About this deal

Nintendo and Sega also launched the 3D Classics series, a selection of enhanced retro games for the Nintendo 3DS featuring updated stereoscopic graphics. That said, the upgrades to the 3D capabilities in the New 3DS XL alone make it worth either upgrading or as a purchase for those dipping their toes into the world of the 3DS for the first time. On April 25, 2012, a system update brought the introduction of a folder system, which allows users to put applications inside folders. As such, the 2DS is a handheld console targeted at a different audience than that of the regular Nintendo 3DS models, particularly younger users.

On October 31, 2013, Nintendo abruptly suspended the Swapnote/Nintendo Letter Box SpotPass functionality after discovering minors were sharing Friend Codes with strangers who had exploited the messaging service to allegedly exchange pornographic imagery. So superb is this revamped 3D mode that I’ve revelled in replaying games that I originally completed either entirely in two dimensions or with only isolated uses of the 3D.

The stand made the game, and other games with similar controls such as Liberation Maiden, easier to play for various users, as it helped free the tension of suspending the console with one hand since the other hand would be using the stylus on the touch screen for longer periods than usual. Fils-Aimé assured that the 3DS "has a long life in front of it", and that Nintendo intends for it to co-exist with the Switch, [76] while Kimishima considered the 3DS as an entry-level product for younger players. Only the XL version was made available in North America at launch, [135] [136] though the smaller model was later released in a series of limited edition bundles. And, of course, the larger screen of the XL makes for top visibility, particularly on games that have a lot of action happening in a small space.

Five of the six cards have a picture of a character on them, consisting of Mario, Link, Kirby, Pikmin, and Samus. Nintendo has finally confirmed that two downloadable Pokemon games first teased during last month's Nintendo Direct Japanese broadcast will be coming to North America this fall. Other features of the 3DS include its StreetPass and SpotPass tag modes that are powered by Nintendo Network, augmented reality capabilities using its 3D cameras, and Virtual Console, which provides a method for users to download and play video games originally released for older video game systems. The D-Pad, thumbstick, right and left triggers, home button and face buttons (which are now colour-coded) are all more or less in the same positions. Attendees were then allowed into a second room, containing further games to play (mainly augmented reality-based) and in-device videos.

Following the launch of the Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo sold 452,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS family in the United States, during the month of October, double the previous month's sales. It was subsequently released in Europe on January 27, 2012, in Australia on February 2, 2012, and in North America on February 7, 2012, coinciding with the release of Resident Evil: Revelations in those regions.
