Everything you love about Nintendo 3DS-only bigger!

3D entertainment without glasses

Imagine playing games and watching videos on the go in full, eye-popping 3D... All without the need for glasses. Nintendo 3DS games have incredible graphics, and you can turn down the 3D effect to any level, or turn it off completely at any time with the built-in 3D depth slider to play games in crisp, clear 2D.

Games found nowhere else

When you choose Nintendo 3DS, you'll be able to experience games from some of the most popular franchises of all time - from Mario to Zelda, Pokémon, Star Fox, and more - only playable on Nintendo 3DS. All featuring incredible graphics in glorious 3D, you simply won't find these games on any other gaming device.

Plays Nintendo DS games

In addition to its exclusive new titles and features, Nintendo 3DS is backwards compatible with nearly the entire library of Nintendo DS games. So if you're upgrading from a previous Nintendo DS system, you'll still be able to enjoy your existing game collection.

Built-in fun, right out of the box

Watch games appear right on your desk with AR Games. Create your own Mii and interact with other players in StreetPass Mii Plaza. Plant a friend's face in the game, or your own with Face Raiders—and more. Every Nintendo 3DS system comes packed with a collection of built-in software that will amaze you from the moment you turn the system on.

Downloadable games, Netflix, & more

Nintendo 3DS comes hard-wired for quick and easy access to hundreds of new & classic game downloads starring your favorite Nintendo characters and more. Access to streaming TV shows and movies via Netflix, and a constantly updated stream of amazing 3D videos are also just a quick download away. It's all found in the Nintendo eShop*.

Go extra-large with the Nintendo 3DS XL system

Want an even more immersive 3D experience? Games and videos look stunning on the super-sized screens of the Nintendo 3DS XL system - 90 percent larger than those of the Nintendo 3DS. An updated form factor, increased battery life, and included 4GB SD Card make for the grandest way to experience portable gaming.

More Hardware Features

3D Screen

The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen gives objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.

3D Depth Slider

A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to immediately adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely - all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D, and look better than any Nintendo handheld before it.

Motion Sensor & Gyro Sensor

Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features, allowing for new & unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.

Two Screens

Game graphics have never looked better on a Nintendo handheld system, thanks to the two screens of the Nintendo 3DS system.

A widescreen display on the top screen shows 800x240 pixel resolution, allocating 400 pixels for each eye to create the 3D effect.

The bottom LCD touch screen operates at a resolution of 320x240 - with both screens capable of displaying a brilliant 16.77 million colors.

Analog Control

With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, Nintendo 3DS offers full analog control in 3D game worlds. Combined with the touch screen, traditional buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor, the potential is extraordinary.

3D Camera

The Nintendo 3DS system uses its two outer cameras to see the world in 3D, much like the human eye. This allows for the creation of 3D photos, 3D video, and even 3D stop-motion animations, that make for an eye-popping addition to your next photo op.

Check out the Nintendo 3DS Photo Showcase. Browse featured galleries of user-submitted photos updated weekly, and submit your own.

Stylus

All Nintendo 3DS systems come with a Stylus to allow for precise touch controls on the bottom screen.

The original Nintendo 3DS comes with an Adjustable Stylus that can be shortened or lengthened to your liking, while the Nintendo 3DS XL comes with a comfortable, full-sized Stylus.

SD Memory Card Included

Every Nintendo 3DS system comes packed with a SD Memory Card*. You can use this SD Memory Card to store your 3D photos, and sound recordings created on the Nintendo 3DS system, and music** from your PC.
