REDMOND, WASH. — Nintendo of
America plans a March 28 U.S. launch
of its DSi XL handheld system, which
features larger screens than its predecessor
and e-reader capability.
For e-reading, Nintendo will offer 100
classic books on June 14 at $19.99 for
The XL’s dual screens are 93 percent
larger than the Nintendo DS Lite’s dual
screens, and the new ones provide a
wider viewing angle. The new system,
Wi-Fi-equipped like the Lite, launches
in both burgundy and bronze and will
come with two pre-installed software
titles, Nintendo DSi Browser, and the
Flipnote Studio app.
Nintendo DSi XL will also come with
a larger pen-like stylus that allows for a
more comfortable grip, Nintendo said.
