[Let’s Talk] The New 2DS XL

Posted on April 29, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, Let's Talk

Probably the biggest piece of Nintendo news this week was the reveal of the New 2DS XL. A new hardware announcement was definitely unexpected – especially another iteration of the 3DS.

But here we are. The 2DS XL exists. It’s like a combination of the New 3DS XL and 2DS, so it makes sense that the $150 price point also falls between the two.

Many of the New 3DS XL features are here. You’re getting the same large screen, power, and built-in NFC support. There’s no stereoscopic 3D support, but the system is lighter.

So what does everyone make of the New 2DS XL? Do you have any interest in it at all? Do you believe it’s smart for Nintendo to be introducing another model of the 3DS? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Potential SNES Mini games


The original Star Fox has never been released on the virtual console so that would be a great addition and… How about the finished but unreleased Star Fox 2?!?!?


I hope it comes to fruition. I hope they do all the way up to a Gamecube Mini, especially if they intend to release GC VC for the Switch. ♥ Animal Crossing PG, and a new Animal Crossing on one hybrid-portable!? Yes, please!

As for the SNES Mini? Third party galore, ya’ll. Both Breath of Fire games, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy titles, Bahamut Lagoon (finally officially translated), Gradius 3, Ogre Battle, Mega Man (esp X), Secret of Mana.

I’m not interested in Lufia, but I know they’re cult classics.

For first party: Earthbound (with unaltered localization!), Kirby games, etc.


Super Mario World
Super Mario All-Stars
Super Mario RPG
Super Mario Kart
Super Metroid
Link to the Past, Star Fox
Final Fantasy 2/3
Mega Man X/X2/X3
Actraiser 1/2
Super R-Type
Gradius III/IV
Chrono Trigger
Donkey Kong Country 1/2/3
Super Ghouls and Ghosts
Super Castlevania IV
Super Punch-Out
Contra III
Secret of Mana

That’d be a solid lineup that would knock it out of the park for me.


My guess on the lineup:

1. Actraiser
2. Axelay
3. Breath of Fire
4. Chrono Trigger
5. Contra III
6. Cybernator
7. Demon’s Crest
8. Donkey Kong Country
9. Donkey Kong Country II
10. Earthbound
11. F-Zero
12. Final Fantasy VI
13. Gradius III
14. Kirby’s Dreamland III
15. Kirby Super Star
16. Legend of the Mystical Ninja
17. Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
18. Mega Man X
19. Mega Man X2
20. Pac-Attack
21. Pilotwings
22. Secret of Mana
23. Super Castlevania IV
24. Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts
25. Super Mario Kart
26. Super Mario RPG
27. Super Mario World
28. Super Metroid
29. Super Punch-Out
30. Super Street Fighter II
