New Nintendo 2DS XL Animal Crossing Edition with Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo

Available 20/07/2018

This special edition hardware bundle contains a New Nintendo 2DS XL Animal Crossing Edition system with a digital copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo pre-installed on a 4GB microSD card, plus a Nintendo 3DS AC adapter.

I’m really really really really really (many “really’s” later) stuck between the Animal Crossing one and the Minecraft one. I like them both but the problem with the Minecraft one is the association with creeper= child. And with the AC one, I already have the game and don’t want to lose what I have done on it. I guess I would just sell it though.

I would need more pictures of the Minecraft one though and there’s not any more at the moment. If it has a black inside bit then it’s a winner. If not, I’d be going with AC. Probably AC anyway though.

On a side note, I’m glad I held back on the Pokémon one. I wasn’t 100% sure about it so left it, but

Look at this GameStop exclusive one though released yesterday

Really want a new 3ds or compatible unit. Wanted the SNES version really. The MARIO Kart one is ok... but a bit plain.

Hmmm.... I hate Nintendo have added VC games only compatible with new units.
