Slime Edition New Nintendo 2DS Announced

Nintendo has announced a cute New Nintendo 2DS XL that is metal-slime emblazoned.

Featured above, the new hardware – announced quickly after the reveal of the handheld last night – is launching alongside Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time in Japan, on July 29th.

The new hardware will set you back 22,480 yen (plus tax) and it comes with:

  • A Dragon Quest Liquid Metal Slime-themed New Nintendo 2DS XL handheld
  • A retail copy of Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time for the Nintendo 3DS, with a download code for first-run bonuses “Vest of Happiness” and “Upstart Vest”
  • A Liquid Metal Slime 3DS theme code

Pre-orders are currently up via Amazon Japan.

    Would buy this if it wasn’t region locked. Thankfully, it is.

    Kinda lame, would prefer just a regular Blue Slime or ‘Slime Collection’ rather than just metal.

    Oh well, content with my regular New 3DS.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It looks like the Slime is actually sticking out a bit, which is neat.

  • Michael Richardson

    Very cute. Too bad we got anything of the sort over here.

    Oh well, I’m perfectly happy with my New 3DS XL.
