    I need one that lays flat, like all the other ones do from past 3DS consoles. I don't want a vertical one my cats can easily knock over off my desk. Does one exist, first or third party? I scoured Google but came up empty-handed. Given that this is Nintendo's flagship 3DS now in the USA, I would have thought a flat cradle would be commonplace, but they just don't seem to make one.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'm also looking for one of these myself. But you can only find the regular sized ones (since they came with the consoles back then)
    Obviously the XL can't fit in the normal one.

    The picture on the left is an o3DS and the picture on the right is an N3DS.
    I don't know if they have the charging port in the same place, though.

    The charging port on the O3DS XL is on the top-right, the N3DS XL is top-center.

    I really don't like the vertical charging design.

    Funnily enough, I might actually have to do that, just because my cats are assholes. :/

    They didn't release flat ones for n3ds, only for o3ds..

    It could be possible to swap the internals from the stand to the flat one.. Might be worth getting used one of each via eBay and trying..
