Nintendo New 3DS XL Review

The New Nintendo 3DS XL is currently the pinnacle of handheld consoles. It comes with an enhanced capability, keeping as well the assets of the previous versions of this portable Nintendo console! If you are a fan of portability, you surely enjoy this kind of consoles and having the new Nintendo 3DS might be just the right thing for you. The device has been improved both on the surface and under the hood so that the experience reaches a new level of refinement during use.

Probably the best improvement that the New Nintendo 3DS XL brings is the control scheme enhancement. For a long time now, the handheld devices were criticized because certain maneuvers were difficult to pull off in games due to the lack of accessible buttons. The new console brings 3 new buttons to players in order to take gaming to a new level. The C stick has been added next to the XAYB buttons in the right area of the console and it’s designed to provide controls such as the intuitive camera control, designed to work in certain games. The other two buttons are the ZL and ZR pair, added to be conveniently used with your index fingers.

Buttons are not much on their own and this is why the New Nintendo 3DS XL comes with other improvements, as well. Thus, you can enjoy more power inside your handheld device thanks to an improved CPU. You have the chance to play games at a far better level than before and upcoming titles will be designed with the new architecture in mind. These games will probably be exclusive for the platform, but there’s no need to despair: you can easily play games from previous DS consoles so you have access to a rather massive library whenever you decide to fire up the console. Thanks to wireless integration, you can now transfer multimedia content between the device and a computer, as long as you have a micro SDHC card inside. The Nintendo 3DS XL also has an improved camera that you’ll be able to enjoy in low-light conditions, and that permits much clearer photos.

Immersion is always a must-have when it comes to games, even if you play them on a small device like the New Nintendo 3DS XL. This is why the inner cameras of the system are capable of face-tracking, so the 3D experience of games is not spoiled by a bad viewing angle. Last but not least, if this is not your first Nintendo console and you’d like to preserve your data, you can easily share the files between the old and the new console, but you can also share these files through the aid of a computer. Whatever your choice would be, you can resume gaming in no time and benefit from the enhanced capabilities of the freshly designed console.

  • Pros:
    More powerful CPU Better camera Improved face-tracking
  • Cons:
    No AC adapter
Our score:
4.5 / 5
