DSi LL Coming To Europe First Quarter 2010

New console to be rebranded as the "DSi XL"?

Wondering if the recently confirmed DSi LL is coming to Europe? Wonder no longer.

Website VG247 has pressed Nintendo Europe for an answer regarding this hot question and the company has confirmed that the new machine will be hitting The Old World in the first quarter of 2010.

Nintendo Europe has also hinted that the console will be called DSi XL here. Perhaps the firm has realised that "DS-iLL" sounds a bit silly?

Here's the official line, direct from a Nintendo UK rep's mouth:

Nintendo today confirms that a new Nintendo DSi XL console is launching in Europe in the first quarter of 2010. The retail price of the Nintendo DSi XL is expected to be higher than that of the Nintendo DSi. Further details will be released soon.

The Japanese version of the console is set to launch at the end of November, retailing for 20,000 Yen. There's been no word on the North American release, but we would imagine it will be at the same time as the Euro one - if not sooner.
