New Nintendo 2DS and game review!
|a rather small box for a fantastic console!|
|my 'old' 3DS LL plus cutest pink charging cable <3|
|here the New Nintendo 2DS in stand-by mode|
|My 3DS case is from a little shop in Akihabara btw :)|
A big plus of the console is definitely the light weight as well as the big screen! The NN2DS is really easy to carry around, and the overall size reminds me of the New Nintendo 3DS. The touchpen is also to be drawn from the same location (on the down side of the console) which made me crazy at first because I was used to always draw it from the right side of the console. The package includes all needed charging cables of course. The console itself got gimmicks like an installed camera, although you can't quite say it's a decent one but it's enough if games use that function I'd say, and of course normal wi-fi and the more 3/2DS specifical streetpass wi-fi.
|there is an installed camera~|
|cartridges so tiny <3|
|bottom side - cartridge reader, on/off button and power/charge/battery indicators|
|upper side - two shoulder buttons on each side and the charging cable slot|
|Miitopia (release date: 28/07/17)|
So far so good! The first game I've tried was Hey! Pikmin.
|Hey! Pikmin (release date: 13/07/17)|
The second game I've tried was 'Ever Oasis'.
|Ever Oasis (release date: 23/06/17)|
|inside the Oasis - at night|
|the menu from which you can access stats, friends, items, weapons, etc.|
The third game I got my hands on was the new Miitopia!
|the evil face-robbing demons|
|you create your own Mii if you haven't one already! hello, it me :3|
|my life in a nutshell haha xD (it reads: Chou travels alone and without specific destination)|
|the first city plus weird looking NPCs|
|a cute illustration of the Miitopia world|
|you gotta choose your personality as well, I chose 'dreamer', obviously :D|
My favorite game of the three is definitely Ever Oasis! It was an amazing mixture of RPG with puzzle elements and action. I'll definitely play that one a lot! I think there's a limit as to how many hours you can enjoy such games but it's definitely a lot of fun and many hours of puzzle-action.
The NN2DS is an amazing console. Even though the Nintendo Switch has been finally released it's an overall other feeling to play with it. It never fails to entertain, and my beloved Streetpass is just a big plus! I love interacting with strangers who also own a 2/3DS console on all the little Streetpass games, like completing puzzles etc. - and it's so fun to see where the people you meet are coming from! I love these mini games so much. You should definitely try them if you haven't!
That they didn't implement 3D features didn't bother me at all. A lot of games are using the upper screen in a very clever way and I haven't turned on the 3D function a lot anyway because it's very exhausting for the eyes.
|completing puzzles, growing magical flowers, fishing legendary fish... Streetpass is the place to be <3|
All in all I'm super happy I got a chance to test this amazing console and the games! It made me want to play more with handhelds again, as it's really nice you can take your console with you and the 3DS as well as the 2DS have so many fun games to offer one just cannot say no! Also as you need to collect coins by walking and carrying the console with you and to meet others via Streetpass it's even more a reason to take it with you when you go outside. I remember my boyfriend hitting his upper thigh every morning to collect all the coins if he had a lazy day, lol. #lifehack
I hope you enjoyed my little review! Feel free to drop me messages and comments if there's anything you'd like to know about the console or games! <3
