Best Nintendo 2DS XL deals: Pre-orders are now live in the UK. Here’s all you need to know about buying Nintendo’s new handheld device, including where to pre-order.
Nintendo has launched the new addition to its portable console lineup this month in the form of the Nintendo 2DS XL – and it looks like it’ll keep the DS line going for at least another year or so.
The new handheld comes with a new design, larger screen, amiibo support, and a MicroSD card slot, and looks to be a decent update to the portable line.
As such, we recommend pre-ordering the device, seeing as Nintendo usually has an issue with not producing enough to meet demand.
Luckily, pre-orders have just gone live over at Amazon UK. You can pre-order the 2DS XL for £129.99 in either Black and Turquoise or White and Orange.
Amazon says the 2DS will ship on July 28, and the official Nintendo site offers some options for pre-ordering if you’re stateside.
You can also pre-order from GAME, where the 2DS XL will cost you £132.99, so if you fancy paying more for some reason, head over to the site now.
Unfortunately, there’s no 3D support, so games will run in 2D – but seeing as 3D isn’t used all that much any more, it’s far from a deal-breaker.
The device is set to go on sale in the US for $150, and we’ll keep you updated with any other pre-order information in the coming weeks.
