In a surprise move Nintendo announced the New Nintendo 2DS XL handheld gaming console a few hours ago. The New Nintendo 2DS XL is no where close to what the Nintendo 2DS looks like.
The New Nintendo 2DS XL looks more like the New Nintendo 3DS XL without the 3D slider. It has a C stick, Amiibo compatible NFC reader, bigger screens when compared to the old 2DS. Screen size on New Nintendo 2DS XL and New Nintendo 3DS XL are the same.
The volume rocker is present on the left side of the bottom screen, the home button has been moved below the D pad, and the micro sd card slot is on the bottom (no more popping the back off to change the sd card, yeah.).
The new console is priced at $150 in the United States and will be released on July 28th 2017. You can however pre order one from Gamestop right now.
