Nintendo 3DS XL launching in US on August 19 for $199.99

Nintendo 3DS XL launching in US on August 19 for $199.99. The same day, Nintendo plans to launch New Super Mario Bros. 2 .

Yes, the new game device with screens much larger than 3DS(hence XL) will sport a 4.88-inch display on top and a 4.18-inch screen on the bottom.

But there's just one thumbstick (No second analog stick). Don't know of you, but developers demanded a second stick even at the time of 3DS launch, complaining that it limited their ability with the device. To take care of the absence of second thumbstick, Nintendo earlier this year launched the 3DS Circle Pad Pro for $20, which effectively hooks on to the handheld to add a second thumbstick.

The Nintendo 3DS XL, offers the same glasses-free 3D experience as its predecessor, the 3DS( with a 3.53-inch upper display and a 3.01-inch lower screen).

For larger screens, get ready to shell out slightly larger money. Nintendo 3DS XL will be available for $199.99, up from the current 69.99 price tag for the 3DS. However, the 3DS XL will come with a 4GB memory card, to make you Happy.
