Nintendo Outs Huge and Bulky 3DS XL

Like the Nintendo DSi before it, Nintendo reveals a large-screen version of the 3DS handheld console. The Nintendo 3DS LL, which will most likely renamed 3DS XL in North American, features a 4.88-inch top screen and a 4.18-inch bottom touch screen.

The new device adds over an inch to today’s 3DS’ screen and comes with a 4GB SD card. Despite the larger size, however, the 3DS LL does not come with an extra analog stick. Expect the device to become bulkier with a compatible joystick pad should it comes out.

The Nintendo 3DS LL will be available beginning July 28th in Japan in white, as well as two-tone red/ black, and silver/ white. Suggested retail price is 18,900 yen (about US$ 235). The Nintendo 3DS XL, meanwhile, will be shipped to North America on August 19th with a $ 200 price tag.
