The 2DS XL is very similar to the recently released 3DS XL but it is cheaper and does not use a 3-D screen.
The 2DS XL features the C-stick, Amiibo-compatible NFC reader, extra processing power, and a larger screen than the cheaper 2DS. It will be available in the US on July 28th for $149.99.
Here is Nintendo’s slick marketing video for the 2DS XL.
