Nintendo Switch Sales Top 2.74 Million In First Month

The Nintendo 2DS XL comes with slightly different price tags in different countries.

In a statement, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said, "This new addition to Nintendo's portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market".

Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo 3DS family of systems will soon add a new member, the New Nintendo 2DS XL.

If you don't care about the 3D functionality then this is probably the best 3DS for you. There's a C-stick, Amiibo support, Z-buttons and its compatible with all of the games exclusive to the New 3D XL.

In perhaps the most random gaming console launch of all time, Nintendo pulled out a new console out of nowhere and announced it for a July release.

It also has the same power capacity, yet weighs two ounces less, and sports a clamshell design in black and turquoise. As Nintendo points out in its press release, there's already a massive library of 1000+ games available for the 3DS family of consoles, but the New 2DS will launch alongside Hey!

Remember that the new Nintendo 2DS XL game system features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. It is just like the New Nintendo 3DS XL, but with some features removed. Even though the hybrid mobile/handheld Switch is available, Nintendo has been quick to reassure that the 3DS is far from dead. According to the company executive, there is a difference on the visual content of the two handheld console devices that caters to the needs of different players.

In Japan, the mobile gaming giant sold 600,000 units of the Switch console from March 3 through March 31, which marked the end of the company's fiscal quarter.
