This post is a paid partnership with Nintendo but all opinions are my own.
As a parent, it is my job to not only know what my kids are up to but to provide them with the best options that hone their interests. That is the main reason I really like the New Nintendo 2DS XL systems. With games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, my kids get the fun and excitement of solving problems, playing with characters they love and levels of challenge.
Nintendo has been around for a while. Their systems just get better and better with every new release. My kids have had variations over the years and always are thrilled to play on them. They are affordable and reliable, even for little kids! The Nintendo 3DS family of systems has a variety of price points starting with the Nintendo 2DS bundle with the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game pre-installed at MSRP of $79.99, and MSRP of $149.99 for the New Nintendo 2DS XL bundle with the Mario Kart 7 game pre-installed. For those of us on a budget, it is easy to find something that fits with our funds.
With more than 1,000 games available, I can find affordable games that each kid will love.
I was able to share the fun and excitement of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D on my New Nintendo 2DS XL thanks to the Nintendo Selects line, which includes a great variety of games priced at just $19.99 MSRP each. Megan, my 9 year old, picked up The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and immediately was enthralled. She LOVED that you could merge into walls and that the touch screen made it easier to drag items around and explore the worlds!
When it was Sarah’s turn, she put in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Over the mountains and through the dungeons she went, battling along the way to defeat Ganon. She showed me the interactive experience and chatted happily as she described the colorful and fun screens that she passed in and out of.
It’s important for me to know where and how my kids spend their time. I like that the New Nintendo 2DS XL system allows them to play and explore different worlds without worry. I also like that the system has Parental Controls settings.
When was the last time you looked at Nintendo’s bundles for your family? You may be surprised at the amazing systems and games they have too!
New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS play Nintendo 3DS games in 2D only.
