Nintendo News: Get Hands-on With New Nintendo 3DS XL During PAX South

Nintendo has given fans the chance to get their hands on the new 3DS XL from Jan 23- Jan 25 at PAX South. Upcoming titles such as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will be available to play on the enhanced 3DS XL. Be there and have the chance to try these amazing titles and play the new 3DS XL before it launches on Feb 13.

The new Nintendo 3DS XL provides several new enhancements designed to offer the smoothest and most engrossing portable gaming experience possible. The system features a wider range of controls with the addition of a C Stick and ZL/ZR buttons, beautifully enhanced super-stable 3D via face-tracking technology, and built-in NFC functionality that allows for communication with amiibo figures. The system also has faster processing power than the Nintendo 3DS system, which allows some software to start up faster. The increase in CPU power also allows improved download speeds and smoother transitions when switching between software and when using Miiverse. (Download speeds may vary depending on Internet connections.)

PAX South runs for three days, and fans of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask know the importance of a 72-hour timeline within the game. To celebrate the upcoming launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D on Feb. 13, Nintendo is hosting a “72-Hour Mask Challenge,” which asks fans to create their personalized masks. For more details, stay tuned to the Nintendo of America Twitter account (@NintendoAmerica).

In addition to playing New Nintendo 3DS XL and many fun games, visitors to the Nintendo booth (#1234) at PAX South will have the opportunity to take photos with a real-life replica of Majora’s Mask and receive paper versions to wear around the convention (while supplies last). Fans who come dressed in costumes inspired by The Legend of Zelda will be able to bypass lines to get hands-on time with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D.
