3 New Nintendo 2DS XL Bundles Up For Pre-Order

Long live the 2DS.


The Nintendo 3DS family of systems just might live forever. The first iteration of the hardware debuted in 2011, and here we are seven years later with Nintendo releasing three new bundles containing a game that also launched seven years ago. The bundles come in various color designs of the New Nintendo 2DS XL with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed.

The bundles come in Black and Turquoise, Orange and White, and a new color combination: Purple and Silver. You can see how they look in the images below. They're selling for the suggested retail price of $150 and will be available on September 28.

Why buy a New 2DS XL in this day and age? Aside from how great the colors look, this iteration of the 3DS family of hardware is impeccable; you can read GameSpot's New Nintendo 2DS XL review for details. It also plays all Nintendo DS and 3DS games which, taken together, comprise one of the best libraries in gaming history.

And even though the Nintendo Switch has been around for over a year, 3DS games are still trickling out. The bizarre and delightful WarioWare Gold launched in early August. The GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion is getting a remake on the system in December. And the first-person RPG Etrian Odyssey Nexus will arrive early next year. Nor should you dismiss the bundled game Mario Kart 7, even though it's basically retro at this point.

So whether you're a 2DS/3DS collector or you've just decided to pick up the handheld console, these bundles give you more options.
