Nintendo Pushes Both Switch and New 2DS XL With New Summer Trailers

The Nintendo Switch is ready for the summer, and the New 2DS XL is still going to accompany many to the beach, as shown in new trailers.

Nintendo recently confirmed its intention to keep pushing both the Switch and the 3DS family to different segments of the audience, and today they released a trio of trailers.

The first video, which you can see below, advertises the Switch, while the other two push the latest entry in the 3DS family, the New 2DS XL.

Of course, the incoming summer is the central theme, which is pretty much a given considering Nintendo platforms’ trademark portability. It’ll certainly be interesting to see if the summer months will bring a spike in Switch sales, with people grabbing the console to play on planes, trains, or on the beach.

You can check the trailers out below.

If you still don’t have a Switch and want one to prepare for the upcoming games, you can purchase your unit on Amazon. If you prefer something cheaper, maybe for your kids (at least this is how Nintendo’s executives appear to be targeting the console), the New 2DS XL may be more to your taste.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
