Product Details:

The Nintendo NEW 3DS XL - Red features face Tracking 3D, The C Stick, Built-in amiibo Support, and more...

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not much better from the regular 3ds xl I have previously used an original 3ds xl myself for the past 2 years, and here's what I've noticed different with this newest model: 1. Stylus is extremely short! It's only the width of the 3ds now, not 3/4 of the length as it was previously. 2. No AC adapter included!! 3. New keys/buttons not worth it if you just wanna play mario and non-fighting games 4. Now with built in micro SD card, not a regular SD card, and I still haven't found where it is yet. 5. No "strap attachment" where you can attach a strap to prevent your little ones from dropping it. The original 3ds xl had one on each side. 6. Slightly faster than the original 3ds xl. 7. Battery seems to last longer. 8. Built in NFC / Amiibo support. Overall it's not much of an improvement from the older 3ds xl model, so unless you play fighting games or use Amiibos a lot, it's probably not worth the extra $$$.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alittle pricey $ 200 is a little to much for such a small console these days especially when you can get a regular console for 100 bucks more....I noticed that Nintendo is WAY over priced on all the products they sell

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent System I am so happy with my New 3DS XL. I got it on launch week, and here's what I have to say. The screens look much better than the standard 3DS XL, it loads games much faster, the shoulder buttons are more durable, it looks great, and I love the new placement of the volume, game card slot, and charging slot. The biggest upgrade for me are the new controls. I frequently use the ZR button to grab opponents in Super Smash Bros. online, and I use the C nub to pull Smash attacks (most helpful with Mega Man.) The biggest problem with the system is that it uses a microSD card. It is much more difficult to swap cards than it used to be, so I just bought a 32GB card so I wouldn't have to deal with card management again, especially since my computer doesn't have a microSD slot. I definitely recommend this device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TL;DR: Great handheld, no adapter included. I first got to play with the New 3DS XL when a co-worker brought his into the office. The load times are phenomenal. The face tracking for the 3D functionality is fairly accurate; it will at least make it easier to play while I'm on the train during my commute. Graphically, it's slightly better than the initial 3DS / 3DS XL, which I'm fine with. The added NFC / Amiibo support is a great upgrade. So, I went and traded in my faithful old 3DS XL to save some money on this purchase at my local Gamestop. I get home, and find: there's no charging cable / adapter in the box! I wasn't told this in store, nor was I aware of this prior to my purchase (co-worker is from the UK, and it's common practice to not include chargers in Europe / Japan so he didn't think to tell me). Sure you can buy a 3rd-party charger in store, or you can order an "official" one directly from Nintendo for about $10 USD + S/H (or search online at your favorite retailer, but expect the standard markup of a few dollars more). Still, that's a bit of a jerk move Nintendo, especially since most North America customers trade in their old handhelds when they purchase a new one, and you have to include the power adapter when you do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but unnecessary Allow me to explain. I already own a normal Black 3DS. I've been contemplating this review since the system launched (when I got mine). After thought its not worth the price. Allow me to explain. Some of the promised features are underwhelming, and most games don't utilize them. Speaking of games the exclusive library for this particular system is very very limited with the only noteworthy one being Xenoblade Chronicles 3D which I have to say the Wii version is better, but that is for another review. Lets talk about the features: Face Tracking 3D isn't as stable as advertised and is barely an upgrade, Amiibo Support will be coming to the normal 3DS and 2DS soon via a peripheral which would be cheaper than buying a new system. Control Snub is cool but ultimately not used that well in most games or not at all. the only 2 games I think take advantage of it well are Majora's Mask 3D and Smash Bros for 3DS. The extra bumpers are nice but suffer the same issue that not many devs bothered to use them or use them well. The only thing I thought was that great about it was the larger screen giving it better graphical output, but you can get that on a normal 3DS XL. Continuing, this system becomes even more of a pointless buy with Nintendo releasing the Regular New 3DS here which has the customization features people actually wanted. All in all I can only recommend this if you haven't bought a 3DS already and that would suck too because Nintendo failed to include a power cord with it! Regardless this was very disappointing and a waste of $200.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Now, to start off, I have owned a ds before, but not a 3ds. I have to say with this 3ds, I was not let down by any quality standards I had, or any issues that I thought could occur. It is a bit pricey, especially because it does not come with a charger, but it was still worth every penny I payed for it. It has improved graphics, and the 3d is very interesting (in a good way). It meets every standard I had for it, and more. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to upgrade from a previous ds, however, I do not recommend this as a first ds.
