Nintendo has announced that DSi XL will be released in the UK on 5 March 2010. The console will be available in two colours - wine red and dark brown - and will come pre-loaded with the DSiWare software Dr Kawashima's: Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition, Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function and Flipnote Studio, as well as the Nintendo DSi Browser.
DSi XL is the fourth edition of Nintendo's DS handheld console and, as you can see from the image to the left, owners will benefit from playing on the two 4.2 inch screens which are 93% larger than those on a DS Lite. The screens also have an improved wider viewing angle so your family and friends will be able to watch you play games easily.
The console comes with a new larger pen-like stylus in addition to the standard stylus. According to Nintendo, this new stylus has been designed to make 'extended stylus gameplay more comfortable to allow better control.'
DSi XL will have the same capabilities as the DSi, meaning you'll be able to download games from the DSi shop, take photos with the in-built cameras before customising them and sharing them online, and listen to and mess around with your music files.
Nintendo has yet to confirm how much DSi XL will cost but back in October 2009, we were told that the retail price is expected to be higher than that of the DSi.
