In a surprise announcement, Nintendo has revealed the 6th hardware version of the Nintendo 3DS family – the New Nintendo 2DS XL. The new hardware will be released on July 28th in Canada and retail for $199.99 CAD. The system’s launch will coincide with the release of 3DS titles; Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. The new system will be available in a stylish black/turquoise color, and will use the same size large screen found on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. As the name of the new system implies, visuals will be displayed in 2D only. The system is lighter but still packs the same power as New Nintendo 3DS XL, and has built-in NFC support for amiibo cards and figures. It can play the massive library of quality Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games in 2D.
