Nintendo confirms new big screen DSi console

DSi LL with 4.2 inch screens to launch in Japan in November

Nintendo has confirmed it is to release a new version of the DSi with larger screens in Japan on November 21.

Rumoured earlier in the week, the company officially announced the console at a press event held in Tokyo.

The console will feature two 4.2 inch screens – a 93 per cent increase on the screen size of the DS Lite - reports Kotaku.

It will be targeted at gamers who want to use their console for browsing the internet and display reading intensive software in a bigger font and retail at JPY 20,000 (USD 220), compared to the current DSi's price of JPY 18,900 (USD 208).

The DSi LL will come bundled with two touch pens and three pre-installed DSi Ware titles – two brain training games and the DS Easy Dictionary. It will come in dark brown, wine red and natural white colours.

Nintendo has confirmed the console will launch in Europe during the first quarter of 2010.
