    Is it normal that Pressing up and right is a little clickier than pressing down and left ?
    Can you test this out ?

    I know all the buttons are mushy, but i feel a difference between up/right and down/left
    Its not a huge difference but there is something

    Obviously i do not wanna send my 2ds to Nintendo its 8.0 fw

    It's normal. I have a 2DS and it does this to me as well.

    So i went to a Game store to test a 2ds and it is clickier than my 2ds, well not clickier but the d pad is different than mine

    Is it because the 2ds i bought is New ? I didnt play a Game on it so far maybe it will Get better

    I have several 2ds's and the d-pad is very inconsistent. It's not always the up button either. One unit's lower diagonal is almost impossible to trigger. Yuck.
    Seems like the newer ones have better pressure consistency though.

    I See. It seems normal for the d-pad to be like that at first. But after playing for a while it feels more natural for me. Switching from clicky to squishy seems weird at first, but the buttons do become better after a while, i guess.
