    Limited Mario Red edition (though you can get a replacement shell on ebay that)

    Me and my friend have Mario Kart XLs. It has no special design, it's just blue and comes with Mario Kart 7 preloaded. Was on 4.1 or 4.2 when we got them.

    3rd party shells don't interest me much. Except I have a huge soft spot for this http://imgur.com/a/Occls would do anything for one :(

    Thanks, but it seems tedious to apply & the majority offered are plain colors ( http://i.imgur.com/pWZbd01.png ).
    I just want a list of original in-box 3DS XL handhelds.
    I guess only three have unique designed shells with 4.5 or lower firmwares.
    I was hoping for more. :(

    It's not really tedious, but its up to you I guess.

    BUT once you swap the top and bottom faceplate, your 3DS XL would be exactly like the Japan-only limited edition mario red.

    Is there a specific website or something that lists all replacement shells available for purchase?

    You go off topic suggesting shells, as to suggest that a wide variety exists when in fact that is not the case. You & I know that, yet you link me to Google?

    Woah there. You're looking for a 3DS XL that is limited edition and <4.5. I'm suggesting an alternative method that you can do so. I did not say that there are other alternate limited edition shells other than mario red.

    You could always buy an LE, swap the shell, and then resell it. Loss would probably be a similar price to buying a housing, and you could get a digital game. /shrug

    At any rate, suggesting google search implies that there is more than mario red which can be found via searching. Not to mention its rude in general to mask a url which links to google.

    Anyway my thread has been answered so no further discussion is needed.
    Thanks users redkeyboard & jackddd for your posts.

    I recently purchased and installed that exact Red limited edition shell (Just top and bottom parts) onto my silver Australian Console. The quality is nothing short of amazing. Completely indistinguishable from the original shell quality wise.

    Yeah but that's not what Wev is looking for.
