Well, what can I say? It's a New 3DS XL, which means it has just about all you want from a hand held system. You can play your old DS and 3DS games, plus with the added power of the new system you can play those few titles that need the extra boost of the stronger processor. The 3D effect is cool, a bit of a gimmick in my opinion, but it does work much better on these new systems than when first implemented. The C stick is nice, though not a true analog stick, more just a pressure sensitive nub that you nudge this way or that without it actually moving. Two extra shoulder buttons and Amiibo support out of the box. You can download games and use the Internet, watch videos on YouTube apps and much more. Though, if you plan on downloading a lot of stuff you may want a bigger Micro SD card, the one included is only 4GB, not bad for just games and an app or two, but if you want to download full titles it will fill up quick. As per the norm nowadays for DS systems there is no charger included, I think a pretty bogus move on Nintendo's part, but that's the way they roll now. There are many ways to get one but still, for a $200 hand held you should be able to use it as is out of the box.

Beautiful little system.
The system was bought for a grown up...me. I love it. It has a beautiful galaxy coloring that looks very nice in person. It's the new 3DS so the stylus and cartridge are located at the bottom instead of top, which I don't mind. Overall I'm very satisfied.
So far, I'm really happy with this DS. This was my upgrade from a regular old 3DS, so the bigger screen was the biggest draw for me. It runs really smoothly and for the most part I like the changes in design they've made. (Particularly having a stylus that doesn't fall out nearly every time you tilt the DS the wrong way.) The battery life also seems to last much longer. I've had one glitch occur while playing Story of Seasons, which I didn't encounter playing the game on my older system: occasionally while opening up a menu it will start scrolling down endlessly of its own volition. If I exit the menu and reopen it, that usually solves the problem--sometimes it takes a couple of tries. Anyway, it's a minor issue that doesn't interfere with gameplay. Other than that, I haven't had any issues with this New 3DS and it looks so pretty. I'm really satisfied with this purchase.
Finally got it!
My son wanted this console since before Christmas and we were not fast enough to buy it. I was willing to pay more to other sellers but thankfully Walmart received some and I was able to get it. The Electronics Dept. attendant was so helpful, he suggested for me to purchase online and he would physically bring it to the online pickup desk for them to hold it for me before anyone else bought it. My son finally got his Xmas gift/birthday gift. Thank you Walmart for the personal attention. We had to buy the charger separately.
Best Portable until the Switch arrives.
Had to order this for my GF's daughter because her old 3DS charger connector broke and nowhere on the brick and mortar stores had it in stock during the holidays. We were going to Disney CA mid-January 2017 and had ordered it a week before our trip. We opted for the free shipping because paying $60 for Rush Delivery was way too much and even though she wanted it to arrive before our flight day it was notified that it would be delivered after we left. She was disappointed of course but we were super surprised that it actually arrived two days before the departure date! Great shipment and wonderful service!
Upgraded from 3DS to New 3DS XL
Love the glossy metallic finish of the purple with the galaxy intergrated into it. Swapping and transferring my data from my original 3DS to the New 3DS XL was a breeze too.
My DD was very happy with the new 3DS. The games she wanted to play were only made for the 3DS so we upgraded her device and she picked this design which goes along with her love for Dr. Who. Great for boy or girl.
Cool device with tons of features!
I was amazed at all the things it could do the 3D graphics are awesome I love taking pictures I love playing the games and that additional cartridges that you can buy are just cool it's awesome I recommend it to anybody
Nintendo 3dsxl galaxy
My daughter loved it !!!!
Good 3DS, some features are different from the original 3DS. This doesn't come with a charger so you will need to order or buy one.
