Nintendo 3DS XL Available August 19 With Larger Screen And Improved Battery

Nintendo 3DS XL will be dispensed in the gaming market this August 19, 2012. This is a cutting-edge 3DS model which was reported during the Nintendo Direct broadcast on the 21st day of June 2012.

It is labeled as Nintendo 3DS XL because it is an enhanced version of the Nintendo 3DS portable gaming system. 3DS XL is much better and brighter than its prototype with virtually 2 times the screen resolution (4.88-inch upper, 4.18-inch lower vs. 3.53-inch upper, 3.01-inch lower on the first 3DS).

The 3DS XL however offers the same glasses-free 3D system, and is anticipated to endure even longer on a single battery charge than the original 3DS, though we won't know for sure until after some great tech sites put the new 3DS XL through battery tests.

Oddly, the new 3DS XL exhibit the same control settings as the 3DS and is short of a secondary thumbpad. We'll be very curious to find whether the larger system of the 3DS XL can accommodate the Circlepad Pro accessory that was released for the 3DS to enable gamers better control over 3D games.

The 3Ds XL is forecasted to sell for $ 199.99, just $ 30 more than the existing $ 169.99 inquiring cost of the base 3DS, though this particular information might possibly suggest a 3DS price downtrend in the looming future.

As a gamer, I'm very decidedly enthused with the release of Nintendo 3DS XL and I'm looking forward to acquire this remarkable gaming device to be added in my collection.

That wasn't the only new product Nintendo revealed at the time of the 20-minute announcement on Thursday.

Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch in addition to the 3DS XL on Aug, with a surge of other new titles for the 3Ds and 3Ds XL including Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, LEGO The Lord of the Rings and more, following shortly after.
