    Hi guys, it's pretty hard to actually find a case to buy for the 3DS XL.

    Which case did you buy?

    Will cases like this (for DSi XL) fit it?

    We don't need cases this early.

    What does this even mean?

    Anyway, I'm getting this: http://www.play-asia.com/Nintendo_3DS_XL_Hard_Case_Black/paOS-13-71-18g-49-en-70-55h5.html Love Hori products and have had a case, either compact or hard, on all of my DSes.

    I may get the reversible pouch from club nintendo. I have to add my XL to get enough points. Do you think it's worth it?

    Thanks guys, didn't look at Play Asia.

    Picking out of:

    http://www.play-asia...en-70-52ft.html
    http://www.play-asia...en-70-545p.html
    http://www.play-asia...en-70-55h5.html (More likely getting this)

    The Australian site has this and says it's not suited for XL. Other countries might be different. They're the Mario and Luigi caps right?


    I still prefer the DSi XL Flip case, anyone tested DSi XL cases to see if the 3DS XL fits?

    DSi XL are slightly larger than the 3DS XL. http://www.nintendo-gamer.net/2012/07/03/3ds-xl-isnt-as-wide-as-dsi-xl/

    The reversible pouch is actually this one: https://club.nintendo.com/rewards-details/a/18506.do;jsessionid=DDBEE9654F2DE149E804E4DD48EF2968
    Fits the DSiXL so it'll fit the 3DS XL too.

    I would love to get the Luigi hat pouch but it's sold out (and I don't have enough points for it anyway.)

    I came across that image not too long ago. So it's not too bad, 3DS XL should fit existing DSi XL cases.

    It's a shame that Luigi pouch wouldn't fit XL. I would of gone for that too.

    So I have nailed it down to:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Licensed-Ultimate-Travel-Case/dp/B0035LBLVI/ref=dp_cp_ob_vg_h__title_0
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Licensed-Hard-Pouch-Black/dp/B008OGWH3A/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1344548186&sr=1-1 (Better screenshots)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004KPIX1O/ref=s9_simh_gw_p63_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=135ZWTEPCYRRYGPAF64H&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=317828027&pf_rd_i=468294
    http://www.amazon.com/Official-Nintendo-System-Wallet-DSi-DS/dp/B0035LBLW2/ref=pd_ybh_1

    It will be one of those 4, but so hard to decide.

    Decided to buy this from Amazon US, quite happy with it and reviewers saying it fits 3DS XL perfectly:

    Hope this thread is of help to others.

    I'm planning on just using my old dsiXL case for my 3DSxl. I don't ever plan on carrying both of those lunkers around at the same time.
    It'd hurt my back :lol:

    I got this set here (Tesco, UK) http://www.tesco.com/direct/exspect-dsi-xl-essentials-pack-red/209-5153.prd?sc_cmp=pcp_GSF_Gaming_209-5153

    £3.97 and one of the screen protectors fits the bottom screen perfectly.
    The case itself has a pocket for games and a flap that holds games too.

    However, games don't fit in the game box case that comes with it. Only downside.
