A big year for the Nintendo 3DS system is about to get even bigger, as Nintendo has confirmed that the recently revealed Nintendo 3DS XL console will launch across Europe next month. A new version of Nintendo 3DS with ninety percent larger screens, the new system will create even more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of videogames and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.
Nintendo 3DS XL features an updated form factor and will be available in Silver + Black, Red + Black and Blue + Black. The new system’s battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4GB SD card, which owners can use to store content such as downloadable games and videos from the Nintendo eShop. With upcoming titles such as New Super Mario Bros. 2 being available as digital downloads as well as boxed retail products you will be glad of the extra space.
Even with the addition of the bigger screen, Nintendo’s aim was to still make the system available at a reasonable purchase price. Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included. The Nintendo 3DS XL launches on 28th July 2012, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles.
