There’s more to celebrate this July than just sweet, sweet independence baby ??—and me aging another year, getting even closer to death. ?
On July 2, the new, special edition Nintendo 2DS XL Hylian Shield Edition system will launch exclusively at GameStop stores. With a suggested retail of $159.99, the system resembles Link’s iconic Hylian Shield from The Legend of Zelda series, and comes pre-loaded with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a sequel to the fan-fave Super NES game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this follow-up, Link must once again save the kingdom of Hyrule from an evil force by transforming into a living painting and crossing into a dark parallel world. Conquer puzzles, traps, and hidden rooms of deadly dungeons to save both worlds from certain doom.
New Nintendo 2DS XL plays the entire library of Nintendo 3DS games in 2-D. With two large screens and built-in amiibo support, it’s the ideal portable system for any type of gamer (yes, even you, Grandma!), especially ones looking to dive into The Legend of Zelda series for the first time.
