Nintendo DSi XL coming to UK on 5 March

It may have been available in Japan for some time now, but Nintendo has finally let us in on when we can expect to get the mega-screened DSi XL in Eur

Launching across the continent on the same date, you’ll be able to get your mitts on the larger handheld from 5 March.

Packing two 4.2-inch screens, sizing up at 93% bigger than those on the old DS Lite, you can also expect the camera seen on the original DSi XL and a bigger stylus – supposedly for better control.

The DSi XL will come packing Dr Kawashima’s Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition, and the Dictionary 6 in 1 with camera function, as well as the DSi Browser for hopping onto the internet via a wireless connection.

Prices are yet to be announced, but here’s hoping there’s not too much of a premium added on for the extra screenage. Will you be buying the XL, or will it flop like the PSP Go? Check out our unboxing pictures and let us know what you think to it below.
