Well this is a surprise, on both fronts.
We've just gotten word on the local release date and pricing for the New 2DS XL. Brace yourself, there's good news ahead.
First, the release date. The New 2DS XL hits US stores on July 28, but will be available in Australia from June 15. That's a pretty big gap in our favour.
In addition, the pricing is pretty favourable. The New 2DS XL is $150 in the US (which translates to about $201 Australian given conversion rates) but the Australian RRP is $199.95. Considering shipping costs and GST, that's a surprisingly reasonable price point.
Good news all up.
