    How is the 2DS doing?

    Does anyone know how well the 2DS is performing?
    Last I heard from it was that it had moved 2.1m consoles, and that was back in february.
    I can't see it in any sales charts.

    I'm just curious to see how well it's doing.
    Also since i just bought a 2DS what games would you recommend? (Also original DS games)

    It's doing okay but not within Nintendo's expectations I guess.

    Yo, get:

    Kid Icarus Uprising
    Luigis mansion dark moon
    Mario 3d land
    Professor Layton games
    Mario Kart 7

    There are a bunch more, but those are the ones I remember.

    Also, if you're getting smash and want to get you're arse kicked add me.

    Alrightie I'll look into that, seems like some good titles there.
    And I do enjoy me some Smash bros... but don't like getting my arse kicked.
    Smash I'm primarily going to get on the "U" but maybe both? =)

    It Don't matter, I'll be getting it on both systems, so I'll kick your arse anyway. Lol

    Edit: I also recommend you get A link between worlds, cave story 3d, nanostray (ds)

    I'm sure the 2DS is doing good. I'm perfectly happy with my 3DSXL. I'll be even more happy once Smash comes out, and I'm willing to give Code Name S.T.E.A.M a look. (Bet y'all forgot about that)

    Steamworld Dig was very cool. Contra 4, Crush 3d, Shinobi, Mario Hoops, Rusty Slugger, Moon, Dementium 1&2, Plants v Zombies, any of the Castlevania games. Also Pilotwings has a lot more to it than initially appears. Did anyone mention Fire Emblem? There are also numerous collection carts like Namco Arcade Hits, Atari Mega Hits, Sonic Collection. etc. But Donkey Kong '94 is simply a must buy. It's the original DK with better controls, new mechanics like ropes, keys, switches, etc. AND something like 100 levels.

    Kid Icarus 2, Bionic Commando, and Metroid 2 are all great also.

    If I may make a VC recommendation, I say get Mole Mania. It's an action puzzler similar to Adventures of Lolo. It's more or less Miyamoto's lost masterpiece.

    I think that coming up with the 2DS XL was a perfect idea. I didn’t need the 3D effect anyways, and I think it was long overdue. Side note, I realllyyy want the Hylian Shield 2DS that releases soon.

    It's doing better than the standard 3DS models currently so I assume it's doing well

    Well the *NEW* 3DS is the standard 3DS now, there's barely if any "standard" 3DS left out on the market.
    But just like with the 3DS there's two models of the 2DS. One that's a square piece of toast, more closely related to the first models of the 3DS and then there's the sleek 2DS XL which is based on the newer 3DS models with the [slightly] improved specs

    Tons of my nieces and nephews are all buying the 2DS. A few of the kids in the same family saved up for a Switch and decided they’d all rather have their own 2DS. So from this evidence alone I think most folks would rather get a 2DS than a Switch.

    But all of those you mentioned are children, which is exactly what the 2DS is marketed for.
    College kids and adults are more the people that buy a Switch.
