New Nintendo 3DS & 3DS XL review


The New 3DS might not look much different from its predecessor at first glance, but it's a combination of several small hardware changes that makes this hand-held gaming console everything the original 3DS should have been. We explain in our New 3DS...

But if you consider the New 3DS's price from a broader perspective, taking into consideration the price of other games consoles, it does seem a bit pricey. You can buy the Sony PS Vita (2014 edition) for around £150, and even the Nintendo Wii U for...

New Nintendo 3DS XL


Let's cut to the chase. The New Nintendo 3DS XL is, without doubt, the best version of the 3DS ever, and the most feature-rich, comfortable and cleverly thought-out Nintendo handheld since the DS Lite. It has a fantastic 3D screen that actually works...

Vastly improved 3D effects ; Dual analogue controls ; More processing power ; Even more features

Battery life hasn’t tangibly improved ; No boost to screen resolution

There are now tons of great 3DS games out there, and if you want the best way to enjoy them you should buy a New Nintendo 3DS XL. Existing 3DS owners might find it hard to justify the upgrade, though.

New Nintendo 3DS XL


Its name might not make it clear, but the New Nintendo 3DS XL is a solid step up from and worthy replacement to the original 3DS and 3DS XL.

Face-tracking 3D effect works, with far superior 3D experience compared with 3DS and 3DS XL. Second analog stick. Solid build. Faster performance.

No AC adapter in the box. Second analog stick is stiff and not very precise. 3D mode still isn't perfect, and not for everyone.

New Nintendo 3DS XL Review – What’s in a name?


The New Nintendo 3DS XL launched in North America on February 13th, 2015. We've been playing it constantly ever since.

Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL


It's the games that make the system, right? That's especially true with the Nintendo 3DS, which judged on its technical merits isn't a particularly great bit of hardware.

This is not the 3DS completely redefined, but the perks and tweaks make for a better overall experience.

Review: What it’s like to upgrade from a Nintendo 3DS to a New 3DS XL


I've owned a Nintendo 3DS ever since the day it launched. It's not the most inventive or the most attractive portable on the market, but it features an incredible selection of first-party and third-party content. But its physical limitations have...

The New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available in the United States on February 13th, 2015.

Test: New Nintendo 3DS XL (Spiele-Konsole)


Nintendo ist zum Erfolg verdammt – und macht mit dem New Nintendo 3DS sowie der XL-Version einen geschickten Schritt. Während die stationäre Konsole Wii U nach wie vor nicht vollständig zündet, dominieren die Japaner den Handheld-Markt nach Belieben....

Verbesserter 3D-Modus ; Mehr Buttons ; C-Stick sinnvoll ; Voll abwärtskompatibel ; Stärkerer Prozessor

Wechsel zu Micro-SD ; Slot schwer erreichbar ; Keine Face Plates für XL

Der New Nintendo 3DS XL ist ein gelungenes Upgrade für eine ohnehin sehr gute Handheld-Konsole. Im Test haben uns der zusätzliche C-Stick und der wesentlich verbesserte 3D-Modus überzeugt. Einige Design-Entscheidungen, wie der versteckte...

New Nintendo 3DS XL Review - Op alle fronten beter

Nintendo New 3DS XL


Comme sa petite soeur, la New 3DS XL brille par sa 3D grandement améliorée et le confort qu'elle apporte. Une "nouvelle 3D" qui vaut presque a elle seule l'achat de la console. De plus, il ne s'agit pas de l'unique amélioration.

la 3D améliorée, la taille des écrans qui procure un plus grand confort, performances en hausse

l'autonomie, l'accès à la carte mémoire micro SD, moins personnalisable que la New 3DS

L’appréciation de chacun varie lorsqu’il s’agit de juger du confort et de l’intérêt des jeux en 3D. Cela dit, les améliorations apportées aux capacités 3D de la News 3DS XL justifient à elles seules de changer pour ce modèle ou de l’acheter pour ceux...
