Nintendo announces extra large 3DS LL with 488inch top screen

Folks holding their breath for a “3DS Lite” might want to exhale — Nintendo has decided to go a different route. Company head honcho Satoru Iwata revealed the 3DS LL this evening on Nintendo Direct, featuring a 4.88-inch and 4.18-inch top and bottom screens, respectively. The new hardware adds over an inch to the current 3DS’ display, and ships with a 4GB SD card, to boot. The oversized handheld doesn’t adopt the Circle Pad Pro’s second analog input, however, retaining just a single thumbpad on the console’s port side. Japanese gamers will be able to pick up a 3DS LL in white, as well as in two-tone red / black or silver / white on July 28th for ¥18,900 (about $235). In the US, of course, the handheld will be rebranded as the 3DS XL, just like its predecessor’s supersized variant, hitting Yankee shores (in red and blue, no less) on August 19th for $200.
