For instance as the name suggested, the 2DS XL doesn't have 3D stereoscopic screen just like the wedge shaped 2DS. But unlike the 2DS, it does have C-stick & ZL/ZR buttons, built-in NFC reader as well as microSDHC 4GB card just like New 3DS. Software that are exclusively for the New 3DS is now compatible with the 2DS XL. Dimension wise, it is tiny bit smaller than New 3DS XL. But one thing that New 3DS console that doesn't include is the AC power adapter like the 2DS.
