I’ve been wanting to get myself a new 2DS XL since I left my old DS back in my home country, but I resisted, thinking it wasn’t that necessary for now. But when Nintendo announced a limited edition design for Animal Crossing, I immediately thought that I couldn’t pass up on this offer! I mean, you get a gorgeous console and a preinstalled Animal Crossing for ¥16,463, why not?
I was too excited that I immediately put on the plastic cover and the screen protector on my DS when it arrived yesterday. If you’ve seen other unboxing videos you’ll notice the details put on the front cover of the DS. I especially love the embossed leaf as it adds a nice little touch. The color combinations are also beautiful. Purely aesthetic.
You get a preinstalled Animal Crossing Amiibo+ pack together with the console, so that’s what I’m running on the image above. Since I got mine in Japanese, everything is in Japanese … unfortunately. I’m pretty sure it’s got region lock just like all the previous DS consoles. So if you’re planning to get one, make sure to get one from your own region. So far I’ve seen it released in EU, Japan, and Korea. I’m not sure about other regions though.
The box also comes with AR cards (I don’t use them at all) and an Amiibo card of a random character in Animal Crossing. I got Pataya’s. I’ve never really used amiibo feature before so it doesn’t really matter to me haha.
If there was one thing that I didn’t like about this DS, it’s the gap between the frames around the battery light. I don’t know if you can notice it from my poor quality picture, though. It bugged me a bit when I noticed it at first, but I guess I can’t really do anything about it. I’ve seen other Youtube unboxing videos mentioning this part as well, so I guess it’s not only my problem lol.
That’s it for the brief post. What do you think of the new Animal Crossing edition DS? Are you planning to get one if it gets released in your region?
