The New Nintendo 2DS XL handheld console is currently on sale at Walmart for just $130 in your choice of Black & Turquoise or White & Yellow. This deal saves you $20 off the regular price of this gaming system.Ordinarily, it will set you back $150, but you can get the Black and Turquoise model for $130 right now on Amazon if you act fast.
If you can live without the 3D functionality, this is the system to get. The only question is whether or not the savings is enough to tear you away from the New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition. At the moment, there’s a $30 price difference there, which is quite a bit of extra cash to spend on a cosmetic upgrade – cute though it may be.

If you’re excited for the recent games announced for Nintendo’s handheld consoles during its latest Nintendo Direct, grabbing a New Nintendo 2DS XL would be a great way to prepare for them. Luigi’s Mansion is one I think I’ll be picking up myself, and the way Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker integrates with Super Mario Odyssey is really cool and might be enough to warrant a pickup as well.

For a limited time, you can also save $10 on Pokemon Ultra Sun and grab it for just $30.
