Nintendo 2DS vs. 3DS and 3DS XL visual review

By Updated on

Nintendo handheld fans will love the choice they have these days with the 2DS, 3DS and 3DS XL, but how do they compare to each other? Thankfully, this question is being answered for us in a video below, and while it is not a detailed review, all the basics are covered to give us a general comparison.

The reviewer in the video is a favorite of ours, Blunty, and he seems extra pleased to have the Pokemon X and Y version of the Nintendo 3DS XL. That portable game console is blue in color and has silver and black decals that stick with the theme of the new Pokemon game.

Nintendo Australia has lent Blunty a 2DS so he can offer his readers a review, along with some great marketing as well – if the device gets a positive review that is. He was also sent a Nintendo 2DS carrying case, which isn’t all that exciting, but it is something he has to do.

With the 2DS, he first runs through the specs and features, which are on the back of the packaging. Blunty is not a fan of the red one because he believes the blue Nintendo 2DS looks far better thanks to the blue color on the sides, along with a black face.

We get to see the unboxing of the latest handheld from Nintendo, but what we really what to see is how it compares to the 3DS and 3DS XL, and so you will need to skip to 5:54 to see that. You will see them all lined up and it is only then that you get a true sense of how different they are.

A more complete Nintendo 2DS video review will be available in a few days, as Blunty gets to spend some time with the device. He wants time to put it through its paces so he can offer an informed opinion. If you cannot wait that long, then we have a first look hands-on with the 2DS for your viewing pleasure.
