Nintendo 3DS XL Green Yoshi Edition
The perfect way to play the game, this special edition handheld features Yoshi's signature color and a portrait of the egg-tossing hero himself. (Note: game not included.)
The Nintendo 3DS XL system combines next-generation portable gaming with eye-popping 3D visuals - without the need for special glasses. Take 3D photos, connect to friends, other players, or wireless hotspots with the wireless StreetPass and SpotPass communication modes. From games to photos and beyond, Nintendo 3DS XL is the ultimate 3D entertainment system. It comes bundled with a 4GB SD card, making it perfect for downloading content from the Nintendo eShop.
The Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems feature a stereoscopic 3D display on the upper screen to give objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.
3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to adjust the intensity of the 3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely - all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D.
The Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems can take photos in 3D, thanks to the two outward-facing lenses. Capture eye-popping images of your friends and family, have fun with filters like the Merge lens, or even use the system's AR technology and included AR Cards to make Mii™ characters and Nintendo heroes appear in the real world with you.
You can share your 3D photos with others by submitting them to the Nintendo 3DS Photo Showcase. Browse featured galleries or submit your own masterpiece to the Showcase.
In a creative mood? You can record your own 3D videos, or 3D stop-motion animation using the built-in 3D camera.
Motion Sensor & Gyro Sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features, allowing for unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.
With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, all three systems in the Nintendo 3DS family offer full analog control. Combined with the touch screen, traditional buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor, the potential is extraordinary.
All systems in the Nintendo 3DS family come with a Stylus to allow for precise touch controls on the bottom screen.
Almost all existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in 2D. With backwards compatibility, your existing portable games look and play just as well*.

You can also transfer downloaded software, sounds, and images between systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. Some games cannot be transferred.
