Due to the Nintendo Switch being out with such fantastic games, we’ve neglected our 3DS and 2DS family of consoles lately. Looking up some news about the handheld consoles, it’s a little surprising to see all of the new editions and covers for them.
Nintendo Everything just recently revealed that Target is taking pre-orders for a new Legend of Zelda 2DS Edition. A cheery green-and-yellow combination definitely reminds me of the colors of Link’s homeland, even if I prefer darker shades to represent Link.
Seeing the new edition takes me back to all of the other editions of the 3DS and 2DS consoles. There were several Pokemon-themed 3DS covers, along with other Legend of Zelda decals and, of course, the Super Mario Bros. There was also the beautiful Galaxy-themed 3DS that I was, honestly, once upon a time considering getting.
Of course, there wasn’t a reason as to why I would need to buy a special edition 3DS other than the cool designs. They’re extra ways to show off your love of the fandom and Nintendo’s products but, practically and financially, they weren’t needed.
Perhaps one day if I have money to burn, I’ll splurge on an extra console. For right now, though, I’m content with the basic designs that I have for my 3DS and 2DS systems. After all, they both play games well, and that’s the most important part of the systems, right?
Has there been a certain 3DS design that made you want to get an extra console? Can you think of a future design that you would like to see?
