Nintendo says that they are to relase new Nintendo DSi LL from Oct. 21 at 20,000 JPY(about $220 USD). Three color variations of "Dark Brown", "Wine Red" and "Natural White" are to be provided.
Reflecting users' demand for a larger display, Nintendo DSi LL has 4.2" LCD. It's 193% larger than former Nintendo DS lite's display so it becomes easy to play games with someone side by side. Larger dislay also contributes to easy reading with larger fonts. Angle of view is also improved.
In addition to emcased touch pen, extra stylus with 129.3mm(about 5") length will be attached.
Three softwares are pre-installed, such as "Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters", "Brain Age Express: Math" and "DS Rakubiki Jiten". Pre-installed software may vary from regions.
