It’s been years since the original 3DS launched. There’s an updated version with better 3D , improved controls, and of course, a wealth of excellent games to play. There’s also a 2DS XL that can do everything its 3D brother can do, aside from 3D.
For a couple of years, I ran multiplayer Kotaku Game Nights in bars and pubs around London and Brighton, UK.
