I actually prefer the regular 3DS since the XL is pretty much a giant screen with SVGA resolution which makes everything even look more pixelated.

Select/Home/Start button design is terrible on the 3DS.

The XL totally fixed that by having actual buttons. Who the Fuck knows what Nintendo was going for in that original design.

I don't see what's wrong with the pre-installed game. I have Super Mario 3D Land, Paper Mario Sticker Star, and Mario Kart 7 installed on my 3DS, and it's pretty damn convenient. The only downside is if the 3DS gets broken, lost, or stolen you lose are your games, but it's a risk I'm willing to take for convenience.


if your lucky and call in to nintendo and be very nice to them they may transfer games off a busted system to a new system for free ( you have to send both of them in) if they wont its like 90 bucks but your system will be under warranty for 1 year

i got a dsi xl off ebay years ago and half of the buttons did not work... called up nintendo and they fixxed it for free as a one time offer


i had a 3ds going out on me (i was able to do the transfer myself) but they said if i sent in both systems they would of done the transfer for me for free as a one time thing... just depends on who you get
WOOOO I STINK

Wait the game is located on the SD card right? Could you put it onto another 3DS or do you have to transfer it? Never tried this before so I wouldn't know.


My understanding is you would have to system transfer if you want it to be read in a different 3DS.

So many XL fanboys in here. The original 3DS will always be superior. Sure, battery isn't as good, but it's clunky and that matte finish is ugly.

Everything else is the same. Oh and XLs apparently scratch the hell out of the lower screen lmao. So much for 'better quality'!

Original > XL

That being said, this bundle looks cool...but not worth it, with the stupid games being pre-installed.


Also it's opinions on which version is better. I like bigger screen and matte finish. I like the better feel in buttons, but I still don't like the Power/Start buttons. And the whole screen scratch thing. That was for the original 3DS that had the screen scratch issue on the top screen. And this could be prevented if you used a screen protector or played a cloth between to get between the two. XL bumpers pretty much prevented this. Though I'm sure it can still happen. The "wide spread" issue was from regular 3DS.

I work in retail, and I know for a fact that the schmucks getting paid 6 digits shouldn't have those jobs. Especially with Nintendo's marketing teams, they automatically assume that the general public that they aim their ads at are intelligent (hint: they're not). Look at the Wii U's marketing, and tell me that isn't terribad. Every single customer that has asked me about it thought that it was a controller add-on for the Wii akin to the uDraw.

If I was in their position, I'd make sure to get all of the multiplatform titles that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are getting going forward and advertise the hell out of them (GTA V especially), because the future of the console looks worse than the Wii's, and Nintendo's diehards aren't going to save them. A lot of them have moved on.

When it comes to Fire Emblem, there's no need for NoA to try to sell the franchise to a grandmother or an athlete. The series is for the truly hardcore gamer, so it would only make sense to gather a group of those types of people and ask them which 3DS model they want as part of the bundle. The fact that nearly everyone is saying that they'd jump on this bundle if it was the 3DS XL shows that the people in charge of these decisions did not do their jobs.


I'm pretty sure using "terribad" automatically precludes you from getting a high paying job. You can't use CAG (or any single source) as a method for figuring out how to create your products. That's just silly.

Anyway, I love by XL but I gotta think the etching of the FE logo on an XL wouldn't be nearly as tight. (And I don't mean that in a "shit is tight, yo" way.) I think the squarishness of the 3DS makes more sense. I prefer the XL but that won't keep me from buying one of these bad boys.

I hope this isn't a GS exclusive like the art book.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I don't think using the word "schmuck" would, either. I'm just pointing out my first-hand experience, being a retail employee having to sell the damn things, that the marketing teams behind these choices are highly questionable. And I'm not saying that they should use CAG as an example, but maybe they should gather a group of people interested in the game, and then ask them which 3DS they would like bundled with the system. Odds are the majority would opt for the XL.

Honestly, if this is true, I'll be sorely tempted to buy it just because it's Fire Emblem-related. Doesn't matter that I already have both a 3DS and 3DS XL.

...have I made it clear how much I love the series yet?


What's the point of having a 3DS & XL, in this economy sell one and make some money. :)

I've personally come to the conclusion that the trade-in values and/or second-hand market values for video games isn't worth the odds of regretting it afterwards.

1. That's your opinion.
2. You don't know that they haven't done gathered and polled a bunch of target people.
3. Cost factors into the equation
4. Art factors into the equation

We are their target market, are we not? Every single thread on this topic, be it GameFAQs, Serene's Forest, NeoGAF, whatever, has had the majority wishing this was bundled with the XL.

If Nintendo even had a poll on their twitter account, that would have done the job.

How is that 3DS XL screen (quality wise)? How does it display DS Games?

Maybe they wanted a 3DS where both the DS and 3DS game looked halfway decent?

DS games look better on a 3DS XL, especially when DS games are set to native resolution.

If you don't want it in original 3DS form, then you are not the target market. The LE Fire Emblem 3DS has already been made since last year in Japan. The design and everything is finish. It would cost Nintendo more money to redesign it for the XL and start production to create the LE FE in XL.

Nintendo has already intended to sell a limited amount of the FE 3DS and I'm pretty sure most of us don't have doubt that the LE FE 3DS would not sell just because it's not XL.

Also, if there was no market for the 3DS, they would have gotten rid of that and just leave the XL.

Any idea of what the price is going to be?

I currently don't have a 3DS. Heck, I don't even have a DS. I know this is not the XL, but I love the design. Not sure if I would actually get this, but depending on the price, I might ravage up some funds from somewhere.

I would expect it to be $20 to $30 over the price of a current 3ds.

Hopefully BB will have it $10 over like with Zelda but I doubt it.

Don't believe it's coming stateside till it's here, too niche of a game I think for the US. If they do an XL version of this baby, I will probably finally fold and get a 3DS.

This game, Res Evil Revelations and that new Castlevania are going to push me over the line. Now where is the next Advance Wars by the way???
