The upgrades to the New Nintendo 3DS XL may seem slight, but they make a world of difference to the player experience.
You can't see it in this 2D picture, but the head-tracking software makes the 3D comfortably viewable even on an oblique angle.
On first glance, it appears there's little difference between the New 3DS XL and the old one. Although subtle, most of the differences are improvements.
One change in particular isn't for the better, though. You have to remove the entire back plate in order to change the micro SD card.
The face buttons are now colour-coded, Start and Select are on the side and a new C Stick will have varying functions, depending on the game.
The volume button has been moved from the bottom half to the top.
On the New Nintendo 3DS XL, the stylus and game card slot are on the front of the device, rather than the rear.
This is because the rear is home to two new, smaller trigger buttons.
What these trigger buttons will be used for will again depend on how the developer decided to implement them.
The D-Pad and thumbstick have retained their egonomic position.
Nintendo has completely removed the Wi-Fi toggle; Wi-Fi connectivity is now controlled from within the console's settings.
