Nintendo has announced that the DSi XL will launch in Europe on 5th March and will be available in wine red and dark brown colour schemes.

There's no word on a price yet and so far there's no advice from retailers. The existing Nintendo DSi model retails for around £139.

The DSi XL will come preloaded with the DSi web browser, "A Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition" and "Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function".

The oversized handheld boasts 4.2-inch screens and rejigged internals but is otherwise comparable to a DSi in terms of performance, as we found out in our hands-on with the Japanese unit.

The DSi XL has been available in Japan since 21st November, and sold over 100,000 units during its first few days on sale there.
