    It should be but the seller seems sketchy as they claim to be Nintendo. I would buy one from ebay that is clearly stripped from another console and not made in some shady factory in China. Real screens appear to be selling for 40-50 on Ebay but if you're desperate go for it I guess.

    That appears to be for the regular XL and not the New 3DS XL, since it says "New Replacement LCD Screen Display For Nintendo 3DS XL LL N3DS"

    Exactly. No mention of "New" anywhere in that line.

    I'm certain they mean N3DS as in Nintendo 3DS since there's no mention of "New" and I'm 90% sure the screens are different between the new and old models due to the face tracking 3D so it can't possibly be for both models.

    Usually any "new" model 3DS parts are listed as 2015 model. A lot of these parts that say N3DS does not refer to New 3DS. They mean Nintendo 3DS.

    Yeah I looked into it and after doing a bit of research it is legitimately Nintendo. I just want to make sure it's compatible with the new 3DS

    There's no way in hell Nintendo will sell LCD's for their consoles, at most they sell back plates and covers

    About ^those screens: is it possible to know whether they are IPS ones or TN ones?
    If I wanted to replace a TN screen with a IPS one, how could I find and buy it?

    Jap region XL is LL. That is regardless of whether it is the "new" model or not.

    When it says the seller is Nintendo it just means someone is claiming it to be an official Nintendo product. Even the product description has a grammatical error. Ships from and sold by amazing-zone.

    Sorry for quoting my post, I believe it's a fundamental factor to take into account when buying a New3DS XL top screen and could be useful to the OP, too. Any suggestion?

    Good luck. The "new" 3DS parts are hard to find.
