3dsxlNintendo recently announced that they are making the 3DS XL. It’s sort of like the DSi XL, except now it’s for the 3DS.

The details about the system are kind of a mixed bag. On the plus side, the screens are 90% larger, and the battery life has been doubled. On the minus side, the European and Japanese versions of the 3DS XL do not come with battery chargers. So, unless you buy AC adapters separately, you’ll only experience the longer-lasting batteries once. I think I speak for all Europeans and Japanese when I say, “Thanks, Nintendo!”

The 3DS XL costs $200, which is more than the current 3DS. It will be released in America in September, and it comes to Europe and Japan in July.

Whoa, Nintendo announced a release date and a release price? Why didn’t they do that for the Wii U? Speaking of, why didn’t they mention this during E3? Odd.

  1. I think the reason why they announced this now is because they wanted to focus more on the Wii U and explain its capability. To me, this isn’t really a surprise. We all knew it was going to happen eventually, and if I were Nintendo, this wouldnt seem as important as the Wii U.
