There’ll be 2 versions of this new console, the NEW Nintendo 3DS and the NEW Nintendo 3DS XL.
Comparison to the 3DS and 3DS XL
while the XL will have the same screen size as the existing one, the regular NEW 3DS will have an upper screen of 3.88 inches, and a lower screen of 3.33 inches, Nintendo explains that it is 1.2 times larger than the one found on the original 3DS.
Both New 3DS’s will come with better 3D that recognizes your eyes so it fixes it to your vewing, it’s sensible to light, so when it’s darker your screen will lower its brightness, on a bright room, it’ll get brighter. It also has faster loading time, such as when downloading games on the eShop.
Additionally, it’s been said that not only will it play existing 3DS games, there’ll be games exclusively made for it and also, games that’ll come out for the 3DS will have additional features such as better graphics and faster loading time.
It is worth mentioning that these improvements will not happen with existing 3DS titles.
