    Nintendo has announced that the Mario-styled 3DS console will be available to Japanese Club Nintendo members, limited to 3000 units only. Each character-themed is 1000 units each.

    These won't be available for sale. For the participation, all participants receive a free NES game for the console called "Kid Icarus".

    Beside the skeptical "Do they hate us?" :P, I would like to say, I didn't approve of these cases. :P

    I don't know about anyone else, but I definitely wouldn't want one of those for fear someone will comment that I'm "checking under the hood".

    That's a 7000 star prize on Club Nintendo UK actually.
    So was that awesome Super Mario Bros figurine from last year, America's platinum prize.

    I thought they said those were only face plates. If you look at the pictures closely they look like face plates. Plus they barely even match the console. Just ugly.

    I want the Pink Princess Peach one, I'm bound to get lots of girls with that one, I'll become the next Hugh Hefner with one of those. xP
    J/k, but seriously... They seem to kiddy...


    Lately Europe has gotten lots of stuff that America doesn't get... or will get later... Xenoblade (Wii|Unknown), Tales of the Abyss (3DS|Delayed), Trace Memory R (Wii|Never Released), Last Window (DS|Never Released), Last Story (Wii|Unknown), etc.. The difference is that while the games that don't reach Europe are because there aren't branches of some companies (like Atlus), and other companies have to release them, like Ghostlight does (I actually emailed them regarding the 3DS Devil Survivor and they said they might) which is more complicated than simply passing it off to the branch, while in the US, it's because America themselves don't want it. Lots of Japanese and European games don't reach America because there isn't enough shooting or graphics (an example of what they said as reasons for why some games didn't get there)

    Try again Nintendo, I don't think you made those 3DS' look ugly enough yet.

    Because the EU totally got Chrono Trigger, Mother, Mario RPG, etc. and we totally never have to wait years for localisation and longer for most releases in general.
