Get a mug with the system, too
Long live the 3DS / 2DS, as the portable family keeps ticking along with a helping hand from the Pokémon franchise. One of the first notable releases of 2018 will be the Virtual Console arrival of Pokémon Crystal on the 3DS eShop, due for release on 26th January. Different regions are celebrating in various ways,...
With some extra bits and bobs
In the most recent Nintendo Direct it was confirmed that Europe will get a New 2DS XL that looks like a Poké Ball, arriving along with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on 17th November. Now Nintendo UK's official store has started to take pre-orders. There are three options available, one at the 'standard' price for...
Better late than never
After a long wait, the orange and white New Nintendo 2DS XL will finally be making its way to North America on 6th October. Europe received this particular system earlier this year alongside the launch of the 2DS XL. This news follows several other hardware related announcements during the latest Nintendo Direct -...
Heading for a quiet launch
Nintendo launches new hardware this week, but unlike some of its previous iterations it's arriving rather quietly. In fact, the company hasn't mentioned it all that much on social media in the past week or two, so you may have forgotten it's happening. The New Nintendo 2DS XL arrives on 28th July, alongside Hey! Pikmin and...
Worth the change?
The New Nintendo 2DS XL arrives in late July, but units are already doing the rounds for those keen to preview and review the system. Our video man Alex shared his views on it earlier this week in his own inimitable style. Now our network colleagues at Digital Foundry have produced their formal review, so you can get precise...
An XL in a tiny box
The 3DS 'family' of systems has life in it yet, which is perhaps best typified by the upcoming release of the New Nintendo 2DS XL, a system designed to fit into the market between the low-priced 2DS and the more 'premium' New 3DS XL. We've been looking at the orange and white version once again, so below our video man Alex does...
It's reversible, if that seals the deal for you
As many of you know the European region will be getting two colours of the New 2DS XL when it arrives on 28th July, and being in old Blighty we shared information when some pre-orders opened in the UK for the new portable iteration. Now the Official Nintendo UK Store has pitched in with its pre-order...
Nintendo's new "New" handheld
At recent events in New York City and London we got to spend some time with Nintendo’s newly announced New 2DS XL. The announcement came as a surprise, as many were expecting Nintendo to let the 3DS go quietly into the night as the Switch came to replace it, putting to an end the company’s days of manufacturing...
Final hurrah or testing the waters?
A funny thing happened with an article we wrote regarding comments from Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils Aime on the reasoning behind the New Nintendo 2DS XL. Our 'tagline' was from his TIME interview - ""Boy, I wish there was something in between", a snippet that reflected Nintendo's claim that it's a...
