The thing is I received an old 3DS (about 4 years ago) and recently an Amiibo, now I'd like to buy a better handheld.

I'd also love to play Xenoblade, Hyrule and Fire Emblem Warriors.

Thirdly, I heard playing games like Kid Icarus, Kirby, LoZ, Smash bros, Metroid are much better on a new 3DS/2DS due to it's bigger screen, processing power and Amiibo functionality.

So, which handheld would you buy ?

If you don't use the 3D feature then just go for the N2DSXL

N3DS XL because you can get one with a dual IPS display

you might want to see 3D so if you got the extra cash get the n3ds xl

but if you dont want it, the n2dsxl is better and it coimes with an AC adapter

So, a IPS screen is better than a TN screen ?

This kind of reminds me about Vita's OLED vs LCD screen discussions.

Okay, but is the N3DS 3D mode really that good ?

This picture claims the N3DS has "super stable"/better 3D.

I hope it's not just another marketing tactic.

Yes visually. But IPS screens also consume more power. It's not as though a TN screen will prevent you from enjoying games either. Just get a N2DS XL, I have one and it works fine.

i cant personally vouch for it. im in a similiar position as you actually where im about to get one of these machines. granted it wont be for another month or so and it'll probably be a used one on ebay.

i heard its a lot more stable and better though and even good, same as you heard. the reason i consider the n3ds xl is cause i want the fire emblem fates one and i cna turn off the 3d if i dont like it. but if i get the 2ds xl i wont have that option

I recommend the 3D version because it looks awesome and my eyes work.
I'm sick of off topic threads and abusive mods.

I've owned an old 3ds for many years and got a N3ds this year, never used to use 3d but they improved it a lot so I use it frequently.
