Finally, the New Nintendo 3DS XL launched in North America yesterday, alongside two “AAA” titles for the 3DS: the highly-anticipated Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D; and Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
The new and improved hardware boasts a faster internal CPU, face-tracking 3D technology, and an additional “C-Stick.”
Some titles (such as Majora’s Mask 3D, MH4U, and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS) enjoy benefits on the New 3DS XL system, such as sharper graphics, better connections for online play, Amiibo support, and more control options with the C-Stick / extra trigger buttons.
These titles still work on pre-existing 3DS systems, but some future releases – such as Xenoblade Chronicles, set for April 10 – will be exclusive to the new handheld.
