Super Famicom pouches for PS Vita 2000 ⊟
So far, they’re only on Amazon Japan (via Miki800); hopefully they’ll end up on Play-Asia soon for accessibility. While it might seem weird to have cross-retro-pollination with a Nintendo theme on a Sony console accessory, back around the Super Famicom days they almost became the same thing!
Fantastic Animal Crossing 2DS case ⊟
You don’t see many outstanding Nintendo 2DS cases, so I’m happy to feature this one from Beandog Labs. Look at all those pockets for your tiny cartridges!
This line of 2DS/3DS/XL/Vita custom cases can get a little expensive with prices starting at $50 (Beandog also has sells cheaper pouches), but it includes a microsuede interior to make sure your systems are scratch-free, hidden magnetic closures on the corners, a small ring on the side for charms, your choice of art featured on the design, and the option to have your name or other text printed on the inside.
So much Monster Hunter 4G crap ⊟
With Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate announced for Japan, here comes an overwhelming monster-sized assortment of tie-in items. Literally tied in (as in attached to the game) is the limited edition, which comes with four figurines and a random plush when purchased from e-Capcom.
There are also way too many accessories, like screen cleaners, SD cards?, stickers, cases, earphones, this treasure chest looking thing… Anyway, go ahead and throw all of your Monster Hunter 4 accessories in the trash, because there are 4G items now. Via Ruliweb.
Kirby 3DS accessories are so adorable ⊟
My finger is hovering over the “add to cart” button on that pouch featuring Kirby, Whispy Woods, and friends. Or it would be if I weren’t writing this. The card case, hard covers, and the other Nintendo 3DS pouch are pretty great too. Via NintendoTweet.
Classy Famicom-style iPhone cover ⊟
The iRetro-FC iPhone 5/5s cover is based on an April Fool’s Day joke from this year, which purported to be a kit for playing Famicom carts on your phone.
But despite the reduced functionality, the actual item looks really nice! It’s a tempered glass phone cover with a pixelated Apple logo, Famicom red and gold color scheme and some authentic-looking extras.
Not sure how to get one of these outside of Japan, but SpecDirect is taking pre-orders for 4,000 yen ($40). Via Miki800.

Yoshi’s new 3DS XL cases ⊟
These two cases from perennial accessory manufacturer Keys Factory will be hitting Japan in a couple weeks alongside Yoshi’s New Island's launch there. Play-Asia has both cases for $14 each. Credit to NintendoTweet for the pics.
PREORDER Yoshi's Wooly World, upcoming games
Pre-order the Wii U GameCube controller adapter ⊟
If you want a new GameCube controller right now, or just want some variety for your upcoming Smash meetups, you can also order the white GameCube controller Nintendo made back in the Wii generation (that’s right, this is the third console generation in which Nintendo has produced GameCube controllers). It’s got a 10-foot/3-meter cord, a full meter longer than the stock GC controller.
Not sure how long the cord on the new Smash controller is…
Retro Waterproof Case for PS Vita ⊟
Hey, this makes your Vita look like a Game Boy! It also makes it… waterproof…
It’s $13.99 from Play-Asia, if you want to play some Spelunky in a nice bath and oh man I was joking but actually that sounds really great.
Gametech’s Trigger Assist 3D LL ⊟
"Ugh, the L and R buttons on the 3DS are way too small and compact!" is something I’ve never thought.
But if you have, Gametech is here to help! These things are out next week in Japan. I guess I’ve seen things like this for console controllers, for FPS stuff? Not sure what you’d do with them on a 3DS. But I like looking at them.

Tiny Roundup: Vita Slim accessories ⊟
I went looking for accessories for the new slim PS Vita, and surprisingly there aren’t that many. I mean, there are a million variations on the silicone/plastic shell, but those don’t seem that interesting or useful to me.
Of the relatively short list of remaining options, I’m highlighting the ones that seem most useful. I haven’t tried any of these!
Handle Stand for Wii U ⊟
This thing is so weird and I love it! It’s like the usual Wiimote wheel attachment, except it’s attached to a pivoting base for more steering-wheel-like-ness, and it works with the GamePad!
The obvious use here is Mario Kart 8, but for some reason I think it would be cool to have the GamePad on a pivoting stand on a table, like a fixture, for casual use – Netflix and whatever. Cool, but basically less functional than having it out of a stand, I guess.
Anyway, it ships May 28 for $50 from Play-Asia.
2DS hardware deal and a cool accessory ⊟
This Hori 2DS Hard Pouch is pretty simple, but it holds 9 games in the unit, and seems useful! It’ll be available July 1 for $15.
While I was looking around on Amazon, I noticed a decent 2DS hardware deal, for you to fill your 2DS case with: the crimson/Pokemon X bundle is $133 (third party, fulfilled by Amazon).
