DESCRIPTION

What's New?

Face Tracking 3D

Using the inner camera, face tracking 3D provides an improved 3D gaming experience from a wider range of viewing angles compared to Nintendo 3DS. The New Nintendo 3DS XL system automatically adjusts the 3D "sweet spot" based on the location of the user's face.

New Controls

The C Stick opens a new world to your games. With certain games, you can freely control the in-game camera to get a new point of view. And, new ZL and ZR buttons give you more options than ever.

Built-in amiibo Support

Tap an amiibo figure to the near-field communication (NFC) reader on the lower screen to enjoy amiibo features in compatible games. Get bonus items and content, customize your character, and more when you use amiibo figures (like Mario!) with amiibo-compatible games.

*amiibo figures sold seperately

Faster Processing Power

Improved processing power allows for faster loading of applications, such as Miiverse and games. Plus the improved CPU performance allows you to enjoy faster speeds for downloading software*.

*Download speeds may vary depending on internet connection.

Play Even More Games

You can still play all Nintendo 3DS games and nearly all games from previous systems such as Nintendo DS and DSi. And, some future titles will be exclusively playable on the New Nintendo 3DS XL.

Easy Data Sharing

You can transfer your photos, music, and other files between a PC and your system's microSDHC*** card via a wireless network. No need to remove the microSDHC card!

***Please note that microSDHC card data management is only compatible with Windows; not compatible with iOS (MAC) and Linux operating systems.

Ready to Upgrade

Taking your games with you is a snap. You can use local wireless to transfer all your data or just specific data from one device to the other. You may also transfer via PC.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's full of stars The Galaxy style is a variation on a purple theme for the 3DS. It has a shiny, not quite metallic look to its shell, and inside is a high performance popular gaming system that does 3D displays without needing goggles. It has two forward-facing cameras that detect where your face is (angle and approximate distance) and auto-adjusts 3D display parameters to make the image very stable without "ghost" artifacts that even goggle-based 3D displays can do wrong. 3D does not work for more than one person viewing at a time, and does have limits as to how close or far you are and in what relative horizontal-neutral position you are to the unit. Still, 3D is far from gimmicky, does add to realism and immersion of gaming. Its sound from stereo speakers either side of the display can also seem almost 3D in perception.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves this! It matched all the specifications given and she is very pleased with this 3DS. And I must say a VERY BIG THANK YOU TO GAMESTOP! I ordered this for her for Christmas and I received an email originally stating I may not receive it in time for Christmas due to bad weather and shipping issues due to this but, low and behold it showed up 1 day before Christmas! Thank you so much!! They paid for 2 day delivery! Awesome!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO CHARGER I can honestly say I can't say how this works since it did not come with a charger. My 10 year old son received this for Christmas but is unable to play with it since there is now way to charge it. It takes a very specific charger that every single store in our area is out of. I ordered one but it will be a few days. I am so disappointed

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Factory defect I was super excited for this system and was happy once i bought it because of how beautiful it looked. However, I quickly became upset once i saw that there was a dead pixel on the top of my screen. You can see it more when the screen is dark and during darker game play. It is extremely distracting for me and that is my only complaint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent system, and worth upgrading. My son has a New 3DS XL and his first generation 3DS XL that it replaced. I wanted to play his copy of Ocarina of Time, so I borrowed his first-gen. The 3D effect/performance is garbage compared to the New system, and I really wanted to play Zelda in 3D, so I bought my Galaxy New 3DS. The performance difference is astounding. Some people say it's not worth the cost of upgrading... I disagree. If it's in the budget and you're on the fence, go ahead and buy it. It's great. You'll need a new memory card because the New one uses micro SD and the first-gen uses the full size, but micro SD is really affordable now. 32GB was $11 not too long ago. I got that one for my son, though, and I'm still using the 4GB that came with the Galaxy. I prefer physical media over eShop downloads, so 4GB is more than enough, and likely will be for a while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best 3DS yet, but not exactly worth the switch To start off, if you want to get a 3DS and don't know where to start, buy this one. The galaxy design is very aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at, and while the outer shell is a bit slippery and gets greasy quite fast, it's still very easy to grip and hold on to. The enhanced features are a great improvement over the previous 3DS versions, with the better processor being a godsend when you want to download large games. I wish the SD card that comes with the system had more storage capacity. 4GBs it just not going to cut it with some games. Speaking of games, there are some titles that are new 3DS exclusive, like the SNES virtual console games. The super-stable 3D is a nice feature, but it still causes headaches for me, so if you don't like headaches, it's not worth getting this for better 3D. In fact, if you already own a 3ds and are planning on upgrading, the $199 price tag is not worth it. If you don't have a 3ds, then by all means purchase this system. The improvements are wonderful and it can still play any 3DS or DS game you want as well as some exclusives. This is now the definitive 3DS to buy, but please don't buy it if you own a 3DS already; it may not be worth the switch.
