Introduction to the DSi XL Games List

The DSi XL has been out for a few months now, and it really has proven immensely popular. This has caused a lot of people to start searching for DSi XL Games. Well, I have some good news and bad news for you folks, there are no specific DSi XL games, in fact most games are still Nintendo DS compatible!

Do not dispair though! The larger screen of the Nintendo DSi XL makes it perfect, and in fact better, for some existing Nintendo DS games!

A lot of games which appeared on the DSi required you to do fiddly moves with your DS Stylus, and read incredibly small text. The Nintendo DSi XL eliminates this problem. For that reason my DSi XL Games hub will focus on DS Games which I feel benefit, and are enhanced by, the DSi XL's larger screen and well poised DS Stylus.

If you are looking to buy a Nintendo DSi XL, or want to find out more about your DSi XL, you can read more at my DSi XL Review!

So lets get this show on the road, the top ten best DSi XL games, suited towards the larger screened console. Whether you like puzzles or adventure, I will have some great DSi XL games here for you on this top ten list!
