New Nintendo 3DS XL - Samus Edition
New Nintendo 3DS XL offers new customisation options, new speed, new controls, new 3D viewing and a whole new experience!
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.
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.
This function allows the New Nintendo 3DS XL 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.
Metroid: Samus Returns + T-Shirt
This intense, side-scrolling action platformer is a great entry point into the Metroid franchise and perfect for returning fans as well; and it’s available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS family systems.
This intense, side-scrolling action platformer has been completely remade with engaging and immersive 3D visuals and a rich, atmospheric colour palette.
Classic Metroid II: Return of Samus gameplay is joined by a wealth of new content, including a set of brand new abilities that utilise a mysterious energy resource called "Aeion", a powerful melee counterattack and a 360-degree Free Aim Mode.
There are plenty of secrets to find, and if you uncover enough of them you may even start to unravel Planet SR388’s mysterious past.
Two new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Samus Aran and Metroid – will be released alongside the game. This game is also compatible with the Zero Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series.
