"Improvements on an already great console"

I didn't know the 3ds could get any better until I got myself the new 3ds, and I'm happy I did. Great service and fast shipping = happy customer :)

As an owner of both this and an original 3DS XL (gifted after purchasing this), I'd highly recommend it to someone considering a 3DS system. Thanks to the face tracking, I'm able to leave the 3D on all the time without being forced to hold the system still, and the extra ram makes games that previously experienced slowdown run smooth. 11/10

"The best 3DS"
5 stars"

This is absolutely the best 3DS on the market in comparison to the old 3DS systems, the 2DS and the normal size ‘new’ 3DS. With the improved 3D element, increased power, brilliant screen real-estate of the XL, and the additional c-stick, why wouldn't you buy this-

Ordered the new 3ds and it is almost here but the service on their end was superb, always answered my (many) questions with lightning swiftness and made everything about importing this from New Zealand to the UK clear.

"Absolutely worth it!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this as an upgrade from my Nintendo DS Lite. Was a bit worried the size would be a bit much, but it's perfect! Fits nicely in your hands, and is comfortable for long sessions. All the buttons are easily accessible and they feel nice to press. The screen size is amazing, and the 3D function works super duper well, especially with the new head tracking stuff. If you don't already own something from the 3DS family, the New 3DS is definitely the way to go!

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.
