    Pretty sure you haven't seen one is because there isn't a simple way to swap the shell on a n3DS XL. They weren't designed with customization in mind.

    Each console has its own advantages and disadvantages, you should of considered those factors before purchase. Customisation or Bigger Screen.

    I just buy a crystal hardcase from nintendo and build a template with Adobe illustration. Make it on paper and put it behind the case, top and bottom.

    Sorry for bad english

    Of course paintings and stickers are possible. But it's just stupid Nintendo has us choose between convenience and look. The same way the only beautiful Wii U (the white one -that's my opinion-) is the one with the ridiculous storage, and the ugly one (the black one -still my opinion-) has a more reasonable storage. Just why ? Why can't we choose our storage and our color for the Wii U ? Why can't we choose the size and the faceplate for the New 3DS ?

    sure, nintendo i think has 'always' had replacement battery covers for their devices online for sale, but still they are not replaceable faceplates, the big3ds just doesn't have them

    probably they didn't think they had much profit or didn't wanted to invest..
    i don't see it as a big deal anyway.. probably you can stamp it if you really wanted to..
