Ever since the Nintendo Switch was released, I’ve always thought the Nintendo 3DS/2DS was dead. It’s a thought that hasn’t really changed much as the only game I’ve bought recently is Metroid, but apparently Nintendo doesn’t care what I think! Yesterday via Twitter, they announced that a new Hylian Shield Edition 2DSXL is on the way. It will come pre-installed with A Link Between Worlds. If you haven’t played A Link Between Worlds, I would highly recommend it. It’s one of the best Zelda games I’ve played recently. I’ve actually played through it a total of 4 times! The new edition will be exclusively sold at GameStop for $159.99 and will be released on July 2nd. You can see Nintendo’s tweet below. Is this something you are going to buy, or is it too late in the system’s life cycle to warrant this kind of money? Let us know down in the comments.
