This week Nintendo announced the 3DS will no longer be an only child. This summer Nintendo will be releasing the 3DS XL (on the right), a larger version of its sibling. Along with being bigger overall, screen real estate goes up by 90%. The XL’s top screen is 4.9 inches and the bottom screen is 4.18 inches (but from what I have read, the actual resolution on the screens is supposed to be the same as the original 3DS). According to Nintendo, the XL has longer/better battery life and will come in white, red/black, and silver/black.

The Nintendo 3DS XL will cost $199.99 (here in the States) and will be released alongside New Super Mario Bros. 2 on Aug. 19.
