3DS XL Released in Europe
After announcing the 3DS XL, Nintendo has been generous and has released it in Japan as well as Europe. Japan usually gets new Nintendo releases earlier than other regions, so Europe is lucky since North American gamers won’t be getting their hands on the 3DS XL until August 19.
The revamped 3DS is priced at Ł179.99 in Europe and will be $200 in North America, compared to the original’s Ł149.99 and $169.99. The specs boast a top and bottom screen at 4.88 inches and 4.18 inches along with 4GB of memory. In comparison, the 3DS has a 3.53 inch top screen and 3.02 bottom screen with only 2GB for storage. The battery life of the 3DS XL is also at 6 and a half hours instead of 5. Launch colors include red, blue and silver. Source 1
