Very quick delivery (ordered from France) Well packed so no problems during shipping. A very professional team, thumbs up guys.

The new 3DS XL is what the 3DS should've been in the first place : smooth interface, better 3D screens, better processor, better download speed slim form factor, built-in NFC, dual analog+ZR/ZL.

"Great update to great system" Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a great system. The 3DS was super before, but with a few tweeks and added bells and whistles this system is even better. Also great service from MightyApe. Answered all my questions and shipped in good time.

"Superior 3DS"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I wanted to replace my old 3DS XL specifically for it's exclusive titles, but a major feature that made this a superior console for me is it's super stable 3D. I struggled so much to keep the 3D in focus and sit comfortably on the old console that it was rendered a useless gimmick to me, now I can use the 3D feature no matter how I hold it or how I sit or move. The only downside is the new button placement and memory card. You have to detach the back to switch out memory cards and the power button and game card slot are now on the front of the console making it awkward to hold, at least for me. It also doesn't come with a charging cord, luckily for me I had a spare and a USB charger. You can pick up a USB charger for around $2 if buying a new charger is really an issue price wise. Despite this, I'm thrilled with the upgrades and think it truly is superior and worth the switch.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

These will only play EU/AU/NZ games, not US ones.

Otherwise, works great.

The New Nintendo 3DS and is the newest hardware revision of Nintendo's 3DS handheld gaming platform. The New 3DS integrates a number of new features and innovations, most notably a new analog control stick, more computing power, two new buttons, Amiibo integration, and changeable cover plates.

The New 3DS is available in both standard-sized and XL form factors. Both designs feature revised controls and faster processing.

The right analog knob is located above the right-hand face buttons. Because of its placement it appears that users will be expected to rely on shoulder buttons for quick input when utilizing the second stick.

In addition to the new controller, the new 3DS incorporates third and fourth back trigger buttons, the ZR and ZL buttons, conveniently located for use with the new analog stick.

Nintendo also promises a wider 3D viewing angle than previous DS models, resulting in less image blurring when viewed from ths side.

The computing power of the 3DS has also been expanded by new internal hardware.

The New 3DS integrates NFC connectivity into the bottom touchscreen, allowing Nintendo's Amiibo figurines to be placed directly on the display to interact with the software. Amiibo toys are already slated for integration with a variety of Nintendo game products, including Super Smash Brothers.
