New Nintendo 3DS offers new customisation options, new speed, new controls, new 3D viewing, and a whole new experience!
ZL and ZR buttons have been added next to the L and R buttons, and a new C stick can be found near the A, B, X and Y buttons, expanding your control options.
With these additions, it's easier than ever to surf the internet on your handheld, or take total control in a range of games.
Controls that were previously only available on the separate circle pad pro are integrated into the console – perfect for playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the go!
Surfing on the internet is made easy by using the ZL/ZR buttons to switch between tabs, and you can zoom into the page by using the C stick.
Power up your gameplay with amiibo, interactive figures that utilise near-field communication (NFC) to enhance your games in surprising new ways!
New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL have an area on the bottom screen with NFC reading and writing functions built-in, so you can enjoy playing with amiibo in compatible software.
Enhanced processing power
Improved CPU performance also allows for faster loading of applications such as Miiverse.
Dedicated software will be released for New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL that utilises the improved performance of the new CPU. Some upcoming New Nintendo 3DS software will enable improved graphics and gameplay on New Nintendo 3DS.
More comfortable 3D viewing
The super-stable 3D function allows the system to recognise your face using the inner camera, automatically adjusting the angle – even if you move a lot during gameplay – to give the best possible 3D experience.
Please note: the 3D effect may differ between users. Viewing of 3D images by children aged 6 years and under may cause vision damage, so please use parental controls to restrict the display of 3D images.
On New Nintendo 3DS, you can customise the exterior design of your system with replaceable cover plates!
Cover plates come as sets of front and back plates, in a variety of different designs and fun textures. Swap them out whenever you please, and combine different front and back plates for a totally unique look.
