Nintendo reveals and dates the 3DS XL

New enlarged handset coming next month

Nintendo has announced the release of a brand new 3DS XL due later this summer.

The 3DS XL has screens that are 90 percent larger, a much improved battery life over the original 3DS and it comes bundled with a 4GB SD card instead of 2GB.

It will be available in three colours, Silver, Blue and Red but there is one catch. Nintendo explained in order to keep the price down the 3DS XL will not come bundled with a charger which could prove to be a bit of a turn-off for those thinking about picking up a new 3DS.

The 3DS XL will launch in Europe on July the 28th the same day as New Art Academy and Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations, Alive!.
