The new 3DS XL has been revealed via the Nintendo Direct broadcast. The 3DS XL is to feature a 4.88 inch screen which will give you an extra view area of 90%. The below touchscreen will be 4.18 inches.
In addition the 3DS XL will have longer battery life and ship with a 4 gigabyte memory card.
Judging by early images the 3DS XL doesn’t include a second circle pad. If this is the case it is a huge over-site on Nintendo’s behalf as there seems to be more than enough space below the action buttons.
The 3DS XL (or LL as it’s branded in Japan) will launch in three colours – White, Red and Black and Silver and Black. It will cost 18,900 Yen and $199,99 in Japan and North America respectively. It will launch on the 28th of July in Japan and the 19th of August in NTSC territories. The European release is also set for the 28th of July however a South African release has yet to be confirmed. But as always we will keep you up to speed with the latest developments.
