When you talk about video games and gaming consoles you can’t leave out the importance of the Nintendo brand. This company is responsible for some of the most iconic game consoles, like the N64, or the the revolutionary Game Boy in 1989. Most of us in this tech industry have grew up with characters such as Mario, Luigi, Donky Kong, Zelda, etc.
Being a company that has to adapt to different technological times and generations; becomes a challenge, even for an icon like Nintendo. So it came to no surprise when Nintendo delivered a refresh to its DS brand. Every 18-months or so, they upgrade their handheld hardware. And for the most part, they deliver positive results every single time; the 3DS XL is no exception.
The big selling point is the size boost. The 3DS XL looks the same as its predecessor, but its screens are around 90 percent larger than the 3DS’, with the top 3D display jumping up more than an inch in size from 3.53 inches to 4.88 inches. Nintendo says the huge screens on the XL should make the the 3DS games you play even larger.
Can Nintendo’s 3DS XL stand up to the rest of the competitors out there? Let’s find out.
