By Updated on

We have some good news for those of you looking to pick up one of the new Nintendo DSi XL consoles now, as Nintendo has just confirmed a European release date for the snazzy handheld.

As reported from Eurogamer, the XL will be launching on European soil on 5th March. The new 4.2-inch models will be available in a choice of either red wine or dark brown colors and will come pre-loaded with a few bits of software to get you started.

At the moment, theres no word on an official price for the XL. Eurogamer points out that the original DSi retails for £139, so expect it to be still pretty expensive.

Will you be picking up a DSi XL? Or does the price put you off completely?
