Enhanced features and processing power

Improved CPU performance allows for faster loading of applications such as Miiverse, and faster speeds for downloading software.* Upgraded camera functionality lets you take better pictures under dim lighting conditions, and with New Nintendo 2DS XL you can transfer data directly to and from your PC via Wireless LAN, too! You can enjoy videos online** using the Internet Browser installed on the console, plus automatic brightness adjustment optimises the screen to offer the best view for your current surroundings.

Backwards compatible

All Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS software can be played on New Nintendo 2DS XL, including New Nintendo 3DS software, in 2D. Software from other regions cannot be used. It is not possible to play Nintendo DS games that require accessories.

NFC function for amiibo compatible software

Near-field communication (NFC) is built into the lower screen. If you touch an amiibo (sold separately) against it while enjoying compatible software, you can read and write data on the amiibo and enhance your games in surprising new ways!
