Manufacturer's Description

Exclusive games
All the systems in the Nintendo 3DS family play exclusive titles you can’t find anywhere else, from Mario to Zelda, Animal Crossing to Pokemon. You can even download many of these titles–plus digital-only games–directly to your system from Nintendo eShop.

Built-in fun
Nintendo handheld systems include tons of extra features, including access to the Nintendo eShop, wireless connectivity for playing with friends, and parental controls.

One unique way to connect is StreetPass, a social gaming feature that lets you exchange certain types of data with other people’s systems while your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS is in Sleep Mode.

3D options
The Nintendo 3DS XL includes 3D viewing, adding a whole new element to gameplay. It also includes a 3D depth slider, so you can change the intensity level at any time.

And for those who prefer not to play in 3D, the Nintendo 2DS is the perfect choice.

Compatibility
Already have Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi games at home? The Nintendo 3DS family is backwards compatible, so you can still play your existing games—plus the hottest new releases.

3D screen
The Nintendo 3DS XL system features a stereoscopic 3D display on the upper screen to give objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.

3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS XL system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely—all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D.

3D camera
The Nintendo 3DS XL system can take photos in 3D, thanks to the two outward-facing lenses. Capture eye-popping images of your friends and family, have fun with filters like the Merge lens, or even use the system’s AR technology and included AR Cards to make Mii™ characters and Nintendo heroes appear in the real world with you.

Motion sensor & gyro sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features, allowing for unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.

Analog control
With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, systems in the Nintendo 3DS family offer full analog control. 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.
