Update, 06.12.2019: If you want to give yourself or someone else a new New Nintendo 2DS XL for Christmas, you now have the ideal opportunity. The black and apple-green New 2DS XL with “Mario Kart 7” is currently available at Saturn and MediaMarkt for 99.99 euros (lowest price). This is another 10 euros less than on Black Friday and according to IDEALO the cheapest offer ever for the bundle.

New Nintendo 2DS XL: the price development of the handheld
The Nintendo 3DS originally appeared on the European market in March 2011. With 3DS XL, 2DS, New 3DS (XL) and ultimately New 2DS XL, various versions of the handheld with slightly different functionality have appeared over the years. However, all variants of the so-called 3DS family are able to play software titles from the 3DS and the predecessor Nintendo DS.
The New Nintendo 2DS XL is the latest model in the 3DS family and was released one month after the release of the Nintendo Switch in April 2017. When the New 2DS XL was launched, the suggested retail price was 159.99 euros. A short time later, a "street price" of around 150 euros settled. You can now get the handheld for around 120 euros - special editions and special color variations can be a little more expensive, however.
You can get your handheld between 130 and 140 euros at major providers such as Amazon, Media Markt or Saturn. If you want the absolute lowest price, you can find a practical overview of all color variants and the current best price of the New Nintendo 2DS XL on Idealo.

New Nintendo 2DS XL: Who is it worth buying?
If you only play the current blockbuster titles, you probably won't be able to do much with the somewhat outdated handheld. And even if there are hardly any new games for the 3DS family, the ideal time may have come for some to take a closer look at the handheld. Why this? Because there are a huge number of exclusive titles for the system that you won't find anywhere else. The games that use the two screens are difficult to replicate on other devices. And since interest in the handheld is declining, many games can be found very cheaply.
So if you haven't owned a 3DS yet, you can get the console and a large collection of 3DS and DS games for comparatively little money. And even for collectors who want to enjoy the large handheld game library for years to come, the time may soon come when you will no longer find a new New Nintendo 2DS XL on the store shelf. So if you still want to have a new handheld for the future behind you, you should maybe take the next action before the prices for the increasingly rare new devices shoot up.
