Look at what we have here !! A new Nintendo DSi called the DSi XL !! with a much bigger screen compared to the regular DSi !! This by far a the best thing Nintendo have done as a lot of people I’ve spoken to about the DSi were not very impressed with the slight increase screen size from the NDS Lite. Now with the introduction of the XL you can see a huge difference and now you dont have to squint so much when playing on a small screen.
Check out the official press release from Nintendo after the break :
