Nintendo created the first 2DS as an inexpensive entry-level version of the popular 3DS handheld system, and they've just refreshed the 2DS with a redesign that's very 3DS-looking.
The New Nintendo 2DS XL from Nintendo is the second version of Nintendo's 2DS line of handheld game systems. This new entry to the DS handheld gaming line replaces the first Nintendo 2DS's slightly odd, slate design with a clamshell case design, which is what the more advanced Nintendo 3DS case design looks like.
Essentially, the New Nintendo 2DS XL does everything that the 3DS game system does, and features several improvements over the first Nintendo 2DS, including an updated processor, additional controls, and Amiibo support. The main difference between the New 2DS Xl and the 3DS systems is the fact that the 2DS handhelds can not display games in 3D (3-dimension). Instead, the New 2DS XL (and the original 2DS) displays all the games designed for 3D, in 2D.
The New 2DS XL comes loaded with multiple software apps, including a camera, Mii maker and the popular Mii Plaza that allows people to interact with other 2DS & 3DS users when they pass each other on the street in the real world.
The New Nintendo 2DS XL also includes AR (Augmented Reality) games that utilize the device's camera and screen to give the appearance of a digital item, in your real world environment. The system comes with AR cards that unlock games utilizing the handheld's camera and augmented reality gaming.
