3DS XL Announced, Extra Charges May Apply

The Nintendo 3DS XL was announced last night during the latest Nintendo Direct. It sports  a less sexy look, better battery, higher-capacity SD card and 90% larger screens. In Japan and Europe it will not include a charging adapter...

Nintendo claims many users already have compatible 3DS and DSi chargers. It would appear that Nintendo were joining an ever growing number of hardware manufacturers (see mobile phones) who are not including chargers, instead using standard adapters that can be used in a multitude of devices. Well, it would seem that way if Nintendo used mini/micro USB adapters instead of a proprietary one.
