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 details on screen brightness, weight, battery life and more besides. The overall assessment is rather positive, bearing in mind it's using the core technology (outside of stable 3D, naturally) of the well-established New Nintendo 3DS.

Are you planning to pick up a New 2DS XL at the end of July, or are you perfectly happy with your current handheld? Let us know in the comments.
