DSi XL Gets a Launch Date in Europe

on January 14, 2010 12:26 PM

A release date for the much bigger, adult-friendly, sexy DSi XL (the bigger DSi) has been provided by Nintendo of Europe. Those of you who inhabit these places across the Atlantic will be able to get your gaming on with the system on March 5… you lucky bastards.

For Europe, the system will launch in beautiful Wine Red and Dark Brown colors, rather than the Natural White that Japanese gamers were given for the system’s launch. Aside from the statuesque facade and up-sized design for fat fingers, the DSi XL will come preloaded with DSiWare, which includes Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: Arts Edition, Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function and the Nintendo DSi Browser. Let’s not forget the sexy looking stylus which looks extremely comfortable. Goody!

This is a day when I am not jealous, as usual, of the Europeans. Yes, I am excited for the DSi XL because it fits well in my oversized palms and undersized fingers, but I can wait. Plus, maybe we might get some better colors. Here’s me hoping for Dark Black and Stinky Green.
