We are a little over a month away from the launch of the New Nintendo 2DS XL in the US and Europe, but Australia is going to see the launch of Nintendo’s latest handheld iteration in just a few days. With the initial release so close, NintenDaan has posted an unboxing of the White/Orange version of the system on his YouTube Channel.

The system is sleek, no doubt about it. It’s got an incredibly small form factor, but once he opens up the system, you see that the screens take up a lot of the inner real estate. The Game Card slot is back on the bottom edge of the console, covered by a small flap, similar to the Switch’s Game Card slot. The door is rather wide, and appears to house the microSD card slot as well. The bottom edge is also home to a 3.5mm headphone jack, the stylus and the power button.

As for the right edge, it’s a clean slate; the left edge features the volume slider. The back edge of the system houses a charging port, moved back off to the side rather than dead center like the New 3DS. We also see the dual cameras, standard to every member of the 3DS family moved to the underside of the system rather than on the lid.

Also in the box are the standard manual and AR cards, and, surprisingly, a charger, something that every other member of the New 3DS family was not packaged with.

Are you excited for this new handheld from Nintendo? Do you hate it? Let us know down in the comments, or on Twitter and Facebook!
