During the conference online Nintendo Direct, the company president Satoru Iwata revealed the improved model of the handheld 3DS, which will be called Nintendo 3DS XL.
The new model of the console will have a larger surface area, increasing the size of the primary monitor of 9.09 cm to 12.4 cm, and the secondary screen of 7.67 cm to 10.6 cm. According to Nintendo, the total screen size increases by 90% in screen space. The bracket itself is 46% higher than its predecessor, which passes 74x134x21mm and the proportions of 235 grams of weight to 93x156x22mm and 336 grams.
The panel battery has also been improved. The new model has a useful life of 3-6 hours play when used with games 3DS, or 5-8 hours when used with games original DS before requiring recharging.
Nintendo 3DS XL will be launched simultaneously in the European and Japanese market on July 28, 2012, with models available in white, silver and black, and red and black. The price should be around 200 euros.
Also note that the fact that the announcement was made at a conference just advertised through the Internet, less than a month after E3 is over, also confirms the company`s management to move away from large trade shows and focus more on events located and organized by Nintendo.
