SAN FRANCISCO - Nintendo will bring its latest dual-screen handheld video game system to the United States at the end of March, the company said on Wednesday.

The Nintendo DSi XL will go on sale in the U.S. on March 28 for $189.99. The device features larger screens than the DS models currently on the market.

The DSi XL is already available in Japan.

Nintendo, maker of the Wii, is the leading vendor of both home and handheld video game consoles in the U.S. According to industry tracker NPD, Nintendo sold around 420,000 DS units in January.

Rival Sony sold around 100,000 units of its PSP hand-held device in the month.
