Exclusive Hylian Shield Edition Nintendo 2DS XL Announced, Arriving This July

Earlier this year, Nintendo revealed an adorable yellow Pikachu edition of the New Nintendo 2DS XL for all to feast their eyes on, complete with the pocket monster’s quintessential red cheeks. It was a fantastic time to cater to those anticipating the arrival of the Detective Pikachu game as well. This time around, Nintendo has another surprise in store, announcing an exclusive Hylian Shield Edition of the handheld device coming soon.

Based on an iconic symbol of the Zelda franchise, the Hylian Shield is the design of Link’s trusty shield with the iconic design of the triforce above a skyloft, but not quite the Wingcrest yet. It arrives pre-loaded with the classic Super NES title, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Of course, the purchase of a Hylian Shield Edition of the handheld platform includes a stylus, AC adapter, 6 AR cards, the aforementioned game, and the device itself. Here’s the official description:

Step up to bigger screens and major features packed into a stylish, lightweight handheld. Enjoy built-in amiibo support, a fast processor, and playing Nintendo 3DS games in 2D. This New Nintendo 2DS XL system comes with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game pre-installed!”

The Hylian Shield Edition 2DS XL will be available beginning Monday, July 2nd for $159.99 exclusively at GameStop. Price may vary per region. What do you think of another handheld design?
