I was looking for the same thing. There is one thing you might want to consider. The NEW Nintendo 3DS XL (2015) has a slightly different screen than ones found on the original Nintendo 3DS XL. It uses IPS which allows for superior viewing angles. When you move your head from side to side to engage the face tracking 3D this helps with color reproduction. I could not find any screens that were positively for the NEW 3DS XL. Could you tell me how broken the screen is?

Broken doesn't stand a chance.

You can't find them at a regular store like Walmart or GameStop because that would be considered buying a "third party" item. If it's broken you'd could order it from E-bay, Ifixit.com or send it in for a repair.

P.S Try checking amazon periodically, they have screens but they may not be the same ones.

I have the same issue so i have the theory that we can use a regular 3ds xl upper screen but i dont know if thats true. The two parts look very similar and are of the same size but i dont know if anybody has tried this. If you try or have tried this please let me know the results.

The older 3DS XL upper screen will not work in the *NEW 3DS XL.

It has a different ribbon connector for the 3D

Yes. if you can replace it with one of old 3ds xl

You cannot use the regular 3DS XL screen as a replacement for the New 3DS XL. The small ribbon cables that come off the side for the 3D slider are different. I have tried and it won't work.

The only place I've been able to find a replacement is getting one on eBay that was pulled from another New (2015) 3DS XL. They are pricy, $50 used :(
