The New Nintendo 3DS

The New Nintendo 3DS

Instead of giving us a completely new handheld console, Nintendo has instead slightly tweaked the 3DS and 3DS XL, beefing up the processor, slightly increasing the screen size on the smaller model and playing around a bit with the design. The killer addition though is the new 3D system that no longer requires you to look directly at the display and the effect won’t disappear when you move your head. It actually made us turn back on the 3D and go back and replay some classic 3DS titles. Other nice additions include some retro colouring on the 3DS buttons and a more ergonomic, comfier feel in the hand, plus the new nub type joystick. Oh, and you know we mentioned the processor increase earlier? Well that’ll mean some new games will only work on the new system and not on the older versions.
