    Hi guys

    The 3DS XL is coming soon. Assuming it's just a big 3DS, flash carts like DSTwo and Aceskard 2i etc will work.

    Any one know/ have views on how DS games will look on the bigger screen? Just like they do on the DSi XL, or better?

    All I can find is that the new 3DS XL will be compatible with most DS games, but no mention of how they will look.

    Thanks!

    To sum it up: It looks better than on the normal 3DS, even though the screen is bigger.

    I'll definitively give another shot at the three castlevania games on the XL.

    Thanks! I wonder what the guy was saying when he was trying the DS game!?!

    Looks pretty good. Pity it doesn't fill the whole screen.

    No, if it filled the whole screen, it would look ugly. The transformation would make all the characters fat. That's the best you're gonna get since the aspect ratios are different.

    As big as that screen is, imagine playing emulators on a flash cart on there. 8bit games will look like gigantic colored blocks :P But I would love playing old school games on it... I'd like to see a video of virtual console games on the xl.

    They really wont give a charger with it! This is pretty stupid on their part they could have kept their sd card and put a charger instead.The lady in the video says that because of the yen Nintendo couldn't afford to put a charger in the box.

    What you see on a 3DS XL is what you would see on a regular 3DS with your head a little closer to the screens.

    The fact that the bottom screen doesnt fill out of DS games makes it seem like it might be weird playing touch heavy DS games. (Since the 3DS had the same size as the original, there wasnt a black border around it)

    Either way, i still plan on getting one

    Yeah, I think they are only including chargers in North America... weird business choice if you ask me.

    its not weird from the business point of view but it is implied that if you sell something that uses electricity you will give the means to connect it. The weird part is that they implying that everybody who buys it has a charger. This is lower than Sony┬┤s memory card scheme.
