Nintendo 3DS Gets 90% Bigger Screen

Nintendo is planning on launching a 3DS handheld console with a screen that is 90% bigger. The company announced the move in a video on the 22nd of June, and hopes to have the console available in Australia and New Zealand by August 23rd.

Bigger screens usually translate to a cut in battery life, but Nintendo allege the battery life "outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS."

An included 4GB SD card will allow users to store content (music, movies, pictures) on the 3DS, in addition to games they download from the Nintendo eShop.

Nintendo will also be releasing Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 18th of August, available as a digital download or the traditional retail package.

In Australia, the 3DS XL will be available in Silver + Black, Red + Black, and Blue + Black for $249.95.
