I’m sorry, 3DS pig decal ⊟
I’m sorry you were born into this cruel world, where people will judge you without knowing you, call you names, mock you behind your back, and do everything to tear you down. It was selfish of us to bring you into this world, knowing what you’d have to face.
Just know we’ll stand beside you for as long as we can, until you’re strong enough to rise above it all. Don’t ever let anyone convince you that you aren’t beautiful, or that you can’t do anything you want to. I love you, 3DS pig decal.
The photo and DecalGirl come from Vanessa Delfin. God bless.

Custom Ace Attorney 3DS XL cases ⊟
Another slick production from Tony Sarkees, an actual attorney! I wonder if many lawyers have played Capcom’s series, like, “Finally, a game about my life.”

A Tiny case for an XL system ⊟
I’m always amazed when anyone likes our site enough to make stuff like this. Like, I’ve been scared to venture into producing and selling Tiny merch (with the exception of our Tiny Sticker Pack) because I’m convinced no one wants to actually spend money on our stuff.

That Pokémon Tretta 3DS accessory is HUGE
So I’m watching this trailer for Pokémon Tretta Lab, the 3DS game based on the Japanese token-based arcade title, and up until now its bundled token reader looked like reasonable pieces of plastic you attached to the handheld. But then the video flashes the back of the accessory for a few seconds, and holy moly, Nintendo is about to release the Kraken up in this piece.
PREORDER Pokemon X and Y, upcoming releases
Here’s that Scribblenauts Unlimited 3DS case up close.
The 3DS version of the game shipped out this week, and those who preordered it at GameStop received a rooster hat, a pencil stylus, and a silicon case for their handhelds — sorry XL owners, this one’s only for the standard 3DS.
Scribblenauts Unlimited hits Wii U this weekend without any extras unless you count the Nintendo characters.

Secret Scoop! Compare the 3DS Expansion Slide Pad peripheral’s real size in these mock-ups blended with actual consoles/structures (click for larger images).
It’s kind of big, isn’t it?
The Sanrio Little Twin Stars Jewelry Stickers for DSi. This is the “Heartful Kiki and Lala” version, but it also comes in a few other Little Twin Stars and Hello Kitty varieties.
"Make your Nintendo DSi super kawaii with Twin Little Stars Jewel Sticker," Strapya’s product page says. "No one has such a cute DSi. You’ll be asked where you got the DSi." It’s hard to tell which is cuter, these stickers or Strapya’s text.
The DSi Hard Case Clear by AClass. This 1180-yen ($12) case adds storage to the DSi for three games and two SD cards. It doesn’t seem to fatten the system too much, either.
No idea at the moment how to get your hands on one of these, unless you can figure out Amazon Japan.

You might have heard a little about the SmartStylus last week — PDP was showing it off at the Game Developers Conference on the Expo floor, inviting gamers and developers to try out the oversized accessory.
The SmartStylus communicates with an RF transceiver plugged into a DS’s GBA slot, and will rumble or flash LEDs on its base, reacting to your performance in a compatible game. A second version is in the works with a “more sophisticated RF link”, as well as audio features and motion input capabilities with a 3-axis accelerometer.
I played a few demonstration levels with the first model, one of which asked players to pop balloons, shaking the accessory whenever the wrong balloons were touched. Another more interesting stage challenged players to guide the tip of the stylus through a maze with their eyes closed; the SmartStylus would rumble, whenever a wall was hit. None of the games seemed like “killer applications”, but I can see some potential in the accessory.
That potential wouldn’t mean much if the SmartStylus doesn’t work with Nintendo’s new system due to its reliance on the GBA slot, but I talked to PDP for a hot second, and they told me that the transceiver is small enough to fit into a standard DS cart, a solution they’re currently investigating.
The stylus uses a single AAA battery and is currently pending Nintendo approval. PDP adds that SmartStylus effects are “easily inserted into [any] game by using simple APIs provided in the SmartStylus SDK from PDP.”

Safecare’s Homework First accessory.
Before the Health Control Game Timer, there was Homework First! It’s like The Club, except built for the NES’s cart slot instead of a steering wheel, and designed to keep children off your system instead of criminals.
"Yes, an antidote to Nintendo has arrived," said the Seattle Times in January 1990, praising the curative gadget.
Homework First was sold for $22 through Sharper Image stores and Spiegel catalogs, where it was billed as a counteragent to the video game sickness, finally enabling disapproving mothers to “control when and how much time [their] family play Nintendo.” It was even endorsed by the Council for Children’s Television and Media!
Safecare also advertised the lock as an accessory ensuring the safety of saved games, blocking your kid brother from pushing in a cart and deleting your previous save files.
