Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Before the 3DS Game Card Case… ⊟
We carried our portable games around like this. Or we just left those plastic cartridges loose in our bags. How did you carry yours around?
It’s rad that we can now fit 18 3DS games in a slightly larger space than what we’d need to hold four Game Boy cartridges back in the day. Props to Kombat Kat for the pic.

Animal Crossing 3DS XL pouches on Club Nintendo ⊟

You can get either a Light Blue or a Pink Animal Crossing-themed 3DS XL pouch from Club Nintendo for 500 Coins. That’s a lot of points. Not as much as the Super Mario Accessory Box, though, which will set you back 700 U.S. Coins.

Or you can spend your coins to buy Kid Icarus of Myths and Monsters (Game Boy), Number Battle (DSiWare), Yoshi (NES), or Bonsai Barber (WiiWare) from the eShop. That last game is a really strange but curious release developed by Zoonami and Martin Hollis — you know, the director behind Rare’s GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark!

Gachapin Accessory Update ⊟

Can you believe it’s been a year since I posted a Gachapin accessory? What have we even been putting on this website? Well anyway, let’s get back to business.

Here’s Cyber Gadget’s Gachapin X Mukku Silicon Cover for 3DS XL and Protection Sheet for Wii U GamePad. One day I’m actually going to watch some of their show so I know something non-accessory related about the characters, but I’ll never stop posting these things.

I’ll never stop.

Persona Q 3DS XL case ⊟

Really digging the psychedelic styling of this 3DS XL case by Sega! I’m not sure how Persona 3 + Persona 4 + Etrian Odyssey = Austin Powers, but I’ll take it. I also enjoy the lil’ Teddie and Koromaru inside!

It’s ¥‎2,894 yen from Amazon Japan and ships in June. I haven’t seen it on any import sites yet, but I’m sure it’ll show up! Via nintendotweet.

All right, you got me, Famicom earbuds ⊟
They have a built in mic… shaped like the Famicom’s player 2 controller. What an awesome detail! They’re 1944 yen from Amazon Japan, and come from Datel, who has been killing it with the retro accessories. Via Miki800.

Famicom/Game Boy pouches for 3DS XL ⊟

Datel has followed up its Retro Face Pouch and Game & Watch style 3DS cover with these two 3DS XL cases. Not really feeling the Game Boy style case, but that minimalist-ish Famicom is great!

Both ship in April from Play-Asia, for $22 each.

Still want this Bravely Default 3DS XL case ⊟
Much like Bravely Default's collector's edition, these cases are no longer available on Amazon, and I'm very sad about this all. At least it looks like there are a couple of them on eBay.
Lots of Bravely Default posts popped up on gaming sites today, which is a good thing since a lot of you who ordered the game online are still waiting for it to arrive (hopefully this doesn’t happen to your order — or this nightmare scenario). Here are some of those links:

Official Ace Attorney 3DS XL cover ⊟

This blue cover features a “Phoenix Wright’s Suit” motif and an “Objection!” graphic on the back, and it ships in March from CapcomUSA. Y’all thought I was going to say Japan, didn’t you?

Capcom Japan did use a similar design for a 3DS pouch, but a $20 case is a lot easier to swing than a 3DS game limited edition set, especially across regions! So will you take the case, hurr hurr?

Put your 3DS in a Luigi hat ⊟

If you want to go into 2014 sporting a fresh style for your 3DS – specifically, my style, or I guess Luigi’s style, which is also my style in this instance – you can do so thanks to Play-Asia.

The retailer is taking orders on this Luigi hat 3DS pouch, which is made only for Club Nintendo. Play-Asia expects them to be in stock on Jan. 13, and charges $29.99. I believe it used to be 450 Coins on the US Club Nintendo site back when it was available.

Custom painted 3DS XL Animal Crossing case ⊟

Hand-painted by Etsy seller Derilyn, this vegan leather case emulates the look of the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL, while holding up to eight tiny carts! The version shown is for the 3DS, but she makes them to order for 3DS XL, PS Vita, and 2DS as well!

Oh my gooness, more Slime items ⊟

Need more Slime for your 3DS XL? Finally – FINALLY – Square Enix has made a Slime stylus compatible with the 3DS. Unfortunately for 2DS/3DS owners, it’s sized for the XL. It’s available in blue, grey or orange and comes with a matching cleaning cloth.

Other new Smile Slime goods: the 3DS Card Case (blue, orange) and a 3DS XL pouch (blue, black). They all ship on Feb. 6 from Play-Asia and I want every single one of them.
