    Planning on getting a N3DS and hopefully getting it on A9LH. Was looking at the FE:F but see a lot of complaints of getting TN screens. Anyone know of a console version that is always made with IPS? Or are they all a crapshoot of TN vs IPS?

    Thanks!

    Also any advice for getting a N3DS on ax9l would be great too!

    You should specify XL, as they won't mount IPS displays on (small) n3ds.

    On topic, there's not really a way to see it until you power it up. When you arrive to the menu you'll surely notice it if you are used to TN displays.

    Step 1: Buy a N3DS XL
    Step 2: Pray it has an IPS display
    Step 3: ???
    Step 4: Profit! (Or disappointment because your system has a TN screen)
