Nintendo Supersizes 3DS

Nintendo is going big with its handheld 3DS gaming system, hoping more people will take it home.

The company in August will debut the Nintendo 3DS XL, which will feature screens nearly double those of the traditional 3DS. The system, which the company says will have a better battery than the original 3DS and come bundled with a 4GB SD Card, will retail for $199.99.

“With the launch of Nintendo 3DS XL on Aug. 19, consumers will be able to enjoy the great lineup of current and upcoming games on an even grander scale,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, in a statement. “Plus, Nintendo 3DS XL gives owners even more real estate on their screens to enjoy entertainment applications like Nintendo Video and Netflix.”
