Nintendo Direct: Poké Ball Themed 2DS XL Announced

Just don’t confuse it with the Poké Ball zip purse…

Behold the magnificence of the Poké Ball Themed New Nintendo 2DS XL:

Nintendo of America said on twitter that the Poké Ball Edition New Nintendo 2DS XL would be launching on November 3. The price is yet to be confirmed. A follow-up tweet revealed a Super Mario Odyssey themed Nintendo Switch console, which is due to launch alongside the game on October 27.

The New Nintendo 2DS XL first came out in July.
