The New Nintendo 3DS model adds a number of improvements to the original 3DS console.
The top screen is 1.2 times larger, a new right stick analog nub is added, and there are two new shoulder buttons. On the inside, there’s additional processor cores, a bump in RAM to 256 MB, and an in-built NFC reader used for scanning amiibo figurines. The stereoscopic 3D effect is also more stable, and can detect the angle of the player viewing the screen.
All in all, it’s probably the most refined version of the Nintendo 3DS.
