Nintendo announces 3DS XL
During this week's Nintendo Direct Conference, the gaming giant has introduced a larger version of their 3DS handheld.

Dubbed the 3DS XL, the console has a large 4.88-inch stereoscopic 3D top screen and a 4.18-inch second screen. The current (first-gen) version of the handheld has a 3.53-inch top screen and 3.02-inch bottom screen.

Additionally, the company is throwing in an extended battery which will give up to 6.5 hours of playtime per charge, depending on the brightness.

Nintendo will include a 4GB SD card, as well, larger than the current 2GB card offered.

All software from the 3DS is compatible and hardware included the charger.

The 3DS XL will hit retailers on July 28th in Japan and Europe and on August 19th in the U.S. alongside New Super Mario Bros. 2.

    So what will be the best hacking tool(like r4) for it? I want to play GB-GBA games and DS-3DS games off it,ect.

    Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy!
    Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
