The latest iteration of Nintendo's venerable handheld just hit stores in Japan, the DSI XL is significantly larger than the standard DS. Most of that extra girth is the result of 4.2 screens-a whopping 93% increase over the existing model (though its important to note that the screen resolution remains unchanged). The new unit also boasts improved battery life, adding about an extra hour on the brightest setting. The Japanese hardware comes with a larger touch pen (in addition to the standard stylus), as well as a number of pre-loaded software applications: the Nintendo DSI browser, Flip note studio, and both DSIWare installments of Brain Age. Specifics regarding the system's North America release have yet to be announced, other than that it will hit here sometime in the first quarter of 2010.
