Redmond, Wash. - Nintendo of America said its DSi XL handheld system launches March 28 at a suggested retail of $189.
The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL are 93 percent larger than those of the Nintendo DS Lite model, providing a more vivid and engaging play experience, the company said. The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL also feature a wider viewing angle.
The new system launches in both burgundy and bronze colors, and comes loaded with pre-installed premium software Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters; Brain Age Express: Math; and Photo Clock, as well as two free applications: the Nintendo DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio.
