Nintendo Co., the top maker of video-game machines, will introduce a bigger version of its 3DS handheld player next month in Japan to help revive profit after posting its first annual loss.

The 3DS LL will go on sale in the domestic market on July 28 for ¥18,900, the Kyoto-based company said in a statement Friday. The current model is priced at ¥15,000. Nintendo will start to sell the machine in the U.S. from Aug. 19, where it will cost $199.99 and be called the 3DS XL, spokesman Yasuhiro Minagawa said by phone.
