Nintendo 3DS XL Unboxing

The 3DS was, lets say, less than successful for Nintendo but everyone loves a trier and now Nintendo are hoping to win our gaming hearts with the Nintendo 3DS XL.

Upping the 3DS’ extra dimensional screen real-estate by 90 per cent, Ninty has confirmed that its 3DS XL range is to see the handheld’s 3D enabled top screen increased from 3.58-inches to a hefty 4.88-inches whilst the input controlling lower display being upped from 3.02 to 4.18-inches.

With the screens coming in for an upgrade the whole PS Vita rival has increased in size with the 235 gram standard 3DS to be increased to 336 grams for the XL model.

Despite this size increase and the introduction of larger, power-loving displays, the Nintendo 3DS XL is to boast an improved battery life with the three hour lifespan seen on its smaller sibling being increased to 6.5 hours.

Set to be available in black, blue and white colour schemes from launch, the UK release date has been set for July 28th.

On price, Nintendo has failed to offer a British RRP for the oversized portable console but retailers have made the device available for pre-order with Play leading the way with a listed £179.99 Nintendo 3DS XL price tag.
