Nintendo 3DS XL Coming to All Regions This Year
« on: June 22, 2012, 12:54:57 AM »

Nintendo 3DS gets an inflation. 

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/30811

The Nintendo 3DS is coming to North America, Japan, and Europe, on August 19 in North America and July 28 for both other regions.

The upsized version, called the Nintendo 3DS LL in Japan, boasts a 90% larger viewing area, with a bottom screen increased to 4.88 inches wide. 

The new version will feature an improved battery life of 6-10 hours, and will sell for 18,900 yen on July 28. The system will cost $200 in North America while the price in Europe is currently unknown. It comes pre-packaged with a 4GB SD card.

In Japan it will come in three color variants, white, red and black, and silver and black. In North America the system will be available in two colors, red and blue. In Europe the system will be available in blue, red, and silver.

We'll post more information the instant it becomes available.

UPDATE: In Japan and Europe, the new model of the handheld will not come with a power adapter with the intention of recycling existing cables from previous DS iterations, but there will be the option to purchase the cable separately if need be. The North American version will come with the adapter included in the box.

Well ****! ****!!
If you shall force your righteous perspective upon others, which in turn requires an effort to understand, would you do the same? Or presumptuously reject theirs to begin with...?

..Which requires no effort on your part.

What else could you say in a complicated world..

Looks like it better matches the WiiU.  I'll get one of these for my wife, then we can play Animal Crossing and NSMB2 together!

I had a feeling that it might not get a second stick. I imagine that they will start manufacturing a bigger circle pad pro. :P: :

I just bought a 3DS today, along with some games and a Circle Pad Pro.  *sigh*  Well, this 3DS isn't available in Purple like mine, so that's something I can take solace in.

The white top and bottom makes it look too much like the WiiU gamepad.

It's kinda odd though.  Bigger doesn't mean better since the resolution is going be the same?  You can get the same results with a $1 magnifier from Big Lots.  Not sure if a larger screen will improve viewing angles?  That might be something otherwise you'll better off with the orginal 3ds unless your eyes are going bad.

18,900 yen = additional $50 so that's going place the 3DS XL around $230 if prices remain the same for the states.

System Settings > Other Settings > System Transfer. You can do this only 5 times though, so use it wisely.

I just don't know if I trust Nintendo to make it quite that easy. ;)

All I wanted was the current 3DS with upgraded specs, a matte finish, better buttons, upgraded battery, and for Heaven's sake, a second analog stick.

All I wanted was a 4DS...

The 3DS just came out a little over a year ago. Give it a few years.
