Do you have difficulty managing to somehow squeeze your stylus onto the lower screen of your current DS? Well, that won’t last much longer if you’ve got ¥20,000 (approx. $220) you’re willing to spend on an upgrade to your DS! Early this morning, Nintendo unveiled the fourth member of the DS family in Japan. Introducing the Nintendo DSi XL.
“A new iteration of the Nintendo DSi? system will be introduced in Japan on November 21, 2009,” according to a statement from Nintendo released to Kotaku. “To be known as Nintendo DSi LL in Japan, and as Nintendo DSi XL in North America and Europe, it will offer a screen 93% larger than the current Nintendo DS Lite with a better view angle, an additional longer touch screen stylus, and preinstalled Nintendo DSiWare? software.”
You can expect to be seeing the DSi XL in North America and Europe some time next year.
