Another Game Console From Nintendo

Nintendo 2DS XL
It's been less than two months since game tech giant Nintendo released its massively successful Switch console, a home console/portable console hybrid that serves as the company's flagship system.

Last 27 April, Nintendo announced yet another new console: the "New 2DS XL," the fifth iteration in Nintendo's 3DS handheld line. It's essentially identical to the "New 3DS XL," which launched in 2015. The new handheld costs US$ 149.99 and is planned for launch on 28 July 2017.

It even looks the same, based on the photo above.

The main difference between this new console and the New 3DS XL that launched in 2015? Three dimensions!

That is literally the difference — there's a slider on the side of the upper 3DS screen that enables varying levels of three-dimensionality in games. The 3DS does this by using two screens layered on top of each other, and then the slider moves those screens closer together or further apart. It's an effect called "parallax" 3D.
