    Pre ordered an australian New 3ds xl, and I definitely want to get a mugen battery for it. Can I use the current mugen battery made for the regular xl, or will I have to wait for mugen to make a new version?

    Thought maybe someone who already has a japanese new xl might know. Google and even searching here have not helped, and the mugen site itself doesn´t mention anything yet either.

    I would like to know the same thing, I am hoping that they kept the contact points the same, and that the Mugen battery will work.

    Can anyone confirm?

    Even if it did fit, the extended battery cover would not fit would it?

    Damn. Good point. Could be the cover has the same dimensions though.

    Would be too convenient. Wonder how long they´ll need to finish something.
