2DS Trigger Grips
The Ultimate in Handheld Comfort
I had been eyeing this particular accessory in my recent visits to GameStop, as I had just purchased a Sea Green 2DS, but as Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is coming out in just a month, I felt that this accessory would be necessary for SSB's heavy gameplay, so I went ahead and picked one of these up. When I snapped it in and got a feel for it, it immediately reminded me of one of my favorite controllers: the Sega Dreamcast controller. From the stick/d-pad/button placement on the 2DS, to the handles and trigger placement of the grip, the 2DS now feels just like the Dreamcast controller, except even more comfortable due to the grip's smooth matte-textured rubber, and the 2DS's & grip's combined weight being less than a Wii U Pro, Xbox One, or PS4 controller, and will make for a very comfortable handheld Smash Bros. experience.
The 2DS and this accessory make for the very best setup you could possibly ask for in games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Mario Kart 7, and Smash Bros. 3D, as well as preventing cramps during extended play sessions.
Quintessential 2DS accessory
This is quite possibly the best addon for the 2DS so far. Extremely comfortable. Makes FPSs like Metroid Prime Hunters and Moon: Chronicles much more playable. The material is rubberized plasic, and doesn't slide around in the hand. It is very bulky and fits the hands nicely. The triggers themselves are placed in a comfortable position on the backside of the grip and depress straight down, as opposed to the actual 2DS's triggers which depress slightly inward. The 2DS clicks very solidly into the grip, and won't accidentally come out unless you really want it to. There is adequate space cut into the shape of the grip to get a finger into the stylus area, as well as all other areas. Other than making the system even less portable than it already was, there are really no downsides. I waited like 3 months for this thing to come out, and since nobody on the entire internet seems to have reviewed it, let it be known that this is probably the best peripheral you'll ever purchase for the 2DS. 10/10
Very comfortable but the right trigger sticks bad
I had to return the first trigger grip because the right trigger would not work. The second one worked okay for a while, but slowly became more inconsistent. Eventually, it would either not work at all or get stuck in the down position. I was using a brand new 2DS I had bought the same day. The grip is very comfortable, but makes playing Mario Kart 7 impossible.
Excellent, Exactly what I was looking for and more
Whoever designed this product @ PDP I give a standing ovation.
Ever since I purchased my 2DS several months ago I could not get over how uncomfortable it was for me to use for any extended period.
This fixed all my issues with the 2DS.
- The controller like sides gives you a much more comfortable grip on the 2DS and gives someone with adult sized hands much better access to the buttons.
- The designed triggers in the back to press the L & R buttons on top make the 2DS now the best handheld I've ever used.
I think Nintendo should bundle this product with every 2DS.
