During the Nintendo Direct broadcast last night, IGN broke news confirming the rumors behind a brand new installment in the 3DS line: the 3DS Big Mac XL!

Differences between the 3DS XL and the original 3DS include:

  • 90% larger screens on both the top lid and bottom
  • Increased battery life (3.5-6 hours compared to the 3DS’ 3-5 hours)
  • Two colors in the United States, red and blue.
  • Comes with an AC adapter and a 4GB SD card

It costs $30 more than the original 3DS.

As a current 3DS owner, all I can say is that…I’m confused.
