Nintendo DSi XL to launch in US
New York - Nintendo plans to launch the latest version of its popular handheld video game system, the DSi XL, on March 28 in North America.
The XL will cost $190. It will have two screens like its predecessors, but as the name suggests, the device and screens will be much larger than the currently available versions. The XL is already available in Japan.
Nintendo also says it's launching Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii console on May 23 and Metroid: Other M on June 27.
In addition, Nintendo will sell e-books, namely 100 Classic Books, for the DS portable devices for $20. The 100 works will include pieces from such authors as William Shakespeare, Jules Verne, Jane Austen and Mark Twain. 100 Classic Books launches on June 14.
