The New Nintendo 2DS XL, originally branded as New Nintendo 2DS LL in Japan, is the sixth and latest revision of the Nintendo 3DS line, mimicking the features of the New Nintendo 3DS with a sleeker design, and without 3D features. It was set to released on July 28, 2017. It is also the latest handheld model. Since the discontinuation of the original Nintendo 2DS in North America on February 8, 2020, the New 2DS XL is the only model in the 3DS family as well as the only handheld model to still be in production worldwide. Unlike the other models in the family which are in 3D, Nintendo does not make the Nintendo 2DS XL (Nintendo 2DS LL) and New Nintendo 2DS and instead only make the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 2DS XL.

Hardware Features

The new model has the same screen size (up to 82%) of the New Nintendo 3DS XL, but trims the outer edges making the device shorter in width and thickness maintained, as well as the screen lacking 3D capabilities.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL weighs exactily the same as the original Nintendo 2DS, being at 9.2 ounces. The inner camera is now on the hinge and there's a newly added C-Stick on the right side. amiibo functionality for figurines and cards is built-in the hardware.

The internal processors and such are exactly the same to the New Nintendo 3DS, making it powerful enough to play New 3DS exclusives like Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and the SNES Virtual Console, as well as faster loading speeds.
