As far as I know all the XLs have the same screen size.

The normal New did have a larger screen than the normal original/2DS though.

I'm still rocking the little wedge style 2ds ūüėõ

Oh same here. It's my favorite model.

So much that when I upgraded and moved my account to a New XL model, I continued using the 2DS afterwards... And it still gets more use than the XL.

I even ended up buying duplicates of a few digital games.

I still use my 3DS systems pretty regularly. The older OG red unit is my "travel" system (easier to transport), plus it also sees use for 3/DS games that require using the touch screen at least a little. All thanks to those nice styluses they shipped with.

My "main" unit is the SNES 3DS XL that I bought during the holidays a couple of years ago once I noticed that 3D capable units were becoming scarce. While I'm not quite as pleased with the resolution on it when I'm stuck with a 2D-only game, overall I'm very happy with the system. I would've been more pleased if I had ever managed to secure a normal sized N3DS unit as I feel like it was a happy medium between the two sizes. But as NoA dropped the ball on that one.... ūüôĄ

My biggest challenge for 3DS is getting the Japanese exclusive 3DS games.
Most of the Japanese 3DS games i want are very expensive on playasia.
And almost all of them are Nippon Columbia games that heavily targeted to female gamers and with gameplay like Cooking Mama or Nintendogs.
All my Japanese 3DS games on my list are 100% Casual games for female gamers.

My 3DS PAL version is basically the leftover version for the games who have physical release on PAL but no physical release on USA or the USA version has been extinct / too rare to be bought or the PAL version is way cheaper than the USA version. I only have 12 spots by maximum for PAL version 3DS games.

I bought extendable styli that fit in the slot of the system. My New 3DS faceplates model has a longer extended stylus, I love how small and portable it is (now that its glassed up and dont have to worry about scratching) and how games look even better on it, but it's not TOO small. As mentioned the screen is a smidge larger than the OG model's.

And the 3D with eye tracking is a must. I really dislike playing 3DS games in 2D. They look... flat and just unimpressive. The 3D makes up for the more primitive graphics imo.

It's seriously legit.

I was always curious about the 2DS but, the New 2DS XL never appealed to me. All con, no pro. Same as New 3DS XL but without 3D, which I love. The slab, however, I'm not sure what to make of it. Never bought one, but would like to test one out some day.

I try to avoid using the stylus that comes with the systems, mostly because with use it becomes too loose and falls out on its own. So I mostly just keep bigger stylus pens handy.

Though I don't really mind the regular 2DS's stylus, it's pretty functional... However the 2DS XL might as well not come with one. They give you a little nub for a stylus.

Ya the new 3DS models (including new 2DS) have ridiculous midget styli. That’s why the extendable ones were so crucial to me. Usability is huge for a system that relies on so much stylus based touch.

The Wii U had a nice girthy stylus though.

Started playing Metroid Samus Returns again. Started a new game, and just made it to Area 2. So I’m getting kinda close to where I left off before.

Such a great game. What a bummer it barely mustered 600k due to releasing 6 months into Switch lifespan. Still, I bet the other releases post-Switch did WAY worse (Alpha Dream went belly up, for example) so comparatively speaking, it may still send the right message to Nintendo.

@JaxonH i need to get back to that game. I put like 6-7 hours in but got stuck at 1 spot and couldn't progress. Came back like a year later and still couldn't get past it. Maybe ill restart a new file and give it another shot.

@NintendoByNature
Exactly same thing happened to me in Area 2. And once you leave and come back its even harder to figure out where to go. But I'm going to lean on the IGN guide this time if I get stuck. Alot of times it's just a breakable wall you didnt see before or something. Which the aeon ability helps with but, you can still miss stuff. No shame if you need a booster once in a while.

@JaxonH yea. A guide is necessary in some spots, for me at least. I suck at metroid games honestly but I love every bit of em lol

@JaxonH in fairness Alpha Dream had huge debts long before Bowsers Inside Story flopped.

I played through and 100%ed Metroid: Samus Returns roughly a year ago now. Excellent game, very much worth sticking with. I did use Aeon abilities to help me out. XD

@jump
Sure, but it does indicate Mario & Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story didn’t do well enough to reverse that trend. I hear all the 3DS games released post-Switch struggled. Another would be Chicken Wiggle from Jools Watsham (Atooi). He didn’t foresee the seismic shift away from 3DS which caused his game to tank.

So while 600k would normally be pretty disappointing for a major 1st party release of the most demanded franchise among the fanbase, taking into account relative performance I believe 600k may still have been considerably more than other 3DS games released from 2017-2019.

I also need to get back to Metroid: Samus Returns. SteamWorld Dig 2 came around the same time and I enjoyed it more so I dropped Metroid.

I'm glad we have an active 3DS thread now since I still use mine though not as much in the last month or so since I've not been playing Pokémon Shuffle anymore. I only need to get two S ranks and finish one mission to finally call it 100% done but I've failed enough times trying to get the S ranks that I'm taking bit of a break. I still plan on doing it. Just not right now. But preferably before the end of the year. I could literally do that one mission (Black Clouds Yveltal) whenever I want now that I have multiple jewels but it's just too much of a hassle.

Other than that, the last 3DS game I played was Witch & Hero III. The series is nothing special. Just a simple time waster but I must find them somewhat enjoyable. I bought all of them after all. I beat it and left it at that. Didn't touch the extra stuff.

I also played bit of Super Mario 64 DS a while ago. I've had it on my shelf for a while but just now started playing it. I've played it before when I didn't even own a DS and got quite far into it, not sure if I beat it or not, but I've always been curious if it holds up. I keep hearing people say it's not that good but I liked it back in the day. Now that I played it again and collected 10 or so stars, I can say that it's not that good. 64 is still my favorite 3D Mario game and DS pretty much murders it. Controls feel off, the new characters feel more like padding and they interrupt the gameplay with tutorials and unnecessary text boxes. It's just not as fun.

I liked Metroid: Samus Returns as well. Really solid game. The counter-attack move kind of broke the flow of the game as you're bound to use it against enemies on a regular basis, but other than that it's good old, classic Metroid goodness. It was one of the last games I got for the 3DS, as well.
