The Nintendo 3DS XL, the latest iteration of the Nintendo 3DS, has just been caught in the first of what is guaranteed to be a potential flood of hands-on experiences. The combined power of NeoGAF posters as well as Google Translate has led us to believe that the kind French folks who gave the Nintendo 3DS XL a go are far happier with the handheld console from Japan instead of their national soccer team who crashed out of the quarter finals in the Euro 2012 championship at the hands – or should I say, feet of Spain. We do know that the larger viewing area offers a more immersive gaming experience as well as a better viewing angle, in addition to more natural 3D effects.
The 2D mode has also been touted to look a whole lot more superior compared to the standard issue Nintendo 3DS, and there might just be a possibility of a filter as reports trickle in to say that images displayed are easier on the eyes. The rounded corners also fulfill their ergonomic purpose, and the unit is lighter than it looks – which is always a good thing if you are going to spend hours on this puppy.
