    Would it be possible? To mod a New 3DS with screens the size of the Old 3DS? The reason why I'm asking this is because the New 3DS has slightly larger screens than the Old 3DS, everything has slightly less pixel density.

    Old 2DS/3DS = 132 Pixels Per Inch
    New 3DS = 120 Pixels Per Inch
    3DS XL/New 2DS XL/New 3DS XL = 99 Pixels Per Inch

    Would it be easier to mod New 3DS hardware and components into an Old 3DS, or mod the Old 3DS screens into a New 3DS? Would it be possible to have the OG 3DS screens be Dual IPS?

    Depends on whether the connectors are compatible; they definitely come from different places on the board, so an adapter (that you'd probably be first to invent and make) would most likely be a practical need anyway, and so would be a custom case

    If you can find them as IPS, why not?
    (and is better colors when looking at the screen sideways worth any effort?)

    12 pixels per inch isnt much.
