Nintendo Announces 3DS XL

Post by FearlessSasuke on Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:40 am

The screen is 90 percent bigger, with larger bottom and top screens. It's called the Nintendo 3DS LL in Japan and the Nintendo 3DS XL in the West.
The top screen measures at 4.88 inches and is 90 percent bigger, while the bottom screen is 4.18 inches and is also 90 percent bigger.

For the 3DS LL, the battery will last 3.5 to 6.5 hours while playing 3DS games (as compared to 3 to 5 hours with the 3DS). The battery will last 6 to 10 hours for DS games (as compared to 5 to 8 hours for the 3DS).

To cut costs, Nintendo is selling the AC adapter as a stand alone, but the 3DS LL will work with current 3DS plugs.

The 3DS XL will come in three colors (White, Red x Black, Silver x Black) and be out in Japan on July 28 for ¥18,900. The 3DS XL will be out in Europe on July 28. In North America, it will be released on August 19 for US$199.99 in Black, Black x Blue, and Black x Red.

Real shame they didn't add a second circle pad, would have bought it, now I'm not sure if want.

the good:
That is amazing, and still cheaper than a Vita

the bad:
I have to buy adapter separately? HOW DARE YOU

no 2nd slider.. but I guess I can see why they did that. All 3DS owners would be pissed, and for good reason, because it would mean their systems are obsolete. Plus it would mean 2nd slider support being put in way more games. Or maybe Nintendo didn't add one because it would seem tacked on seeing as only a handful of games use it. It wouldn't be very Apple.

edit: also we totally got robbed in Nintendo E3 bingo! (those of us who picked the 3DS model revision tile)

It looks more comfortable to hold with the rounded edges, I hate holding a DS/3DS for longer periods. But the picture quality will probably seem worse with the same amount of Pixels on a bigger screen.

Might be a good buy for someone who doesn't own a 3DS yet, but for those who already do I don't think there's much point to wasting money on it.
