Nintendo announces 2DS XL, out June 15

In a surprise reveal, Nintendo just announced that they will release a new console from the portable 3DS lineup, which is the New Nintendo 2DS XL. The Nintendo 2DS XL gaming device gives consumers a third choice of hand-held game systems, one that offers pricing and features that fit between the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. On Thursday, in an announcement that came from left field, Nintendo unveiled a new Nintendo 2DS XL system. Both look quite nice in my opinion and at £115, it could be a nice cheap purchase for those who missed out on the 3DS generation of games. The 2DS XL, decked out in black and turquoise, supports all DS games, as well as first-gen and New 3DS games in 2D - meaning that its game library spans over a thousand titles. It gradually replaced the original Nintendo 3DS, despite few games actually requiring the new handheld.

Completely out of the blue, Nintendo has announced a brand new console - in the form of a bigger version of the 2DS handheld.

It will also be available in Japan as the New 2DS LL - following the existing naming scheme for the larger 3DS.

The worst three years of the slower-planted group continued the battle with hard weather into the summer. Warm, dry weather during the weekend allowed farmers to get in the fields to plant corn and oats.

The console will go on sale on July 28, but Nintendo is yet to confirm the price. There's a C-stick, Amiibo support, Z-buttons and its compatible with all of the games exclusive to the New 3D XL.

Older titles for 3DS continued to sell, with Mario Kart 7 moving 1.97 million, Pokemon ORAS 1.9 million, Pokemon X&Y 1.41 million, and New Super Mario Bros. Yeah, they have "New" in the actual product names. And although new hardware tends to sell well initially and could bolster declining divisions, Pachter isn't so sure that will happen with the 2DS XL. On the launch day, Nintendo will bundle two new games - Hey Pikmin! and Miitopia - for this portable game system.
