  • 1Description

Achieve total immersion with dual large screens and 3D graphics with the black 2015 version of the 3DS XL Handheld Gaming System from Nintendo.

The Nintendo 3DS is compatible with all 3DS and eShop games, as well as most DS and DSi games. Also, certain future releases will only be available on this Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 model. Designed for the family, the Nintendo 3DS XL has a 3D depth slider, a 3D camera, face-tracking 3D capabilities, StreetPass, SpotPass, wireless connectivity, and even access to the Miiverse online community.

Note: AC Adapter is not included. You can use any Nintendo 3DS, 2DS, 3DS XL, or DSi charger with the new Nintendo 3DS XL.

Face-Tracking 3D
The face-tracking feature uses the system's inner cameras to adjust images based on your viewing angle, so you can enjoy total immersion in your games.
Improved Controls
The C stick brings added control possibilities (like intuitive camera control) to compatible games. And the added ZL and ZR buttons give you more options than before.
Built-in amiibo Support
Tap an amiibo figure to the near-field communication (NFC) reader on the lower screen to enjoy amiibo features in compatible games. Get bonus items and content, customize your character, and more when you use amiibo figures (like Mario) with amiibo-compatible games.
More Power
Improved CPU performance means faster loading times, so you spend more time playing. Many games will look and play better and several upcoming games will be built from the ground up to take advantage of this power boost.
Play More Games
You can still play all Nintendo 3DS games and nearly all games from previous systems such as Nintendo DS and DSi. And, some future titles will be exclusively playable on this 2015 version of Nintendo 3DS XL.
Data Sharing
You can transfer your photos, music, and other files between a PC and your system's microSDHC card via a wireless network. No need to remove the microSDHC card.
Improved Web Browsing
The improved Internet browser lets you watch videos and surf the Web with ease. You can even use the ZL/ZR buttons to switch tabs or zoom in with the C stick. You can browse the web right from your 3DS XL from anywhere with a wireless Wi-Fi network. You can pause your game at any point to search a website for game hints or catch up with email and news.
Improved Camera
Enjoy improved results when you take photos in low-light situations.
3D Screen
The Nintendo 3DS XL system features a stereoscopic 3D display on the top screen to give objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.
3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS XL system to your preference. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely. All Nintendo 3DS games and applications can also be played in 2D.
3D Camera
The Nintendo 3DS XL system can take photos in 3D, thanks to the two outward-facing lenses. Capture eye-popping images of your friends and family, have fun with filters like the Merge lens, or even use the system's AR technology and included AR Cards to make Mii characters and Nintendo heroes appear in the real world with you. You can share your 3D photos with others by submitting them to the Nintendo 3DS Photo Showcase. Browse featured galleries or submit your own masterpiece to the Showcase. In a creative mood? You can record your own 3D videos, or 3D stop-motion animation using the built-in 3D camera.
Motion Sensor & Gyro Sensor
Portable play controls allow for unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.
Analog Control
With the Circle Pad, located above the D-pad, the Nintendo 3DS XL offers full analog control. Combined with the touchscreen, traditional buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor, the Nintendo 3DS XL provides a variety of ways to interact and play.
The Nintendo 3DS XL comes with a Stylus to allow for precise touch controls on the bottom screen.
Two Screens
On the Nintendo 3DS XL, a widescreen display on the top screen shows an 800 x 240 pixel resolution, allocating 400 pixels for each eye to create the 3D effect. The bottom LCD touch screen operates at a 320 x 240 resolution. Both screens are capable of displaying a brilliant 16.77 million colors.
SD Memory Card Included
The Nintendo 3DS XL comes packed with a 4GB SD memory card. You can use this SD memory card to store your 3D photos, sound recordings created on the system, and music from your PC. You can also use it to store games downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS XL features SDHC card compatibility to increase your storage space even further.
Backwards Compatibility
Almost all existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in 2D. With backwards compatibility, your existing portable games look and play just as well. If you've downloaded Nintendo DSiWare games and applications on your Nintendo DSi system, you can transfer most of those games to the Nintendo 3DS XL. You can also transfer downloaded software, sounds, and images between systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. Some games cannot be transferred. See the full list on Nintendo's official website.

Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games will be displayed in 2D graphics.
Select Nintendo DS games that use accessories in the Game Boy Advance slot of the Nintendo DS system are not compatible with the Nintendo 3DS XL.
Flipnote Studio cannot be transferred to the Nintendo 3DS XL. Nintendo will be developing a similar application for the Nintendo 3DS XL.
A system update may be required for some features.

After choosing just a few basic settings, take a photo of yourself or a friend with the built-in camera, and let the Mii Maker application automatically generate your Mii character. Then make any final adjustments and your Mii is ready.

    Nintendo REDSVAAA reviews

    3DS XL Handheld Gaming System (2015 Version, Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for adults too! As a traveling gamer, I thought I'd give the 3DS a shot. There are a lot of good games for it, battery holds a decent charge (5 hours), easy to pause and resume on the fly, etc. I have not had a handheld since the original gameboy when I was a kid, this is much improved. :) Only real con is that it is difficult to play an extended period of time on some games with large hands. I can't knock them too much on that though since it is a casual device and really designed toward kids. I play with the 3D off, but it isn't too bad if that's your thing. It does not come with a charger, so make sure you pick one up if you don't have one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Improvements! I'm an avid gamer and a huge fan of Nintendo; at first, I was skeptical about a new Nintendo 3DS XL coming out, but being a gamer and all, I had to get it. I'm very happy with my purchase - first of all, the 3D and face tracking system makes the gaming experience THAT MUCH BETTER. On my old 3DS XL, I always played with the 3D off, but with the face-tracking system on the new 3DS XL, it makes playing in 3D easier on the eyes. The overall processing speed seems to have gotten faster and overall, Nintendo did a great job. The only con is that the unit is of a glossy finish, which I don't mind too much, but I do hate the occasional fingerprints and smudges.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 3DS yet! The New Nintendo 3DS is the newest model of the 3DS. It is used primarily for playing video games. It has more features than any of it's predecessors, and improved hardware. It has a faster processor than the original 3DS, making large games run faster, and giving the player more enjoyability. New buttons include, the ZL and ZR buttons, and the Camera-stick. These allow new in-game functions, such as alternative controlling, and being able to view the world around you. The only problem with the NN3DS is the price of games. During initial release they are around $$USD, but most first party games rise in value going up to 50, 60, 70, and in some cases 90 USD. Aside from this, the NN3DS is a great investment, and a great console for any and all ages. It gets a 9.5/10 from me :D

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best in 3DS I was one of the few people to actually purchase a 3DS when it first came out back when it cost $250! Luckily nintendo awarded everyone who purchased it 20 free games (10 from NES and 10 GBA games). I was excited to get it since my current DS at the time was messed up (the touch screen didn't work since I accidentally spilled liquid on it = ) anyway I've had the first 3DS for 3 years and was excited for this upgrade. So now I'll go over all the great features for owning this NEW 3DS XL. Pros -The screens are the first thing you'll notice when you first open the system. The screens are nice and clear so you won't miss a detail on any game you play -The 3D effect is even better with the face tracking system you'll never have to stay still to view 3D -Battery life is longer with over 6 hours or more of gameplay per charge -Controls are nice and reachable even with small hands -Volume is loud and clear -Extra controls for new future games coming out for the system -Backwards compatible so you can enjoy both DS and 3DS games Cons -Doesn't come with a charger but Nintendo decided to not put one in so it'll stay the same price as the current 3DS and since many people may have already owned a previous DS family they may already own a compatible charger -New cartridge slot is on the bottom left corner and I accidentally pressed the game out while playing Besides that this system is great. With the many great games out there to play I'll never find myself bored of playing this system. I see myself owing this piece of hardware for many years to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Nintendo Product... I use this to play Majora's Mask and Monster Hunter. I intend to buy some other games as well. I mostly play at home, occasionally I bring it with me to other places. The controls are solid, good build quality. The 3D is usable and works somewhat well. Honestly this feels like technology from 5-10 years ago in a lot of ways. The cameras are very underwhelming and for my purposes pointless. This is very much a situational thing: Wifi where I live is not picked up by the 3DS at all. This problem doesn't occur with other Wifi networks, so take this as a caution rather than a negative.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quailty Faster CPU. 3D tracking view. C-stick. BUT: 1. Yellowish upper screen. 2. The user has to unscrew its 2 back screws and take the back off to replace the microSD card. 3. The upper plastic part is wider than the lower part. So its edges are super sharp. I almost got a cut on my palm when playing a game. This never ever happened in my life. I saw Youtube reviews and this is a COMMON issue! I am thinking of returning this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is how all online shopping should be... As the 3DS arrived in new condition, and the product itself is fairly self-explanatory, I'll speak on my experience of using B&H. The website was functional and easy to use, their price at the time was equal to the lowest I could find. The checkout was smooth, and to the best part, shipping was ridiculously fast. Unlike other vendors I've used before, B&H doesn't take a week to process the order or even longer to get it on its way. Incredibly positive experience all around. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great website I bought this for my son for Christmas. Every place even somewhat close to me was sold out so I went online and ordered it on Somehow there was a technical error and my order was cancelled. I didn't really want to buy from amazon (it was overpriced on there anyways) and didn't want eBay either and this site (bhphotovideo) was the ONLY place I could find it. Quick internet search on this place and it seemed legit. My son finally got his xmas gift! I was very pleased that I could find it and it's sad I live in Ohio and had to order out of state lol thanks so much!
