The Nintendo 3DS might have some more new features.
The Nintendo 3DS is a handheld system that is a successor to the Nintendo DS, DSi and DSi XL, and was famous for being the first Nintendo system since the Virtual Boy to have stereoscopic 3D.
The system is very much like the DS in terms of design, there are both a touch screen and a top screen, a stylus for the touch screen, a d-pad, A B Y and X buttons, L and R shoulder buttons, and a microphone. Although features from the DSi also make a return, such as the camera (with 3D features added, and video recording added in an update), an SD card slot, Network features (Network features also existed in the Nintendo DS).
New Features Edit
The Nintendo 3DS had some new features, such as:
- Stereoscopic 3D
- augmented reality
- SpotPass (functions much like WiiConnect32 on the Wii)
- Mii Maker (much like the Mii Channel on the Wii)
- StreetPass Mii Plaza
- Video recording up to 10 minutes in the Nintendo 3DS Camera

Nintendo 3DS XL Edit
Like the Nintendo DSi, the console also had an XL version made, the Nintendo 3DS XL features bigger screens than the original Nintendo 3DS, although it was criticized for inferior sound quality from the speakers.
New Nintendo 3DS Edit
The New Nintendo 3DS is a newer and more powerful model of the Nintendo 3DS. It's new features include, Support for Amiibos, improved 3D (it has a new headtracker, which would fix the infamous 3D issue that most 3DS users faced with the older model), and the device also has an XL version with a much larger screen than the older model. It has released in both Australia and Britain as the "Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition". It was criticized for having to use a "zero size screwdriver" in order to change SD Cards, and for not shipping with an AC Adopter.
