If anyone is wondering, this fits the 3DS XL as well!
on October 12, 2012
I can pretty much agree with all the other reviews on here. This is a pretty nice case for the money, and very elegant looking as well. It does look sort of like a purse, but that doesn't bother me too much since I keep it in my bookbag when I go around my University.
The main point I wanted to make is that this case will fit the new Nintendo 3DS XL. Since the 3DS XL is relatively new, there aren't many cases out in the market yet, but I heard that some cases from the DSi XL will fit as well. With that in mind, I looked at this case and it fit my needs pretty well. So I took a dive and ordered it, and was I glad I did! This case fits the new device pretty snug, but there is some excess room on the side since the DSi XL is a tad bit longer, but that doesn't bother me too much. The felt padding inside is pretty soft and not too slippery, so it keeps the 3DS XL firmly in place.
On the outside of the case, there are 3 slots for DS games. Since the new 3DS games have a protruding tab, I can't imagine being able to fit 3 3DS games in these slots, but you can probably fit 2, with one DS game in the middle. Hopefully that wasn't too confusing to read and give you a better idea of what to expect.
Overall, I think this case is a great buy. If you have a 3DS XL or DSi XL, do not hesitate to buy this case!
I've been using this case for a couple months now and it's still been great. I actually tested it with 3 3DS cartridges and it fits just as well. The space between each slot has just enough room to not be in the way of the protruding tabs on the 3DS cartridges.
