I've been wanting to upgrade to a 2DS XL from my standard 3DS (got the Zelda 25th Anniversary one) just because the original 3DS feels way too small in my hands. Hopefully the color scheme on the inside is nice since I may finally bite on this version.

 

Anyway, how fast do these limited runs like the Poke Ball and Pikachu editions sell out? Is there a way to stack even a slight discount on to them down the line?

Nope, @12.99 is cheapest shipping.

Pikachu one is still in stock and Poke Ball took a long time to sell out. Literally zero chance for slight discount - if there is one, maybe holiday season. I like the design, think I'll pick one up myself.

I'd probably bite if it was a regular 2DS shaped like a Hylian shield on the back.

wonder if it will be a print, or have some raised texture to the shield.  Probably a print..

It's a shame that they're including and locking pre-installed ALBW into a 2DS system; this was the only 3DS game that ever had reviewers actually recommending and enjoying using the 3D mode for certain aspects of the game.

Personally, ALBW was the only 3DS game I've ever tolerated the 3D on for more than a few minutes before slamming down the 3D slider to off.


Hopefully the color scheme on the inside is nice


It's all solid blue with gray buttons. You can see it at Polygon.

That's actually not ugly. Would buy if they had 3dsxl version.

I hope that it's not just a print, but that parts of the shield actually stick out. At this point, I'm desperate for any little thing to be different to make the purchase more appealing. I mean, I'm buying the bastard either way, but I'd rather be happier about doing so. Haha

Mario 3D Land was pretty great in 3D. For me, it made the platforming easier and more fun. I'd put ALBW in second place though. Like you, I ignored it for everything else.

The question is, is it more durable than regular 2DS'?

I love this one, but I hate that the design is upside down on every one of the special editions when they're open.

Already have the Pokeball 2DS version, but this one is so much nicer, awwww. I rarely use the 3D option on my 3DSXL anyways

Oooh... I want to try that. I was so overwhelmed with games being a later adopter that I only played M3DL for about 10 minutes before getting sucked into ALBW and forgot to go back. I can imagine it being good with 3D.

I came into this thread expecting to see Zelda rolling in a pile of Rupees. Disappointed.

Damn it. I'm out. Was hoping it would be a silver interior with red and blue buttons. Blue isn't my favorite color so I'm fine with just waiting for a sale on the orange and white 2DS XL. :(

I hate GameStop and I hate that it gets exclusives, I hate their shipping costs, I hate their return policy (they recently shipped me an opened "new" item and told me they couldn't accept a return of an opened item).

 

But ultimately, I hate myself, because I have a complete 2DS/3DS collection and just ordered this one, $20 shipping and all.

I want it.

I need it.

I must have it!

 

 

Apart from seeing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, this just brushed aside everything I was hoping to get this year.

In-store preorder will be a good option if I can get a spare hour on a weekend. Not enough time on weekdays due to baby stuff / endless nanny interviews.

1. Schedule nanny interviews at local GameStop.

2. Hire the only nanny that would actually meet you at a GameStop

3. ?????

4. Profit?

Bonus points go to nannies who refuse to go to GameStop.
