Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo announces New 2DS XL

I am personally going to wait for the New New 2DSi Lite SP Color Pocket Micro & Knuckles (which at the rate they are going with these revisions, should be announced any day now).

I hope you are aware of the fact that people don't like paying extra for features they have no intention of using.

He says is the best thing Nintendo has shown in years becaus is a 3DS without 3D, that's the point where I may think he talks about the price, but then he goes and says the price is bad, so I end up confused, why is this such a good announcement for him then?

Have you considered that this is his version of the "optimal 3DS" in terms of feature set, but he still feels it misses the mark in price?

It appears you may know nothing about Nintendo, remember this?

Released almost one year after Nintendo DS on NA, I guess DS was not a replacement for GBA after all 

Silly me. I must have missed the part during the whole Switch launch where the Switch actually does have the capacity to acceptand play 3DS cartridges. Care to point out where that port is on the Switch?

So you think if NDS was not able to play GBA cartridges then GBA Micro would have killed NDS momentum? Alright then.



$150, it is a good deal. but for kids, 2DS is fine and very cheap. my kids wanted to play most of the time with Yokai Watch. so maybe by the holidays they can 2DS.



Looks a good product. No doubt the 3DS models which represent the premium range of this line will disappear in the future and it will be Switch as the premium and 2DS as the budget models. As Switch ages there will be budget versions of those. Seems pretty normal for NIntendo.

Quite like the look of it and now with the 3D screen removed I'm sure manufacturing costs have significantly reduced.

No, I mean it's kinda hard to say that this is even remotely the same thing, since the inclusion of a GBA port on the DS means that at launch there was absolutely no reason to doubt the idea that the DS was definitely a replacement for the GBA.

Nintendo has repeated refuted people claims and questions as to whether the Switch is replacing the 3DS. They say plainly that it isn't. The lack of game compatibility indicates that the Switch may not be a replacement for the 3DS, the lack of portable franchises (and I mean those that haven't bounced between home console and portable) annouced for the Switch means the Switch may not be a replacement for the 3DS.

All I'm saying is that we don't actually know at this point whether the Switch is going to replace the 3DS. It's merely an assumption that fans are making.



Its probably to use the Amazing 3DS Library! and the DS Library!

Switch isn't BC to 3DS and DS Games.



Pocky Lover Boy!

Fair enough but I don't think there is eny evidence of the opposite either and looking how well Switch is doing I think is extremelly likely that it will replace it.

Ask me, not him, he is not me.

To answer your question, it's a good announcement because it's finally the product it should have been made.

The price is another matter and was taken out separatedly as such, to match the product its being delivered.

I liked the product announced, still think its price should be lower.



Oh, yeah. Now do it. I wanted this like 3 years ago...
