Achieve total immersion with dual large screens with the 2DS XL Handheld Gaming System from Nintendo.
The Nintendo 2DS XL is compatible with all 3DS and eShop games as well as most DS and DSi games. Designed for the family, the Nintendo 2DS XL has StreetPass, SpotPass, wireless connectivity, and even access to the Miiverse online community.
Built-in amiibo Support
Tap an amiibo figure to the near-field communication (NFC) reader on the lower screen to enjoy amiibo features in compatible games. Get bonus items and content, customize your character, and more when you use amiibo figures (like Mario) with amiibo-compatible games.
The Nintendo 2DS XL system can take photos in 3D, thanks to the two outward-facing lenses on the lower half of the system. Have fun with filters like the Merge lens, or even use the system's AR technology and included AR Cards to make Mii characters and Nintendo heroes appear in the real world with you. You can share your 3D photos with others by submitting them to the Nintendo 3DS
Photo Showcase. Browse featured galleries or submit your own masterpiece to the Showcase. In a creative mood? You can record your own 3D videos, or 3D stop-motion animation. Please note that you cannot view them in 3D on your 2DS XL.
Motion Sensor & Gyro Sensor
Portable play controls allow for unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.
On the Nintendo 2DS XL, a widescreen display on the top screen shows an 800 x 240 pixel resolution, allocating 400 pixels for each eye to create the 3D effect. The bottom LCD touch screen operates at a 320 x 240 resolution. Both screens are capable of displaying a brilliant 16.77 million colors.
SD Memory Card Included
The Nintendo 2DS XL comes packed with a 4GB SD memory card. You can use this SD memory card to store your 3D photos, sound recordings created on the system, and music from your PC. You can also use it to store games downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 2DS XL features SDHC card compatibility to increase your storage space even further.
Almost all existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in 2D. With backward compatibility, your existing portable games look and play just as well. If you've downloaded Nintendo DSiWare games and applications on your Nintendo DSi system, you can transfer most of those games to the Nintendo 2DS XL. You can also transfer downloaded software, sounds, and images between systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. Some games cannot be transferred. See the full list on Nintendo's official website.
Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games will be displayed in 2D graphics.

The Activity Log tracks both your game play activity, noting which games you've played and how long you've played them, as well as your physical activity, counting every step you take while carrying your system.
