    Second wave of New 3DS cover plates ⊟ Ahhhh, Jibanyan and KK Slider cover plates for Japan! The camo designs are pretty nice too! The Yokai Watch/Jibanyan one doesn’t release until December 13, but all of the others — as well as the two Kawaii designs — come out on November 21. Oh, and a quick update on the ...

    Tiny Cartridge 3DS - - 4 readers - This New 3DS cover plate is made of actual wood ⊟ When I first saw this Cover Plate for the New 3DS (both release in Japan on October 11), I presumed it was some kind of faux bois shenanigans to make the case look chic while keeping it affordable. Nnooo’s Creative Director Nicholas Watt, though, got his hands on the plate at Australia’s EB Expo and found that it’s made of real ...

Considering that cover is double the price of others, I’d hope some part of it is actual wood! IMPORT New Nintendo 3DS White / Black (3DS XL Blue / Black) …

    … Look who’s hiding on the New 3DS box ⊟ One of these yellow dots on the New 3DS’s wildly patterned packaging is not like the other! Much thanks to @Graphure for the photo! I just got my New 3DS, and I’ll be posting photos and thoughts on our Twitter before putting up a review for the imported hardware.

  • 12 Awesome Star Wars Posters, From Collector's Items to Concept Art

    … The franchise needs no introduction now, but a long time ago in this very galaxy, even Star Wars had to entice an audience into the theater. A new book called Star Wars Art: Posters collects some of the most iconic—and stylistically diverse—broadsides from A New Hope through Revenge of the Sith, plus a bit of Clone Wars and limited edition…

    … Smash Bros. 3DS themes for Japan ⊟ Out November 8 for 200 yen each. Three of the home menu themese use technically the same art, but I dig the icons on the red one. That one matches the limited edition 3DS LL/XL, by the way, and the white theme matches the New 3DS cover plate that was just revealed for Japan! Mario and Pikachu vary drastically…

    … and found that it’s made of real wood (the other colors with identical designs are made of plastic)! The accessory’s hiked-up MSRP of around $30 ($37 at Play Asia), compared to most of the other cases priced around $15, is another giveaway. I wish I never found out about this because now I’m conflicted about which cover plate to buy. To be honest…

    … My 3DS will never be this cute ⊟ That’s because I’m skipping these Nyan covers for 3DSes/3DS XLs, waiting instead for the Kawaii Kisekae Plates to dress up a New 3DS. You can make your system this cute, though, by picking one up in Pink, Black, Sand Circle, Tabby, Striped Tabby, or Tortoiseshell at Amazon. Credit to MintyReasons for the pic! BUY…

    …Steampunk Game Boy ⊟ So many custom Game Boys on here lately — floral Game Boys, Ninja Turtle game boys, and even Darth Vader Game Boys. This one comes from Elise Siegwald and does not look like something that’s comfortable to hold, much less play. Pretty neat accessory if you ever find yourself on an airship, though.

    … Transparent Nintendo 2DSes for Europe ⊟ Remember that prototype 3DS XL with transparent casing that Nintendo teased us with in an Iwata Asks session? That never actually released as an actual product, but the platform holder has made something similar with the 2DS for Europe, creating clear Red and Blue versions of the budget handheld. Nintendo…

    … I wish the NES 3DS XL looked like this ⊟ As much as I love the packaging for the upcoming NES 3DS XL, the actual design on the GameStop-exclusive system (an NES controller slapped on the lid) is disappointing, especially when you compare it to the NES GBA SP or Japan’s Famicom-colored systems. Kungfuquickness agreed and created this alternative…

It's filled with great touches, like a table of contents that looks like a video game overworld map and icons that tell readers what kind of genre each game belongs to. But it's that cover—a laser-engraved slab of wood—that really puts the work of Christian Ernst, Robin Soyka and Alexander Venus over the top. Really makes you want to hold it in your hands. …
