Glass Screen Protector
Priced From $9USD
It’s very important that the first accessory you get is a glass screen protector because the touchscreen will get so much more abuse compared to most other portables. This is even more important if you have kids. Most kids don’t truly understand that when you’re using the stylus you can’t press down on the screen with too much pressure because it will ruin the touch screen. A glass screen protector will give you the best protection possible. It might be a few dollars more than the plastic screen protector but it’s better and worth it.
Priced From $8USD
One of the best ways to protect your Nintendo 2DS XL device is a hard shell case.

Cable Adaptor USB To DS
Priced From $5USD
This will come in handy to connect your 2DS XL to your battery pack. It’s cheap and a must have if you’re going to get a battery pack.
FastSnail Comfort Hand Grip
Priced From $10USD
A grip is something that’s a little different. The 2DS XL is one of the most comfortable handhelds Nintendo has ever made, but it’s designed for portability not for having the most comfortable grip as possible. That’s where the 2DS Grip attachment will come in handy. The 2DS Grip snaps right into place safely and securely so you won’t have to worry about your 2DS XL falling out. While it’s not going to be as portable anymore to fit in your pocket that easily, you’re going to have way more comfort levels playing games for long periods of time. It also has a built-in kickstand which gives you a way to display the system on a table or any flat surface. When you need to go on the move, the 2DS XL detaches very easily from the Grip and so you’re good to go.
Priced From $7USD
If you’ve never owned a Nintendo 3DS before or bought the attachment NFC reader for the original 3DS. This will be the first time you’re able to scan the Amiibo to be used in your 3DS games. If you’re not sure which games actually support them, all you need to do is to look on the top right corner on the outside of the case where you will see the Amiibo symbol which means it’s compatible.
The Amiibo will open up all kinds of additional content in games like Pikmin, SupeR Smash Brothers and much more. If you haven’t had the chance to use Amiibos before, it’s a great time to start.
Micro SD Card
Priced From $13USD
The Nintendo 2DS XL only has a 4GB SD card and if you’re going to be storing a lot of games and apps you’re going to run out of storage space very quickly. So you’re going to need a bigger SD card. Upgrading to a bigger Sd card will give you all the storage space you need and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you won’t worry about running out a storage space anytime soon.
