NEW NINTENDO DSi XL CONSOLE ARRIVES THIS WEEK!

3rd March 2010– This week sees the launch of the new Nintendo DSi XL. With bigger screens and a wider viewing angle, you will be able to experience your favourite games like never before when the Nintendo DSi XL, which has already been enjoyed by many people in Japan, launches across Europe on 5th March 2010.

The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL are 93 percent larger than those of the Nintendo DS Lite model and the wider viewing angled screen enables you to share your game play with friends and family.

The new Nintendo handheld is launching in two colours– wine red and dark brown, with a glossy sheen on top and matt finish on the underside that provides excellent grip when resting on a table or other surface during gameplay.

The new console also comes pre-loaded Nintendo DSiWare software: A Little Bit of...Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: Arts Edition and Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function, as well as the Nintendo DSi Browser, which enables you to easily access the internet where ever a wireless Internet connection is available. Nintendo DSi XL will also come with an additional larger pen-like stylus that allows for a more comfortable grip and enhanced ease of use when playing games that utilise the Nintendo DS touch screen
