10 Photos of Nintendo 2DS XL (Unboxing)

Here are some unboxing photos of Nintendo 2DS XL I ordered. Hope it helps you decide whether to get it!

Size of Nintendo 2DS XL

The Nintendo Switch 2DS XL has a width of around 3.2 inches (≈ 15.75 cm) when closed, with a length of 6.3 inches (≈ 16 cm). Its height is about 0.85 inches (≈ 2.15 cm).

The Console

I ordered the console from Amazon, and it came with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed. One thing about Nintendo 2DS XL is that it comes with a stylus on the back of the console, but it’s only around 2.8 inches long (≈ 7 cm). However, from my experience, the console works with other types of stylus (I ended up using my Microsoft Surface Pen which works pretty well too).

Check out the product page of the Nintendo 2DS XL in Amazon here:


There are three colors available:

  • Black with turquoise stripes
  • White with orange stripes
  • Purple with silver stripes

Nintendo 2DS XL Box Content

The content inside the box is pretty standard:

  • 1 Nintendo 2DS XL Console
  • 1 charger
  • An instruction manual

When I purchased it, the console comes with a 4-GB microSD card inserted. I found that with this storage space, I was only able to install 1 Pokémon game in it in addition to the pre-installed Mario Kart 7, so I ended up getting a SanDisk 64GB Ultra microSDXC Card instead. You may be able to install 2 or 3 games with a 4-GB memory card, although that would depend on the file sizes of the games.
