April 27 - Nintendo Unveiled a Yet Another New Console.
The 2DS XL is essentially an ideal version of the 3DS, with none of the 3D functionality which most games don’t even use and a larger form factor which actually fits human sized hands. And with a fairly large library of games already available in the 3DS catalog it seems like a smart move to refresh the platform’s look. It remains to be seen, of course, if any developers will bother making new games for this device now that the Switch is in the wild so the new device could be a bit hamstrung by competition from the new kid on the block.
So that about does it for this week's news. Let's see what the Something Wicked team has been up to this week.
This last one isn't a SWS production per se but Alex and yours truly played a bunch of board games on camera with the Extra Life Los Angeles guild, so you can check that out here..
