A new version of the handheld will release in two months time.

New Nintendo 2DS XL will soon join the Nintendo 3DS family – the new handheld will be available on July 28th. The best way to present its new looks and features is to show you this video:

As you see, the refreshed design uses black/turquoise color and the big 2D screens known from its 3D sister console. There are two new games released with the 2DS XL’s launch and we will quote their descriptions:

  • Hey! Pikmin: In this brand-new style of Pikmin game, players guide Captain Olimar through 2D side-scrolling levels and collect Sparklium to refuel his crashed ship, the S.S. Dolphin 2, so he can escape the planet. The touch-screen controls let players choose the right Pikmin to toss at enemies and objects, which is critical to defeating foes and solving the many puzzles Olimar encounters during his adventure.
  • Miitopia: Band together with your Mii and Mii friends to explore your own personalized world of Miitopia. Cast Mii characters into various roles and watch hilarious scenes unfold as they work together to defeat the Dark Lord who has stolen the faces of townspeople of Miitopia. Players can bring in their created Mii characters from the Miitomo or Tomodachi Life games, or create their own Mii team in the game. This game has a lighthearted tone with traditional and strategic RPG-like elements, including customization, relationship building and team management.
