Durante una conferenza stampa presentata da Reggie Fils-Aime, presidente della divisione americana Nintendo, è stata annunciato l'arrivo di una nuova versione della console portatile 3DS.
3DS XL, questo il nome della nuova console, presenterò due schermi del 90% più grandi rispetto alla versione originale, ma nonostante ciò la batteria avrà un'autonomia migliorata, capace di garantire fino a 6.5 ore di gioco.
Le colorazioni disponibili saranno 3: Silver + Black, Red + Black e Blue + Black.
Nintendo 3DS XL sarà disponibile sul mercato europeo a partire dal prossimo 28 Luglio. Negli Stati Uniti la console sarà venduta ad un prezzo di $199.99 in bundle con una memoria SD da 4GB, mentre mancano ancora cifre ufficiali per la valuta in Euro.
A big year for the Nintendo 3DS system is about to get even bigger. In a Nintendo Direct video on June 22nd, Nintendo revealed plans to launch Nintendo 3DS XL, a new version of Nintendo 3DS with 90 percent larger screens. When it becomes available across Europe on July 28th, the new system will create even more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of games and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.
Nintendo 3DS XL features an updated form factor and will be available in Silver + Black, Red + Black and Blue + Black. The new system’s battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4 GB SD card, which owners can use to store content such as downloadable games and videos from the Nintendo eShop. With upcoming titles such as New Super Mario Bros. 2 (launching 17th August) being available as digital downloads as well as boxed retail games you will be glad of the extra space.
Even with the addition of the bigger screen, Nintendo’s aim was to still make the system available at a reasonable purchase price. Because of this, and because so many fans already own a previous handheld, an AC adapter will not be included.
Nintendo 3DS XL launches on 28th July alongside New Art Academy, a new entry in the Art Academy series. The larger screens of Nintendo 3DS XL mean users will have even more room to unleash their creativity while enjoying art lessons that teach real-world drawing and painting techniques.
Also launching on 28th July is Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations, Alive! a Nintendo 3DS game where you can bring your very own creatures to life.
