Nintendo just announced that the New Nintendo 2ds XL will be available this July and will come in a stylish black/turquoise color.

Nintendo has been on somewhat of a run recently, with the Nintendo Switch proving incredibly popular and launch title Zelda: Breath of the Wild smashing records. Nintendo is releasing a handful of first party titles with third-party titles coming later in the year. It has taken features from both the New 3DS and original 2DS in order to create a fascinating way to play on the go. Moreover, they chose a handsome clamshell design, plus they balance greatly both performance and price.

Weirdly, it has also been revealed that Nintendo sold 2.76 million copies of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch.

Basically it's the exact same as the New Nintendo 3DS minus the actual 3D, which a large portion of gamers probably turn off anyway.

Nintendo has announced a new video game system out of the blue - the Nintendo 2DS XL.

Much like the New 3DS, the New 2DS XL will support each and every 3DS game on the market. Nintendo sold 13.56 million Wii U consoles since its launch in November 2012, with just 760,000 sales in the previous year.

Nintendo has revealed the New Nintendo 2DS XL, which will arrive in Australia/NZ on June 15 and the USA on July 28.

Nintendo, which has been enjoying better-than-expected success with its Switch console, will launch the 2DS XL while the other Nintendo handhelds remain on store shelves.

Nintendo shared their latest earnings report for fiscal year ended March 31, with plenty to show for their recent performance.

In the fiscal year that ended in March, Nintendo's profit jumped more than six times from the previous fiscal year to 102.6 billion yen ($924 million), up from 16.5 billion yen.
