Newsflash: the Nintendo Switch isn’t the only hot new handheld console currently on the market from Nintendo. The company’s portable-only consoles are still wildly popular as well, and Amazon has a nice little deal going for anyone who doesn’t already own one. The Nintendo New 2DS XL sells for $149.99 if you buy it from Nintendo or in stores, and that’s a fair price for this great little handheld video game console. If you head over to Amazon right now though, you can pick one up for $129 even. It’s a great price for a great portable console, and it probably won’t last very long.
Here are some bullet points from the product page:
- Colorful accents add style, while the sleek clamshell design makes it comfortable to hold and helps to keep screens safe from scratches when closed.
- A fast processor offers short loading times, so you can start playing in a snap. And it’s all in a lightweight, play-anywhere package.
- The C Stick brings enhanced controls (like intuitive camera control) to compatible games, while ZL and ZR buttons give you plenty of options.
- Tap an amiibo figure to the near-field communication (NFC) reader on the lower screen to enjoy amiibo features in compatible games.
- You can play all Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and most Nintendo DS games in 2D on this system. Includes AC adapter.
