Nintendo 3DS goes XL
Nintendo has announced that its 3D portable gaming system, the 3DS will be released with 90 percent larger screens. The Nintendo 3DS XL will be available in South Africa at the end of the month.
Nintendo has revealed plans to launch Nintendo 3DS XL, a new version of Nintendo 3DS with 90 percent larger screens. When it becomes available in South Africa on 28 July, the new system will create more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of games and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.
Nintendo 3DS XL features an updated form factor and will be available in Silver + Black, Red + Black and Blue + Black. The new system’s battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4 GB SD card, which owners can use to store content.
Even with the addition of the bigger screen, Nintendo’s aim was to still make the system available at a reasonable purchase price. Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included. This can be purchased separately.
Nintendo 3DS XL launches on 28th July alongside New Art Academy, a new entry in the Art Academy series. The larger screens of Nintendo 3DS XL mean users will have even more room to unleash their creativity while enjoying art lessons that teach real-world drawing and painting techniques.
The Nintendo 3DS XL will retail at RRP R2,349 and New Art Academy at RRP R399 – both available at selected retailers.
