The WineRed/Burgundy Nintendo DSi XL
The Nintendo DSi XL (Japanese: ニンテンドーDSi LL Nintendo DSi LL) is the third redesign of the Nintendo DS after the DS Lite and DSi. The DSi XL is only a slight redesign of the original Nintendo DSi and was made with the same hardware. Its main new features are a larger 4.2 inch screen and new colors. The system was released in Japan on November 21, 2009 in the colors WineRed/Burgundy, DarkBrown/Bronze, and NaturalWhite. It was released in the US on March 28, 2010, on time of Nintendo's "release in the first quarter of 2010" promise.
It was made to rival the PlayStation Portable in size and offer options to elderly players. According to Nintendo, the system was made to give players a different option to the Nintendo DSi, similar to the Game Boy Advance SP and the Game Boy micro compared to the original Game Boy Advance.
Preloaded on the internal memory for the Japanese DSi LL is the DSi Browser, Flipnote Studio, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math, and Meikyou Kokugo Rakubiki Jiten, a dictionary program. The European release includes the games Dr. Kawashima's Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition and Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function alongside the DSi Browser. The North American version includes the DSi Browser, Flipnote Studio, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math, along with the Photo Clock.
It is also capable of downloading and playing DSiWare. Like the DSi, there is no slot for Game Boy Advance cartridges, disabling the ability to use Pal Park and dual-slot mode in the Generation IV games.
