Nintendo DSi XL to launch in Europe in March

Nintendo has announced a European release date of March 5 for its new design of DS, the DSi XL.

The large-sized handheld launched in Japan in November, selling over 100,000 units in its first few days and topping the hardware chart following its first week on sale.

Two DSiWare titles will come preloaded onto the console in Europe - Dr Kawashima's: Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition and Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function - and the console will be available in two colours - wine red and dark brown.

The new DSi comes with 4.2 inch screens, which are 93 per cent bigger than the DS Lite screens, and a larger pen-like stylus that is easier to hold - both are geared at making entended gameplay and web browsing easier.

A price for the console in the UK has yet to be announced.
