Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL


It's the games that make the system, right? That's especially true with the Nintendo 3DS, which judged on its technical merits isn't a particularly great bit of hardware.

This is not the 3DS completely redefined, but the perks and tweaks make for a better overall experience.
