Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Edition review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of the Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Edition. IT'S PIKACHU. And now Pikachu's a 3DS XL, accomodating the needs of large-handed gamers (like myself) while drastically increasing the screen size of the previous hardware iteration. As a result, the most comfortable viewing distance for 3D effects has increased to around 18 inches from one's eyes, allowing for more comfortable viewing and a generally improved experience. This video review features video gameplay footage of Etrian Odyssey IV, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Star Fox 64 3D, and Mighty Switch Force on the Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Edition and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
