About this deal

In North America, the New Nintendo 3DS XL was released on February 13, 2015, while the standard-sized New Nintendo 3DS was released later on September 25, 2015. Play Coins can then be used with compatible games and applications to acquire special content and a variety of other benefits. The Virtual Console service allows Nintendo 3DS owners to download and play games originally released for the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System, and exclusively for the New Nintendo 3DS models, Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

On September 20, 2012, the Nintendo 3DS XL launched in South Korea, in Silver + Black, Red + Black, and White color variations. This means that as you make subtle movements while playing your eyes don't have to constantly readjust to the shifting 3D. The improved technical specifications of the new systems were also noted, making the device's operating system more responsive and providing modest performance enhancements for existing games such as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The New Nintendo 3DS, which also has an XL variant, adds additional controls and improved functionality, and is able to play certain games not compatible with the previous models. Nintendo has noted this and included a secondary control pad here which, whilst not in the traditional control stick design, offers all the control of one.The graphics processor (GPU) is a PICA200 developed by Digital Media Professionals, running at 268 MHz. Some models are produced with an IPS screen for the upper display, but some still retain the old TN screen for upper display. Personalised advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. Through the Circle Pad Pro accessory the system has access to a second Circle Pad and trigger buttons (Z L, Z R). In Europe, the New Nintendo 3DS was first made available online on January 6, 2015 in a special white "Ambassador Edition" bundle, exclusive to Club Nintendo members, with a charging dock and two face plates included.

Nintendo Video content include: established series such as Oscar's Oasis and Shaun the Sheep (with fifteen exclusive episodes); [165] original series such as Dinosaur Office and BearShark by CollegeHumor; short films; movie trailers; and sports videos by Redbull and BSkyB.For their '3D Control Stick' Nintendo has decided to go for something much more akin to the 'control nub' on the PSP systems. A new feature known as "Super Stable 3D" improves the quality of the systems' autostereoscopic 3D effects by using a sensor to detect the angle that the player is viewing the screen at, and adjusting the effects to compensate. Other features of the 3DS include its StreetPass and SpotPass tag modes that are powered by Nintendo Network, augmented reality capabilities using its 3D cameras, and Virtual Console, which provides a method for users to download and play video games originally released for older video game systems. For the first time, 3D is actually desirable, rather than a poorly implemented add-on designed to cash in on a craze that never quite managed to catch on -- and it gives the 3DS, with its lower-level graphics quality, a hardware hook in the handheld market. However, Mii created on Nintendo 3DS systems cannot be exported back to a Wii due to the addition of character parts in Mii Maker not present on the Wii's Mii Channel.

In a similar manner of the Nintendo DSi XL to the Nintendo DSi, it features a larger screen as well as a greater overall size than the original Nintendo 3DS model.Only the XL version was made available in North America at launch, [135] [136] though the smaller model was later released in a series of limited edition bundles. This restriction, however, is not applied when exporting a Mii from a Nintendo 3DS to a Wii U system. The XL variant does not allow use of these plates, instead having a couple of fixed metallic designs. The new models feature a more powerful processor, face tracking for improved 3D viewing angles, additional ZL/ZR shoulder buttons and a new "C-Stick" pointing stick that are comparable to and backward compatible with games that support the Circle Pad Pro, colored face buttons inspired by those of Super NES controllers, automatic brightness adjustment, microSD storage, larger batteries, and integrated near-field communications support for use with Amiibo products.
