In terms of the damage, the extra-large 3DS is set to cost around R2,349 (RRP).
We do know that the 3DS XL will come with a 4GB SD card in the box, and will be available in blue, red or silver. However, an AC adapter will not be included as Nintendo expects a majority of its new owners to be upgrading from an existing Nintendo handheld.
