There are a few more things that you should know about the New Nintendo 3DS. Not only does this thing feature a slew of cool and flashy upgrades, there’s intricate reasoning behind Nintendo’s decision to craft the next wave of their best selling portable console. Nintendo’s Erik Peterson was on hand shortly after the big Nintendo Direct reveal to give us a general overview of the console and answer some questions as to why some of these new features were implemented. Check out the full interview above.
One more thing I should add that wasn’t mentioned in this interview: transferring your data from your old 3DS XL, 3DS, 2DS, and DS units is simple and easy. You can kick off a transfer with the press of a button within the settings menu and from there it’s a very intuitive text prompted step-by-step process. In terms of backward compatibility, the New Nintendo 3DS will pretty much work with all of your old cables and accessories.
