So, 3DS XL landed yesterday and what better way to celebrate its unexpected existence than a good old-fashioned poll? We’re not going to lie, many of us were slightly confused when Nintendo announced its arrival in their post-E3 Nintendo Direct video. “Where was the sleek, new redesign that we’d all hoped for?” we cried. “And where was the second circle pad?” On an extra large Circle Pad Pro, that’s where.
Just look at the size of that screen!
But regardless of whether it’s the 3DS we wanted or not, the XL and its 90% larger screen and improved battery life are very much here to stay, so the only question remaining is whether all its extra features are tempting enough to get one. Are you happy with your current 3DS or are you chomping at the bit to trade it in? Let us know in the comments below!
