Console and game absolutely great, charger not included,
This review is from: Nintendo Handheld Console 3DS XL - Limited Edition with Animal Crossing (Nintendo 3DS) (Console)
Actual console is really good, lots of nifty little features all over the place that make it work really smoothly. If you're worried about the 3D you can turn it off and it doesn't make much difference though I've had no trouble so far with eye strain, headaches etc. You have to keep it face on to work and this takes some getting used to.
I would be careful to make sure you have a compatible charger as it doesn't come with one. Luckily I had a suitable one (3DS, DSi or DSi XL will work) I think it's a good idea in terms of saving money/resources but just be careful to check or you'll be disappointed while you have to wait for one to arrive. (The console comes with some charge but not enough for much playing time)
As for Animal Crossing - so much fun! Can hardly put it down. Also having it pre-installed is rather nice as it's the kind of game you can slip into the odd 10 or 15 minutes and as it's on the SD card you won't need to carry the physical copy of the game around, you can just play it whenever. It has enough differences from Wild World so that you don't feel ripped off for buying the same game but enough similarities to bring back all the nostalgia! They've also improved a lot of little things such as not being able to donate items to the museum that have already been donated, or flowers sparkling when they're watered so you can tell.
Overall if you loved Animal Crossing and need a 3DS I'd definitely recommend buying it, I really love the exterior pattern as it's adorable but still looks grown up enough for me to get away with!
