Here’s What’s Next for Nintendo in 2017

2017 has been super successful for Nintendo — and it’s not over. Here’s a look at what’s still to come.

Nintendo 2DS XL

The 2DS XL is a less expensive ($150) version of the 3DS XL ($200) portable console. The differences are subtle. Both have the same size screen and overall shape, but the 2DS XL is 26 percent lighter. And it offers a new ergonomic design so your hands wonโ€™t hurt as much if you play a lot. The sky blue buttons and highlights on the case make it look especially unique. The question to consider: Do you want to pay an extra $50 for the 3-D functionality of the 3DS?

Miitopia

This adventure game features Miis, the avatars in the world of Nintendo. As you round up a team of Mii characters, youโ€™ll be on your way to adventure to defeat the Dark Lord. Heโ€™s stolen the faces of many Miis in his angry quest to conquer the world. Along the way, youโ€™ll find hidden treasures, mini-games and amiibo functionality.

Super Mario Odyssey

The latest installment in the Mario franchise leaves Mushroom Kingdom behind, taking gamers to an open-world metropolis called New Donk City. Most of the gameplay will be familiar (expect to see Bowser, Princess Peach, Goombas and plenty of coins), but there are a few additions. For example, Mario sports a mysterious new hat that can be used as a flying boomerang-like weapon. This highly anticipated game will hit stores Oct. 27.
