    So would you get one if you could customize your 3DS? Or would you stick with your warranty, and use skins? Just curious, because I haven't seen many 3DS Replacement cases out yet and wanted your opinions on them. Me personally, would not install one as my warranty would be void, and I risk the chance of breaking my 3DS. Of course, if a very awesome housing like the one below I'd grab it.

    I was about to ask the same.

    Anyway, I'd probably keep with original case, so as not to void the warranty.
    But surely if the above IS real, and you replaced a black case for a zelda one then if you took it back they wouldn't be able to tell. (Well, at least not until they open it up after you leave the shop. [​IMG] )

    When my warranty ends I'll start modding my 3ds, changing the cases.

    It's not real - it's a fan mock up. Here's the artist's gallery.

    I'd LOVE to see one like that, though. To answer the question though - no, I haven't seen any replacement cases, but if it's one like that, I'd gladly take it.
