The New Nintendo 3DS

New Nintendo 3DS
There is a New Nintendo 3DS in town. It is an upgraded version of the Nintendo 3DS handheld game system, just like the New Nintendo 3DS XL is an upgraded version of the Nintendo 3DS XL.

The XL version of the New 3DS came out last year, but it's taken a while for the smaller, non-XL model to arrive in North America. Now that is has, gamers will have their choice of New Nintendo 3DS sizes, both of which are available for the same US$ 199.99 price. There are some subtle design differences, but whether the New 3DS or the New 3DS XL is a better pick will boil down to personal taste. Either way, they both earn Editors' Choice.

The New Nintendo 3DS is obviously smaller than the New Nintendo 3DS XL. Closed, it measures 3.2 by 5.6 by 0.9 inches and weighs 8.9 ounces, making it half an inch shorter, 0.7-inch thinner, and 2.7 ounces lighter than its larger sibling. It's slightly more rectangular than the XL as well, with much less pronounced curves near the edges, giving the system a flatter, starker profile.

Aside from the difference in size, the most notable change between the New 3DS and the New 3DS XL is the former's support for interchangeable faceplates. Users can switch out faceplates for both the top and bottom halves of the system, letting them customize the look of the system.
