    Hello GBAtemp! I'm infynnad, and this is my first post (if that matters).

    Anyways, I've been refurbishing DS (Lite, i, i XL) systems, and helping fix friends' systems. Now I want to help get Ice White 3DS systems in the US. I've been looking for housing in white with the US text on the bottom, but can't seem to find any white housing at all.

    The only thing I can really do is get an Ice White Japanese 3DS and swap it's shell with one here from the US. There's 2 problems with that: The Ice White will play US games but will have Japanese text on the shell, and I don't think demand for a Japanese 3DS is high in the US right now. (I don't wanna get stuck with an extra 3DS.)

    So with that, I'd like to reach out and ask for your help in my search for an Ice White shell (US text preferred on it, but it isn't required). I don't mind if I have to buy in batch as I've ordered housing like that before. This also isn't limited to White, if you find any non-US 3DS (XL) colors I'd be happy to bring them to the US.

    tl;dr I need help finding a site that sells White 3DS shells/housing

    Thank-you everyone :)

    Oh no problem, I'm interested myself in getting a replacement shell, but I'd like a clear one if anyone makes them, like the old GBC and GBA shells that nintendo initially sold. I haven't seen any though.

    Everyone always asks me for those on the DS Lite, haha. I'll let you know if I ever find a clear one for the 3DS.

    Ah, I'm realizing that that site is wholesaler only, I don't think they do personal transactions. But I could be wrong. If nothing else, its at least evidence that the shell you're looking for does exist.

    It may be wholesale. It seems like they're willing to sell to anyone, though. I signed up and they said once I'm verified I can order. Also, they have a history of selling only 1 of certain items, so it may be possible.
    I'm still looking around, either way. No harm in finding alternatives haha.

    Edit: It looks like they are wholesale, but I sell and repair, so that's fine. Now to find a retailer, for the sake of the internet.

    For future reference or anyone searching, this site has white housing for the 3DS. It's wholesale, though.
