Perhaps not that imaginatively named, the New Nintendo 3DS (NN3DS) is indeed the new Nintendo 3DS. But this is not just a simple redesign — there is an array of new features, including a larger screen and more powerful game hardware.
There’s also an extra nublike analog stick, called the C-stick, which means the portable now comes with two sticks to go with the directional pad. Why is this necessary? Rival consoles have two, and they’ve become a standard need for many games. What’s more, gamers have been asking Nintendo for years to improve the controls and gameplay with a second stick.
