It really makes us wonder why Nintendo even bothered to send over a DSi XL to US press the day before Nintendo Japan’s 3DS announcement less than 24 hours later. Yes, I know the DSi XL has been available in Japan for quite a while, but I’m just saying.

Details are skant, but the 3DS will offer gamers a 3D experience on the next-gen handheld device sans glasses. Further details will be made available at this year’s E3 in June. We do know that the 3DS will be backwards compatible with DS and DSi titles. It won’t be in the market until sometime before the end of the fiscal year ending March 2011.
