DSi XL Gets Metallic Rose, AKA Pink, as a New Color

Posted by at 3:16 pm on September 9, 2011

The super-sized model of the DSi, AKA DSi XL, is getting a new color this month, Nintendo today announced. And like the existing colors; Bronze, Midnight Blue and Burgundy; it will cost $169.99.

Some people find it odd that Nintendo has the DSi XL costs the same as a new 3DS following the price drop last month. The XL was previously priced at $189.99 and, along with the regular DSi, had its price slashed by $20 last September.

The brand-new color is officially called Metallic Rose . It will be available on Sunday, September 18 and comes with several pieces of pre-installed software: Flipnote Studio, Brain Age Express: Math, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, and Photo Clock.

Nintendo’s press release mentions there are still reasons to buy a DS. Kirby: Mass Attack is out one day after the new system on September 19, and Professor Layton and the Last Specter was recently confirmed for a U.S. release on October 17 (complete with the 100-hour RPG London Life).

That is nice and all, but DS games are playable on 3DS, so unless you have some real need for the DSi XL’s bigger screens — at 4.2 inches — there’s not much of a reason to go for the XL over a 3DS.
