Looking for a charging cradle for your Nintendo 3DS XL? Then look no further than Club Nintendo on October 31st, as Nintendo has announced that new colored 3DS XL charging cradles will be available for a limited time. These cradles will fit a 3DS XL exclusively, so if you own a regular size 3DS you’re out of luck.

For now the colors available appear to be red, blue, green, yellow and white. Which one will you be picking up?

Thanks Zorpix!

  • This is a great idea, as my 3DS never leaves its cradle when it’s not in use. I’m glad XL users can take advantage of it too! 😀

    No prob! :3

    Noooo I just bought a Pikmin key-ring because I found nothing else interesting to buy with my stars but this is just the best ! :'( Any idea of the number of stars we need to give to have one of those ? 🙂

      500 coins

        Seems like a low price to me considering the other stuff we can get, don’t you think ? What’s your information source ? 🙂

        • chocodino

          he said coins [japan & usa currencys], while stars are used in pal territories

          • Natsirtt

            Oh ! Thanks for the tip, I didn’t notice that.
            So I guess I should hope those products are coming to the EU store before even thinking of the number of stars needed 🙂

          …I don’t remember.

      At least you can get the keychains…… but for these, as for starts, if they are 500 coins for us, you can probably expect somewhere like 1800-2500 stars

      • Natsirtt

        Thanks for the approximation 🙂 I hope It’ll rather be 1800 stars 😉

    The colours….so many. Do people buy these consoles thinking what are they going to wear with it?

    • Arthur Jarret

      Late reply, but… NO – it’s to fit my look!

      I’ve got a black XL for when I get into a fight, a red one when I’m feeling flustered, a yellow one for when I’m sick, a blue one when I’m feeling cold, a green one when I haven’t washed in days, a white one when I haven’t been outside in ages due to the wii u, an orange one after falling asleep in the tanning salon, a pink one to match the dress I wear on weekends…

  • If we get it in Europe as well I think I’ll go for either White of Blue fits best in my grey 3DSxl

  • Fred

    If not for the Nerf case on my XL I’d be getting one!

    Is This just a cradle or does it actually charge the DS because im thinking about buying the new zelda 3DS and it don’t come with a AC adapter so this would actually save me a few quid and be really useful also this is completely off subject but i think nintendo are being really cheap with the whole digital copy thing i got a wind waker wii u and it was bundled with WW download code and the same goes for the new 3DS a link between worlds comes in a code its just really annoying because i swear the last zelda 3ds came with ocarina of time hardcopy?? i dunno lol

    • Pikachief

      charging cradles need the AC adapter to be plugged into them for them to charge the 3DS :/

  • Wiiluigi

    That red one is mine. Glad I saved all my points. These look like charging cradles…if you notice the button on the right inside the cradle that push up the contact points. And since my 3DS with an a/c adapter I’m good. These are cool!

  • Ducked

    Yellow one would go good with my Pikachu 3DS XL

  • Razo_E

    Nice! Always loved the one that came with my daughter’s “reuglar” 3DS.

  • Elitepwnsface

    And i already spent my points on a t shirt….

  • Rocho

    if someone needs some coins before the 31! http://goo.gl/mLBf6W 100 coins x $5.50

  • Jon

    All sold out in about 2 hours…. that’s annoying. I guess I am never going to get rid of these coins.

  • Lord Tywin

    They said it would be available on 10/31. I checked on 10/31 and there was no 3DS XL cradle. I checked midday and now they are sold out. Is this some kind of sick joke?!
