Nintendo Unveils New 2DS XL Models, Including A Pokéball Version

During today’s lengthy Nintendo Direct video presentation, the focus shifted away from games for a few seconds to introduce new hardware. Among those items are two new versions of the Nintendo 2DS XL.

People who want to play the forthcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon  games in style can pick up a Pokéball-themed Nintendo 2DS XL on November 3. This model features the iconic red and white tones of the Pokémon-catching device.

If you want something a little more subdued (or perhaps in the Halloween or pumpkin spice spirit), Nintendo is localizing Europe’s popular orange and white Nintendo 2DS XL on October 6.

No prices were given for either version, but we expect they’ll fall in line with the $149.99 price point of existing models currently on retail shelves.
