Nintendo 3DS

The original Nintendo 3DS contains a stereoscopic 3D display. It was released in Japan on February 26, 2011, in Europe on March 25, 2011, in North America on March 27, 2011, and in Oceania on March 31, 2011.

Nintendo 3DS XL/Nintendo 3DS LL

The Nintendo 3DS XL (known as the New Nintendo 3DS LL in Japan), also contains a stereoscopic 3D display, and has a 90% larger screen than the original model. It was released in Japan on July 28, 2012, in Europe on July 28, 2012, in Oceania on August 23, 2012, in North America on August 19, 2012, and in China through iQue in December 2012.

Nintendo 2DS

The New Nintendo 2DS contains the same hardware as the Nintendo 3DS, except it doesn't include the stereoscopic 3D display. Unlike the original Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo 3DS XL, the Nintendo 2DS features a slate form factor rather than the clamshell design as the other systems in the line. It was released in North America, Europe, and Oceania on October 12, 2013, in South Korea on December 7, 2013, and in Japan on February 27, 2016.
