The Nintendo 3DS is back and bigger than ever, literally.

The Nintendo 3DS XL’s main display screen gets super-sized to 4.88 inches, up from 3.53 in the original 3DS. That’s a whopping 90% more screen real estate. The bottom touchscreen also gets upgraded from 3.02 to 4.18 inches. And since you’ll be playing that much longer on your jumbo screen, Nintendo also extended the battery life. Expect up to 6.5 hours of play time with 3DS titles, and up to ten hours with DS titles.

Available in either red or blue (with silver also being an option in Europe).
