Don’t Forget: The 3DS XL is in Stores NOW.
As you can see, I’m currently in the process of transferring all data (via Pikmin of course) from the original system to my shiny new “Virtual Boy Red” XL. This thing is indeed beautiful and for those of you that are still on the fence about making the upgrade I have to say just go for it already. It really does make the original design feel like a prototype. I love the matte finish and the new select, start and home buttons feel fantastic. In related news, I downloaded New Super Mario Bros. 2 at the stroke of midnight and holy hell, that game is hard. My first impressions are that it really feels more like a glorified “mode” than a whole new game which is too bad. Still, I’m having a good time playing it. I’ll have more to report soon enough I’m sure, so stay tuned.
