New Nintendo 3DS XL Metallic Blue
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.
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.
