In probably the biggest (literally) news from this morning's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo has announced a super sized version of their newest handheld. That's right, Nintendo is bringing a Nintendo 3DS XL to North America. While the design is similar to the old 3DS (you know, except for the 90% bigger screens), the lack of a second slide pad is extremely noticeable. Not all is bad, the handheld supposedly has a better battery life than the original Nintendo 3DS. I'll take that any day of the week.
You can buy a Nintendo 3DS XL on August 19 for suggested retail price of $199.99. Pricier than the Nintendo 3DS, but still less than the original launch price. Check out the box art and another stylish image below:
