Nintendo 3DS XL Console (Red and Black)
Nintendo 3DS XL Console (Red and Black)
  • Description

    Nintendo will launch Nintendo 3DS XL, a new version of Nintendo 3DS with 90 % larger screens. The new system will create even more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of games and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.

    The new system’s battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4 GB SD card.

    Even with the addition of the bigger screen, Nintendo’s aim was to still make the system available at a reasonable purchase price. Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included.

    What is the 3DS?

    The rumours had been round for ages, but that didn’t stop everyone’s jaws dropping the moment Nintendo officially unveiled the 3D follow-up to its DS handheld. Especially as it doesn’t require cumbersome 3D glasses to enjoy its startling effects, and even offers 3D picture-taking and movie-watching!

    Featuring the traditional dual-screen, the top 3.5-inch gaming display is designed to produced crisp 3D images, while the bottom 3D-less display works as the touch panel. The sleek little machine also promises improved graphics capabilities over previous DS models, as well as incorporating new motion-sensor controls, which Nintendo is confident will lead to “interesting new gaming ideas from developers”.

    What else can it do?

    While the 3D visuals were enough to get fists punching the air in excitement, Nintendo also proudly showed off its new built-in camera with two camera lenses, enabling you to take photographs in 3D! Plus, it also carries the potential of watching 3D films on the machine, with Nintendo demoing trailers from upcoming 3D movies from Disney, Dreamworks and Disney. Better than those silly little screens on backs of airplane seats, eh?

    To complete the announcement, Nintendo revealed a tantalising list of third-party publishers currently working on titles for the forthcoming system. This included an exclusive Metal Gear Solid adventure, DJ Hero 3D and high-speed racing game Ridge Racer.

    3D Screen:

    Seeing marvellous 3D worlds come to life in the palm of your hands is an experience you have to see for yourself to believe it! The large top screen of the Nintendo 3DS system uses the latest technology to produce vivid and convincing 3D effects without the need for special glasses.

    3D depth slider:

    The 3D depth slider allows you to increase or decrease the 3D effect to find a level of 3D that's comfortable for your eyes: it can be increased up to the highest level, scaled back to a more moderate setting or even turned off completely, depending on your personal preference. (If children aged six and under have access to the system, parents or legal guardians should restrict the display of 3D images using the Parental Controls feature.)

    Three cameras:

    Photos in three dimensions:

    Take photos like never before with the Nintendo 3DS Camera application! The Nintendo 3DS system comes with an inner camera and two outer cameras, allowing for pictures in full 3D. Family portraits will never be the same again!

    Create your Mii:

    Put yourself in the game! Anyone can easily make a personal Mii using the new Mii Maker application! Just take a 2D photo of yourself or someone else and Mii Maker will help you out. All you have to do is specify things like the colour of hair, eyes and skin and you'll have your own personalised Mii before you know it!

    Augmented Reality games:

    The 3D capabilities of the cameras allow you to truly enter a new dimension with Augmented Reality, in the AR Games application. Place one of the provided AR Cards on a flat surface, stand back and watch your game explode into life!

    StreetPass and SpotPass:

    Stay connected and be surprised! Nintendo 3DS keeps you connected to the world - when you're actively playing and even when you're not, using the low-energy Sleep Mode. Simply close your system while the power is on and carry it with you wherever you go!

    StreetPass:

    Interact with other players as you pass by them in the street or stand next to them in a queue. Your Nintendo 3DS system will seek out and exchange data with other Nintendo 3DS systems, providing you with new content or fresh challenges from other players.

    With SpotPass, your Nintendo 3DS system can detect wireless hotspots or wireless LAN access points and obtain various types of data on the spot. Free software, notifications and 3D content are just some of the things that might surprise you as you discover something new every day!

Nintendo 3DS XL Console (Red and Black)

It has a vast amount of games out available to play. Also, the bigger screen size helps make playing games more immersive and enjoyable.

Nintendo 3DS XL Console (Red and Black)

Excellent console ,fast delivery, cheapest price.

Nintendo 3DS XL Console (Red and Black)

The 3DS XL is a must purchase, it is so much better playing any of your games on the larger screen! It feels great to hold too! If you love your 3DS then you will love this more!

3DS XL

Having received my 3DS XL on the day of release meant that I had the opportunity to become a proud owner of a Nintendo 3DS XL. The bigger screen makes it easier to use and the 3D effect is not bad. Response was good. Only bad thing was the power adapter had to be bought separately.

Product ok - all boxing and packaging damaged

This product is fine but not happy with the boxing and packaging. It was all ripped and damaged, as though it had been opened. I have considered sending back.
