Nintendo has dropped a new handheld console, the 2DS XL. The 2DS XL is big step up from the toast-shaped 2DS and is essentially the 3DS XL but without the 3D display.
That's really all there is to be said about this. The 2DS XL includes the faster processor, C-stick and NFC reader for Amiibos from the 3DS XL but lacks the 3D display and has a more compact and lighter design. The 2DS XL will still be compatible with all the 3DS games, just that you can't play them in 3D.
The 2DS XL is priced at $149.99 and will be available starting July 28 in the US and July 13 in Japan.
now its not that slow (zetta slow!) anymore...try the new "citra" (on your own risk!) it does not lag anymore with the new improvement they did.
In fact it is "new Nintendo 2DS XL" not the way you call it. Terrible naming though.
DS games are getting kinda old. There is no 3DS emulator yet. There is one on the PC but it's laggy and buggy as hell.
