New Nintendo 3DS BLACK

New Nintendo 3DS offers new customisation options, new speed, new controls, new 3D viewing and a whole new experience!

Create your own look

The cover plates can be swapped to customise the exterior design of New Nintendo 3DS, and on the inside, HOME Menu themes let you add an extra level of personalisation to your system.

Expanded control options

ZL and ZR Buttons have been added next to the L and R Buttons, and a new C Stick can be found near the A, B, X and Y Buttons, expanding your control options. With these additions, surfing the internet on your handheld is easier than ever, and the functionality brought to you by the separate Circle Pad Pro attachment is integrated into the console.

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 3DS 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.

More comfortable gaming with the super-stable 3D function

This function allows the New Nintendo 3DS system to recognise your face using the inner camera, automatically adjusting the angle – even if you move a lot during gameplay – to give the best possible 3D experience.

Backwards compatible

You can play all your current Nintendo 3DS games on New Nintendo 3DS, and almost all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on a New Nintendo 3DS system in 2D.***

NFC function for amiibo compatible software

New Nintendo 3DS has an area on the bottom screen with NFC reading and writing functions built in, so you can enjoy playing with amiibo in compatible software. Details about compatible software planned for Nintendo 3DS will be announced in the future.

As the screens have the same resolution as the larger XL version the graphics are sharper on the smaller 3DS. The super stable 3D works more consistently too. And although it has a lower capacity battery because of it size battery life is on a par with the bigger machine again helped by the smaller screens it has to power. Interchangeable faceplates was a smart move too though I wish Nintendo would look at their classic console line up and release cover plates for nostalgia. As it is I have custom 3D printed plates instead of the Super Famicom, I played import games back in those days. Handhelds have always had a place in my heart from owning game and watches back in the very early 1980s to the original game boy and nearly every iteration since. Nintendo make the best handheld systems and I hope always will.
