanting the best possible audio experienceGame images, and pictures can only be viewed in 2D, but whether this is actually seen as a con is entirely subjective as many do not feel they need the feature anyways——So thats about it for the ups and downs if you may be considering a purchase, I love mine and look forward to enjoying gaming on it in the near future!The new two-tone design offers a subtle, and clean sense of style which has left me very pleased with my investment, and if you are a fan of Nintendo, and handheld gaming in general I think you will be too =)

My son loves it.
Lot’s of pros and a few cons, but the cons aren’t deal breakers. The system is fast and downloads are quick, the lack of the 3D feature isn’t even missed. I love the E-shop feature, I just wish Nintendo partnered with better indie game designers as the indie games are not high quality. The few nit-picky cons are the sound quality isn’t top notch, he stylus is not meant for average sized human hands (it’s super tiny) and the top portion of the clam shell design is a bit wobbly and moves on its own if you were to move the system. I’ve bought two and both are the same in this aspect, which is odd for a portable system and something designed for the younger crowd. It’s nice and large, about the size of a very thick check book but still remains pocket-sized and fits in the pocket of average mens pants, which is great.

I got mine for about $370 from seller Delaware as New quality, and thought it would only be the console. Well, it came with Mario Kart 7 preinstalled even though I was trying to avoid it since I have a physical copy, but the system gladly ignored the download version once I had transferred over data from my old 2DS and it saw that I had a cartridge for the game. From seller Delaware, buying New meant a North-American region locked system (what I needed!) new in an unopened box, with Mario Kart 7 included in the deal. (Your mileage may vary with other sellers and this last point).Regarding the New 2DS XL as a system and its overall product design, I have some things of my own to say as someone who once owned a Pink DS Lite and later the original 2DS:- I understand where people are coming from regarding how the system’s closing hinge feels, but I feel like I can adapt to it well. There’s a point in opening where there’s slight resistance before the system is “open flat”, but that serves a purpose from the other direction: once the system is open flat, that resistance point keeps it there against gravity or awkward angles, so you won’t deal with a DS slowly sagging shut if you happen to be lying in bed or otherwise laying down. Compared to my old DS Lite, it does have its pros and cons, but I think I prefer it over the hinge from my childhood. My biggest struggle was that I was used to the quickness of the sleep switch on my old 2DS when I needed to briefly look away from the game, and I need to retrain my instincts to use a game’s built-in “pause” instead. Though, considering the much better portability of this “foldable” system compared to my old 2DS, needing to change my habits for this is well worth it.- I can see why people are complaining about the speakers being largely blocked by their palms when holding the system, but I also think some people may just… grip the system differently than others. With how I grip it, the corners of the console rest more against the center of my palm rather than being surrounded completely. If I accidentally muffle the sound with my hands, it’s rarely and barely.- The complaints about the size of the built-in stylus are fully justified. This thing is tiny and I would rather use the spare styluses I’ve had since the days of my DS lite. When using it for a touchscreen-navigation-based game like Wind Waker or Spore Creatures DS, my hand ends up so close to the screen I can barely see half of it! Some cases I’ve seen for the system come with an XL stylus about the size of a real-life pen, and I might recommend looking at those instead.- The bigger screen is amazing. I never knew what I was missing for all these years! Even my old DS games scale up to fill the screen as much as they can while still keeping aspect ratio, and I swear it brings them new life in a way. Playing D-Pad based games from the old DS days with the circle pad also feels amazing, though I have yet to play any games that require the C-Stick exclusive to the New systems.- Although I still have to get used to the process of opening it and stop feeling like I’m about to damage it, having the SD card and game cartridges lock in BEHIND a closed sort of “flap” is ingenious. There were a few times as a kid or even an adult where I accidentally bumped the edge of the game cartridge that was being used by my DS Lite or 2DS at the time, and lost a fair bit of game progress as it ejected. (I swear I didn’t mean to, Resetti!) With this setup, there’s no chance of that.- I think my personal complaint with the system is an odd one – while my palm doesn’t cover the speakers much, it DOES tend to cover the lights on the system’s edge, including the power light that turns red to warn you of low battery. I wish that either a) there was a specific light on the upper pane of the system that would turn on and shine red when the battery got low, so you were guaranteed to see it (like my old 2DS), or b) those lights were located at one end of the hinge, like the old DS Lite and similar systems.
Was packaged good. Came 2 weeks early. My son loves it!
