Nintendo have announced plans to launch the revised Nintendo 3DS XL across Europe on July 28th, and later in North America on August 19th.
In a slick, updated form factor, the handheld, which features 90 per cent larger screens, will be available in Silver + Black, Red + Black and Blue + Black colour variants.
Not only will the Nintendo 3DS XL be bundled with a 4GB SD card, but the system’s battery life is also improved over that of the original model.
It won’t, however, include an AC Adapter. Such a move deemed to be an attempt to allow the system to be “available at a reasonable purchase price.”
“No other hand-held entertainment experience compares to the fun of Nintendo 3DS,” comments Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime.
“With the launch of Nintendo 3DS XL on Aug. 19, consumers will be able to enjoy the great lineup of current and upcoming games on an even grander scale. Plus, Nintendo 3DS XL gives owners even more real estate on their screens to enjoy entertainment applications like Nintendo Video and Netflix.”
