BEST New 2DS XL Accessories!

BEST New 2DS XL Accessories!

(static) – The new 2DS XL has
officially arrived in the U.S. And whether it’s your first
3DS system or you’re upgrading from previous one, chances
are there’s gonna be some accessories you wanna grab to get the most out of your system. So, let’s go over the best
accessories for the 2DS XL. First off is something
that I’ve talked about a thousand times before, but
I will keep talking about every time we do a video like this because it’s that important. Screen protectors. Now, especially in the case
of the 3DS or 2DS XL here, it’s really important to have one of these because that touch screen is getting so much more use compared
to most other portables. Especially if you have kids. I cannot list how many
times I’ve seen a DS with a ruined touch screen
because a kid doesn’t understand you’re not
supposed to be pressing down with the stylus with
the force of a meteor. (explosion) Now, you can get just regular
plastic screen protectors for just five or six
bucks, but honestly I think it’s worth upgrading just
for a few dollars more to get a glass one. It’s gonna give you the
best protection possible. Some of the plastic ones are
just the tiniest bit opaque, which can ruin the screen clarity, so this is gonna avoid that as well and you’re much, much less
likely to get any kind of air bubbles when you’re applying it. Next is another form
of important protection and that is a carrying case. Now, the 2DS XL, thanks
to it’s clamshell design compared to the original
2DS, can fit in your pocket pretty comfortably, but at the same time, if you want to carry around
things like your AC adapter or game cases, these are
gonna come really handy. Now, if you look up on
Amazon, you’re gonna see a ton of these listed with all kinds of different brand names attached and it can get a little
difficult to kind of sort through which ones are good, which are bad. For example, this Keten
one here is currently the top seller and it’s fine. It’s perfectly okay. It’s inexpensive. It’s gonna cover all your base needs, but honestly not my favorite choice. Some of it just feels kind of cheap design and it’s only gonna carry
eight games at once. On the other hand, for
just a few dollars more, you can grab this case,
which carries up to 24 games. Another important thing too
for the 2DS specifically, is the fact that a lot of
these cases also come with a place to carry an extra
stylus, which normally, isn’t a huge necessity,
but considering the one that the 2DS carries, it is super tiny. This is really handy to have now. Now that we’ve got the usual
suspects out of the way, let’s talk about something
a little different. A grip for your 2DS. Now, I would argue that
out of all the different designs Nintendo has had for the 3DS, the 2DS XL is one of the most comfortable, but it’s still designed for portability. Not necessarily having the
most comfortable grip possible. That’s why an attachment like this is gonna come in handy. The 2DS snaps in place nice and securely. It’s not gonna fall out or anything and while it’s not exactly
as portable anymore, it’s not gonna fit in your pocket easily, you’re gonna have way more comfort levels playing the game over
long periods of time. And when you need to go on the move, just take them apart
and you’re good to go. And as you may have noticed
when I picked it up, it also has a built-in kick stand. Giving you a way to display the system on a tabletop or any other flat surface. And then we have, of course, amiibo! Now, are these Nintendo’s
thinly veiled attempt to sell us overpriced DLC in the form of addicting little collectables? Yes. Is this a marketing strategy that works? Definitely yes. Now, if you never owned a new 3DS before or you never bought the
attachment NFC reader for the original 3DS, this
is gonna be the first time you can actually scan these things to use in your 3DS games. And if you’re not sure which
games actually support them, all you gotta do is look
at the case right here. On the top corner will it
have the amiibo symbol. This opens up all kinds
of additional content in games like Fire Emblem,
Super Smash Brothers or more recently, Hey! Pikman. So, if you never got the
chance to actually use amiibos before, definitely jump on it now. Now, we live in a day and
age where people carry all kinds of different
portable electronics and if you’re a Nintendo
fan, chances are you might actually have two different
portable gaming systems and as a result something that’s becoming more and more handy to have
on hand is a battery bank. Now, this is one I’ve talked about before. It’s one of the best ones
that works with the Switch. Comes from Anker and so it’s
a good one to have on hand if you’re gonna have
that along with the DS. Obviously the DS’s battery
life is a little better, but you’re still gonna
run into those times where it’s on low battery and
you need that extra charge. Now, some of you might be wondering, how exactly am I gonna
charge my DS with this because the charger that comes with it is just a straight up AC adapter. Well that’s where this comes in handy. You can buy cable adapters that are USB to DS for super cheap. This is a four foot one
that cost very little for a couple bucks more, you
can get a ten foot long one. If you need the extra reach, but yeah. Basically a necessity at this point. So, there you have all
the accessories you need to grab for your brand new 2DS XL. I’m gonna have everything
linked down below in the description along
with a couple alternative choices as well. Now, we’ll see you guys next time.

  1. You think because I can afford a 2ds xl, I can afford a 120 dollar battery bank, no I'll stop with my 15 dollar one. Thanks.

  2. Still messes with my head the fact some people still don't keep power banks with them, my 20,000 mah one from aukey is a beast and my smaller one gets me through the days when I don't have my bag, how did we survive without these things?

  3. I've had my 3DS XL now since 2012, and I'm really debating whether I should upgrade to the N2DSXL! I basically never use the 3D function, so I believe it would be better for me to get this version. These were some great accessories! Will definitely pick several of these up, if I buy a new system.

  4. I dont have 24 games lol xD I have exactly 8 so a 8 slot case would work perfectly
    The extra stylus is awesome tho

  5. I hear this a lot and it drives me bonkers. Addicting is just not a word. The one you’re looking for is: Addictive.

  6. Hey, does anyone know if a Nintendo DS Lite Stylus will work with the 2DS XL? cuz i heard the 2DS XL's stylus is REALLLLLLLLLLLY small.

  7. Screen protector feels like overkill to me. No one touches my systems.
    The cases are great. May pick one up.
    The grip is what I’ve been looking for for my shiny hunting afternoons.
    About the power bank, I have one but the cable is lightning/micro usb only. Did Nintendo really had to make it a proprietary port?
    I need a usb-3ds cable now… 😒

  8. These are really helpful for me I just wanna know if you need to get a 3ds controller thing, cause for Christmas I got a 3ds XL so I just need some things about 3ds XL's if that's possible. 😁😀

  9. My last Nintendo was Nintendo dsi and my new one is……………… nothing but on my birthday I’m gonna get a Nintendo 2ds xl not switch cuz too much mulah

  10. The problem with YouTube is the majority of the people that watch it are just like the people who make videos they're idiots the people who made videos use any reason to make a video because they want to monetize it to put a little money in their pocket there for Content sacrifice dramatically YouTube is a cesspool of fucking shit you're a consumer idiot that buys Nintendo products if you were smart you would be doing videos about how there are so many other products centers so far superior to name brand consumer consoles but you got your head up your ass and you're just in it to rape people so fuck you

  11. Knight And SpaceShip

    2:02 but that's useless since it's gonna cover up the speakers because ya know the new 2DS xl has its Fucking speaker below.


    Hi! I have the original 3ds (from when it first came out) and I'm looking to upgrade. Is the 2ds xl the way to go?

  13. Here is all the accessories I have
    That’s it..
    But here are the games I have
    This is ordered by last played
    Pokemon Omega Ruby
    Super Smash Bros
    Fire Emblem Fates
    Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Mario Kart 7

  14. I have the 2ds and the 2ds grip stand thing I love the grip stand because it amazing when ur playing games like Mario kart 7 or super smash bros

  15. the orzly case is the best imo, it came with earphones, car charger, screen protection, and a clear ds shell, and really cheap like 18$

  16. I went from DSi to another DSi to replace it since it broke and then a DS lite (I found a cheap one and it worked well) then I got a 2DS and I'm getting a 2DS xl tomorrow

  17. dont get a screen protector its a waste the way a ds is built your screen will be the least likely to be damaged if its dropped etc. if you have kids consider it but back when the dsi came out when i was like 9 i ripped off my screen protector after playing a game out of frustration because they were annoying to deal with while playing your kids will probably do the same as well

  18. I have a $350 battery with AC plugs and it's so powerful it runs my gaming laptop for an extra two hours on very demanding games so I'm covered there

  19. I have a switch and I know that they are MEANT to be easy to travel with but they are not and every two days you need an update which involves wifi and you can’t play without which is why I’m coming for the 2ds xl

  20. Boi I remember watching a bunch of videos for the new 2ds xl until I got it and I still play it to death it's been a year
