New Nintendo 2DS XL coming July 28 for $149

In one of the least predicted twists in recent gaming memory, Nintendo announced the New Nintendo 2DS XL today. You read that right. It sounds made up but it is coming on July 28 for $149.99

It is basically a more stylish 3DS XL with only 2D screens. It is clearly aimed at milking the last drop out of the 3DS line in terms of easy money. It’s strange to see this post Switch but it at least explains why 3DS systems were so hard to find in stores since last holiday. They likely ran out of stock preparing for this model.

No word on any other changes than the 2D screen, which we already saw on the 2013 2DS. This has the added processing power, RAM and C-Stick of the New 3DS line.
