About the Console

New Nintendo 3DS XL - Super Nintendo Entertainment System Edition

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

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 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.

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.

Generally all positive. It was a upgrade from an previous 3DS. I upgraded because I wanted to play the SNES virtual console games.

Only downside would be there still isn’t Bluetooth enabled for headphones.

Also I preordered the item a while ago when I heard they had the SNES 3DS available but since a week after I received my purchase they bundled it with a free case which I miss out on. I’m pretty gutted about that. 😔
