Nintendo of America recently announced the latest color addition to the 2DS family, the New Nintendo 2DS XL Purple + Silver. Releasing September 28, this new model features the same design and functionality as the previous New Nintendo 2DS XL and also comes bundled with a pre-installed copy of Mario Kart 7.
This should come as no surprise to fans, as Nintendo always introduces new colors and SKUs to their handhelds. The new color comes just in time for an early holiday push that will lead into other previously announced “Starter Packs” for Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Odyssey.
While I am in love with the New 2DS XL design and colors, I can’t justify getting rid of my New Nintendo 3DS XL Majora’s Mask Limited Edition. However, if Nintendo feels like making some purple-and-silver Joy-Cons, I wouldn’t be able to pass on those.
Starting September 28, all New Nintendo 2DS XLs will come with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed, so if the new design isn’t your thing, you can pick up black/turquoise or white/orange designs and still get a copy of Mario Kart 7.
