You can check after the break for the first, hands-on footage of the 3DS XL.
It looks good so far
Yes very nice.
But I will wait until next year for the XXL version.
The 3ds XML looks good, though I won’t be getting it since I already have a 3ds
Sorry I didnt mean to say XML, I meant to say xl, my iPod touch autocorrected me
Your ipod touch dosen’t know XL is a word?!
Man, what was apple thinking…
lol He doesn’t knows how to steer
I know right! Like that whole time i was like “F*CKING DRIFT!!” XD
I can’t watch this video on my 3DS!
I have rather large hands, and My mom is half blind in both eyes, so we are both really excited for this! :D
I just wish we’d get better colours over here in Canada. :|
Half blind?….I may be half blind too. My contacts subscription for my left eye is -5.25 while my right is -5.50…I’m apparently eligible for Lasik eye surgery.
You’re mom’s excited? That’s really cool, how you have that kind of friendship with her. My mom thinks games are time wasters but in her defense I do play ALOT, I should lighten up a bit.
Same here I am low vision and I can’t play wiht 3DS I can’t wait for XL 3DS to come in Aug I wish I can fly to Japan and get it in July and come here LOL
Canada does have the same colors, even the zelda edition I saw at Eb (gamestop Canada) games website!
Do I count has half blind? my eye naturelly dis-canters so I see double
it looks so so so good :( IM DYING
Ugh…fuck you Nintendo, I’m going to have to buy another 3DS because this one looks AMAZING :D
You know, its not fair that we had to buy a regular 3DS for $250 but other people get to buy a better version for $50 less!
Chill… This happens all the time in the hardware industry and they don’t get blame for it.
You sure seem happy to curse
Well I’m offended, I’ll go cry in a corner…
Looks alright. I don’t see the point of it tho.
It looks good but I probably wont get one unless something happens to my regular 3DS
its skinnier and less bulkier, a must buy a person such as myself which of whom obtains a ps vita due to the circumstances of selling a 3ds due yet again for the lackluster games….this makes up for it, yes!
I’m not preordering because I want my ambassador status… :/
But this does look beautiful…
If you buy this and transfer, I do believe you keep your Ambassador status. Don’t hold me on that though.
You can do a system transfer (in store if you’re trading it in) that will transfer your saves, and ambassador certificate. More information here. http://www.reddit.com/r/3DS/comments/vhonf/im_thinking_about_upgrading_to_the_3ds_xl_but/
As was said, your Ambassador status can transfer to a new system. It’s pretty much like putting your old system in the newer system’s shell.
This is what i’ll be doing with my 3DS XL. =)
Want! Want! Want! I still wanna see either Kingdom Hearts 3D or Metal Gear Solid 3Snake Eater gameplay on this thing…
What ever happened to the snke skin 3ds and the kingdom hearts one?
“Will PETA complain nintendo about this one?!”
ahhh, old times
looks very good, i havent yet gotten a 3DS because i wanted the Kingdom Hearts special edition 3DS but since it is not being localized (i think) ill just get a 3DS XL …….kinda tired of looking at small screens. :DKH

Shut up, we already have that crap on the Wii U blog, WE CAN SEE PLAY ASIA WHEN WE WANT TO!!!!
Is the olimar pushie out of stock over there or discontinued?
i thought it looked ugly, but after this footage i gotta admit i am impressed
When the rotated it around to the back, I didn’t see the stylus. Does that mean it’s on the side like it should be !? :D
Yes, IGN confirmed in a 3DS XL article that the stylus is back on the side again. :)
It’s going to take some getting use to, because now I’m so use to taking my stylus out the back. :/
i gotta admit that i preferred the stylus on the back of the console. when it comes to consoles of this kind of plastic, however, i prefer it on the side. anyone agree?
I liked it on the back, it reminded me of my now dead DS Phat…;(
Wow looks really good… but unless I break my 3DS, I’m not gonna spend the money.
Also, how does the system transfer work? If I trade in a 3DS and then later get a 3DS XL, will I still be able to transfer data or no? If you need both systems… what a rip off!
You need both systems and Internet connection. Before trading in your system (If you do), ask the the clerk if he/she will let you do a system transfer.
This looks really nice. I want it soooo badly, but i’m saving up for a wii u.
Not everyone is able to afford every system at launch. :(
My mind is set on Wii U right now. As long as my launch/ambassador 3DS is still functioning 100%, that won’t phaze my hype for the Wii U.
I am not going to get that i like more portibeil you are going to need a big picot
idk man that thing looks really thin almost like a kindle sized tablet id say its still portable but u would have to bring a bag everywhere which i already do because im in collage
It Vita sized, which I find retarded since I think Nintendo and Sony forgot what “portable” meant, but who cares.
The 3ds XL top screen is almost as big as the vita now isn’t it
Those screens are super sexy, but I just don’t like the colors it’s launching in. I think I’ll hold out for a special edition.
do you think they will make a way to transfer your friend code/friends and activity log stuff
Still can’t take how the inside of all the systems are black :/ I WANT WHITE
theres no second circle pad… really?
