The newly announced “3DS LL” will be released in North America on August 19 as the “Nintendo 3DS XL.” The new redesign will cost $199.99 and come in either red or blue, with a 4GB SD card. The release date lines up exactly with New Super Mario Bros. 2. European gamers will get the system July 28, in red, blue, and silver color variants. Like in all other regions, the 3DS XL will come packed with a 4GB memory card.
The 3DS XL has a 4.88 inch upper screen, for a 90 percent larger viewing area than the 3.5-inch top screen of the current 3DS model. The bottom screen is also larger, at 4.18 inches.
In case you were worrying the 3DS XL will be getting its own Circle Pad Pro and that little stand thing still works. Big relief, I know.
