Nintendo Unveils New DS: The DSi LL

Another tweak to the DS is coming to Japan next month, sporting a larger screen, stylus and pre-installed DSiWare software. It's coming here, too. Nintendo of America has confirmed this new DS, to be called Nintendo DSi LL in Japan and Nintendo DSi XL in North America and Europe, will arrive sometime in the first quarter of 2010 (sometime in January, February or March).

The company released a brief official statement to me about the announcement:

“A new iteration of the Nintendo DSi system will be introduced in Japan on November 21, 2009. To be known as Nintendo DSi LL in Japan, and as Nintendo DSi XL in North America and Europe, it will offer a screen 93% larger than the current Nintendo DS Lite with a better view angle, an additional longer touch screen stylus, and pre-installed Nintendo DSiWare software. The new version will arrive in North America and Europe in the first quarter of calendar year 2010.”

I still haven't picked up a DSi, but the lack of access to DSiWare continues to bug me. It's unclear whether the larger screens will prove useful for a youngster such as myself (as the new DS is aimed at older audiences), but perhaps this will drive down the price of the DSi a bit.
