Nintendo Announces 3DS XL

During the Nintendo Direct presentation this evening, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced a new 3DS model, the 3DS XL.

The 3D screen will be 90 percent bigger than the previous 3DS, however the system inexplicably still contains only one analog stick. Guess that Circle Pad Pro was a one-and-done deal, huh?

The system launches August 19th in North America for $199.99.
