You can buy t-shirts for your 3DS now (I wonder if they come in XL sizes?), spotted by OTL. They even have front pockets that you can stuff a cartridge into.
PDP teamed up with Marvel to create this “Kawaii Art Collection” with six different designs, selling them for around $5.99 at local retailer like Target, and for $7.99 through the accessory company’s online shop.
Next up: Men’s polos, dress shirts with French Cuffs, and satin blouses for your handheld.

Scribblenauts Unlimited 3DS case and Wii U pouch — the two PDP accessories we saw hidden behind the GameTablet cover styled after Maxwell’s rooster hat at E3.
Speaking of Scribblenauts Unlimited, here’s a trailer for the 3DS version, which I’m a little worried about. From what it looks like, it doesn’t seem to have the multiplayer support or object editor shown in the Wii U edition. :o/
It doesn’t add much to the tablet, but this Scribblenauts cover for the Wii U GamePad — modeled after Maxwell’s rooster hat — is something I need to own anyway.
And is that a Scribblenauts cover on the left for the Nintendo 3DS? And some kind of fuzzy case above it?

Nintendo 3DS Pull and Go Folio by PDP. This is the 3DS case I’m leaning toward for my own use — though the choice of system case is a personal decision not to be taken lightly. It just looks so useful, with its detachable system case and storage for up to 29 games.
PDP is producing this in blue and black., with a release date of March 17. For more color choices, you might consider the “DS Universal” version, which looks identical but for the DS logo on the outside instead of the 3DS logo. It’ll be released April 21 in pink, green, blue, and black.

It’s kind of dumb to buy a $20 DS accessory kit just for the Mega Man screen-cleaning strap, but now that GameStop has shaved $5 off of the DS Lite Mega Man Star Force 3 kit, it’s … kind of slightly less dumb. But that’s what I do here: talk about bad purchasing decisions that I usually don’t actually make!
The DSi version appears to be sold out online — I can’t tell if it’s been dropped as well.
It’s not an entirely terrible purchase, as it comes with a case, stylus, storage for three games, etc.
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.”
