The New Nintendo 2DS XL arrives first in Australia and New Zealand on June 15, then Japan on July 13, and United States and Canada on July 28.

Nintendo is introducing a new portable gaming system - Nintendo 2DS XL.

Meanwhile, Nintendo revealed today that it will release a new handheld, the New 2DS XL, in July.

For a better, multi-angled look at the New 2DS XL, check out Nintendo's official trailer for it below.

As mentioned earlier, the device has an 82 percent larger display compared to the 3DS XL. The 3DS XL comes with support for 3D video playback. Gamers who own games for previous 3DS systems will also be able to enjoy their games on the new 2DS XL. The Switch released two months ago and still suffers stock shortages, and now we're seeing a new handheld from Nintendo. Why? These new Nintendo games will offer fun new experiences for New Nintendo 2DS XL device owners, and for owners of any Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming device.

On to the New Nintendo 2DS XL. It will include the C-stick, the ZL and ZR buttons, and the NFC tech to ensure communication with the amiibo figures, Gematsu reported.

Older titles for 3DS continued to sell, with Mario Kart 7 moving 1.97 million, Pokemon ORAS 1.9 million, Pokemon X&Y 1.41 million, and New Super Mario Bros.

"This new addition to Nintendo's portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market", said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and chief operating office. Yeah, they have "New" in the actual product names.

The console will go on sale on July 28, but Nintendo is yet to confirm the price.

In total, the mobile gaming giant sold almost 2.74 million units of the Switch console globally in less than a month.

In the case of the New 2DS XL, that function doesn't exist.
