The '''Nintendo 3DS XL''' ('''Nintendo 3DS LL''' in Japan) is a handheld system by [[Nintendo]]. It was first announced on June 21, 2012 via a Nintendo Direct broadcast. In a similar manner to the [[Nintendo DSi XL]], it features a larger screen as well as a greater overall size than the original [[Nintendo 3DS]] model. The Nintendo 3DS XL screens are 90% larger than the Nintendo 3DS model (top screen: 4.88 in - 124&nbsp;mm, bottom screen: 4.18 in - 106&nbsp;mm), and the battery life of it is increased by 86%, while the weight of it is increased by 46%. However, instead of replacing the 3DS, the Nintendo 3DS XL was sold alongside the 3DS. It has the biggest screens to ever be on a Nintendo handheld.<ref name="Specs">{{Ref web
