Nintendo has upgraded its 3DS handheld to sport a screen nearly twice as big as the previous model amid hot competition against smartphones and tablets that are wooing people away from dedicated gaming machines. The Kyoto-based maker of the Super Mario games and Wii home console said Friday, June 22, 2012, the Nintendo 3DS LL, called 3DS XL in overseas markets, goes on sale in Japan and Europe July 28, and in the U.S. from Aug. 19. It will sell in Japan for 18,900 yen ($236) and $199.99 in the U.S. It did not give a price for Europe. (AP Photo/Nintendo Co.) EDITORIAL USE ONLY
