It has been a race for mobile devices and handheld consoles when comes to gaming. So far, mobile devices have been at the top, but will the new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL change the game?
The new Nintendo 3DS has been innovated to become the ideal handheld for gaming. From the outside, there is a noticeable slight change. The new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL are designed to be more pocket friendly, possessing a symmetrical shape, and they both weight less than their predecessors. Opening it up, there is an appealing stick to the right just above the X-button. The stick is what Nintendo takes pride in, and it is called the C-stick. The stick will allow players to be able to change the camera angles in the games during awkward levels. There are also additional shoulder buttons to enhance gameplay.
Another feature in the new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL is the new eye camera that is used when playing 3D games. The new eye camera is engineered to easily detect the players’ eyes and prevent the screen from being distorted. The new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL both have a better CPU which will allow users to browse the Internet faster and download games much faster as well. The new 3DS will be able to work with Amiibo, which are plastic figures designed like Nintendo characters to allow players to immediately transfer their old data to their new console. However, this feature is reportedly not available the new 3DS XL.
While the previous Nintendo 3DS has been sold approximately than 14 million worldwide, a remake of Super Smash Bros for the console was the hottest game, selling up to 2.8 million copies. The new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL is announced to be released in Japan on October 11 of this year. Australia will get their hands on the new consoles next month. The consoles won’t be released in North America and Europe until 2015.
