Japanese newspaper Nikkei reporting large screen version of handheld unveiling is due

E3 2012: Nintendo ‘set to reveal 3DS XL’

Nintendo may be planning the announcement of a large screen 3DS at this year’s E3.

That’s according to Japanese newspaper Nikkei, which has reason to belive a 4.3 inch screen version of the Nintendo handheld is to be unveiled this week. By such a measurement the device would be approximately 1.5 times its current size.

It adds that the hardware could hit Europe, America and Japan by this summer, as reported via Andriasang.

Having previously released an oversized version of the DSi handheld – the DSi XL – it would seem feasible that Nintendo would do the same with the 3DS.
