Gaming Device May 25, 2018 Vikram Khajuria
After making a booming debut of “Switch,” Nintendo extended the handheld devices family by launching the upgraded 2DS XL. The suffix “XL” says it all. The new device sports refurbished processor, C-Stick catalog, and two more keys. The principal motive of adding these features are to enable 2DS XL to support all the new games designed to work with Switch. The move of launching this device may have come as a surprise to many, but Nintendo planned the welcome edition as a measure to keep afloat in the mid-segment market of handheld gadgets. 2DS XL is the best model in Nintendo efforts to dominate gaming consoles arena.
If gaming screen makes difference to you, the gadget is for you.
The new 2DS XL comes in a crisp design and vibrant color which makes it an attractive gadget. And why not? If your target audience is young generation then you need to add an extra bit of everything.
Nintendo DS model offers 4.18” and 4.88” screen sizes on this model and the best part is that it comes wrapped in glossy touch and looks much better than New 3DS. The screen size of has XL has been expanded by almost 82 percent, which certainly pushes it ahead of its competitors. Other then this, Nintendo hasn’t made any major changes in terms of brightness or responsiveness in the display. It’s not about just the screen size, the company has also added new hardware of the new gadget. 2DS XL is powered by the same chipset found that is found on the New 3DS and New 3DS XL.
Earlier the camera was fixed at the top lid of 2DS, but this time Nintendo has placed it bottom of the console. The microSD slot and game cartridge slot has been clubbed on the front side and to protect from any unintended damage, the slots are covered by a flap. The above-mentioned modifications are already a part of New 3DS and New 3DS XL gaming consoles. Unlike its previous sibling, the new 2DS XL supports 3D experience for the users, but with the condition of wearing 3D glasses.
The most perplexing change I found on this device is the stylus size. Nintendo reshuffle might have come in order to suit the need of children, but what is an adult wants to use it? To me, this seems to a grey area. The next eerie update is the placement of the speakers. Nintendo 2DS XL has its speakers on the bottom of the console which blocks the sound if the device is held in the hands. The company needs to come up with something that can subdue such issues.
XL supports games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Pushmo, and Crashmo, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Super Mario 3D Land, and many more. This definitely makes it deal-breaker. Not to miss is the NFC feature that would let you make most of the Amiibo figurines with compatible titles.
On the battery front, Nintendo hasn’t added enough power to this device. Who wants to plug-in their gaming console again and again? I hope, the next gadget will be packed with some decent battery back-up.
The gadget is a strong addition to Nintendo’s handheld consoles and the best value for money. The DS units have out-classed Sony’s PlayStation 2 in terms of unit sales, which is obviously a great feat in itself. In simple words, Nintendo 2DS XL catch-up everything that the higher priced 3DS XL propounds.
What else to desire, if you get a chance to grab a gaming device for well under the budget and that too with vivid features. Go get it before you cut a sorry figure.
Where to buy: MSRP $149.00
