The new hardware adds just over an inch to the current 3DS' display, and includes a 4GB SD card, too. The new 3DS LL features just a single thumbpad on the console's port side. Japanese gamers will be able to scoop up the 3DS LL in white, two-tone red/black or silver/white on July 28th for 18,900 (about $235).

Across the pond in the US, it will be rebranded the 3DS XL and will arrive on August 19th for around $200.
