The Nintendo 3DS XL has finally arrived in North America, where it will cost you a couple of Benjamins (that’s $199.99 for the uninitiated), and it goes one up over its Japanese and European brethren considering how it will include the missing AC adapter. As the name of the Nintendo 3DS XL suggests, this handheld console will come with a larger display as well as a better battery life, with a copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 to get you started right out of the box.
GoNintendo has one word of advice for you though – it would bode well for you to perform a backup of your 3DS SD memory card before you perform a transfer over to the new Nintendo 3DS XL, as users who did not do that did report a permanent loss of eShop content and save files, which are major bummers considering the number of hours you might have possibly invested into your game(s) by then. Good thing content can be re-downloaded again.
