The new Nintendo DSi XL - already out in Japan, where it's known as the DSi LL - will be released in Europe in March, Nintendo has announced.

It will be available on March 5, on both the continent and in the UK, in red and dark brown.

The Nintendo DSi XL is essentially a Nintendo DSi, only with much larger screens and a bigger, more comfortable stylus. It was released in Japan in NOvember 2009, and will be out in the US sometime this quarter.
