Thoughts on the 3DS XL

22 Jun

Today, I arrived home to discover the 3DS XL. Turned on the Aqua Blue*, booted up eShop and checked Nintendo Direct. Wow. The… XL? (LL in Japan) Not an E3 announcement, I thought the rumours had been crushed. But no, here we have a 3DS with 90% larger screens, 3.5-6.5 hours of battery life, and actual buttons for Home, Select and Start. I have a couple of questions though. Why no second Circle Pad? I guess this makes sense as the 3DS’ shape hasn’t changed too significantly. Also, will the 3D “sweet spot” be larger/smaller? Will the 3D just look weird? We’ll have to wait and see. But only a month. And you’ll need US$200. Again, wow.

Note: I’m unable to accurately review things (ie Dream Drop) due my broken finger. Sorry about that.

*Ok, I never turn it off. I’ve only turned it off about four times, EVER.

Don’t worry, it won’t actually have white lines on the screen.
