Nintendo Rumored to Announce New 3DS at E3 on Tuesday

While Nintendo’s already spilled the beans on the Wii U Pro Controller and the new social tie-ins for Miiverse, it might still have a few things up its sleeve for its E3 2012 press conference tomorrow at 9 a.m. PST.

Japanese news agency Nikkei recently reported that Nintendo will be revealing the Nintendo 3DS XL, which does for the 3DS what the DSi XL did for the DSi. It’ll feature a beefier screen at 4.3 inches, an improvement over its current 3.5 inch screen.

Other details about this rumor are scant. If this rumor proves to be true, I hope that the 3DS XL will feature a second joystick, removing any need for the bulky eyesore that’s the Circle Pad Pro. All we can do now is wait for tomorrow to see if this rumor will be debunked or not.
