Enjoy the same great 3DS features now on a bigger screen thanks to the Nintendo 3DS XL
Like previous handhelds released by Nintendo, the Nintendo 3DS XL incorporates both an upper and lower LCD display in a clamshell layout. The lower screen features familiar Nintendo touchscreen technology, is 4.18" with 320 x 240 pixel resolution and is capable of displaying 16.77 million colors, but the groundbreaking upper 3D screen of the Nintendo 3DS XL system is where Nintendo opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities. This 4.88" display is capable of displaying approximately the same 16.77 million colors, but with 800 x 240 pixel resolution. 400 pixels are allocated to each eye to enable 3D viewing. This stereoscopic 3D display gives objects within the gameworld a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. This amazing depth of field effect vastly increases the ability to see the position of characters and obstacles in compatible game, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.
3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider along the right side of the top display allows you to immediately adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS XL system to your liking.
Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with the Nintendo 3DS XL's Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor combination. Together these precision built-in features allow for new and unique gameplay mechanics as the 3DS XL reacts to real-time motion and tilt. Whether players are twisting their systems side to side, or moving it up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS XL games respond instantly.
Circle Pad Analogue Control
With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, Nintendo 3DS XL offers full analogue control in 3D game worlds. Combined with the touch screen, traditional buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor, the potential is extraordinary.
3D Camera Functionality
Along with a digital camera facing inwards towards the player, the Nintendo 3DS XL system features two outer cameras positioned along its upper edge when device is open. These two cameras see the world in 3D, much like the human eye, allowing for the creation of 3D photos - and a similar 3D effect to that seen in Nintendo 3DS games. All cameras feature 640 x 480 resolutions with single focus lenses that use the CMOS capture element and an active pixel count is approximately 300,000 pixels.
Other Key Features:
Nintendo 3DS XL brings fellow players together in exciting new ways with StreetPass communication. Set your Nintendo 3DS XL to Sleep Mode and carry it with you wherever you go to exchange game data like Mii characters, high scores, and custom characters with other users you pass on the street. You control what data you exchange and you can exchange data for multiple games at once, making virtual connections with real world people you encounter in your daily life.
Nintendo 3DS includes SpotPass, a feature that lets Nintendo 3DS detect wireless hotspots or wireless LAN access points and obtain information, game data, free software, videos and so on for players even when the system is in sleep mode.
The world of Pokémon takes a breath-taking 3D turn in Pokémon X & Y, an exclusive new entry in the popular series on the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS.
- Never-before-seen starter Pokémon, amazing Legendary Pokémon, and many more!
- A new chapter in Pokémon battling history is about to unfold with the Fairy type!
- Test your mettle in Horde Encounters, where one of your Pokémon must take on multiple foes.
Pokémon X & Y challenges players to visit the mysterious Kalos Region, a strange land that will allow you to take your very first steps into the next evolution of Pokémon, with the chance to choose between three brand new starter Pokémon!
RPG fans will no doubt love the style of play Pokémon X & Y offers, which sees you start off with a Grass-type Chespin, Fire-type Fennekin or Water-type Froakie Pokémon before really starting your epic adventure. Along the way you’ll discover its special moves and pick up experience in each battle. In turn, this means your Pokémon will grow stronger and eventually evolve.
As usual though, there are plenty of other Pokémon waiting to be discovered as you go along. For this latest release, Pokémon X & Y brings new characters like Gogoat, a Grass-type Pokémon that’s so large it can in fact carry people upon its back, to the fore. There’s also the latest evolution of Eevee named Sylveon, recently discovered Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and a mysterious Pokémon that's somehow connected to Mewtwo.
