Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was looking forward to receiving this, since the 3DS XL is one gorgeous handheld.

When the case arrived, it felt sturdy, and upon opening it up, you can tell it's made well, with nice construction and well thought out compartments and pockets.

The main issue, which has been mentioned by other reviewers, is the size of the pocket where the 3DS XL goes. It's just way too big. The case is obviously meant for a DSi XL, which fits *perfectly* in this case. Because of the more curved and narrower build of the 3DS XL, once it's inside the case and you close it, you can hear it sliding all around inside. Doesn't give the user much confidence.

So, right now I'm using it for my DSi XL and the search continues for a good 3DS XL case. Skip this one unless you absolutely have no other choice.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
With the 3DS XL being so new, there are very few case options available. In the past, HORI has done an excellent job with their cases, so we're not sure exactly what went wrong here.

The immediate issue is that the case is too big. I don't mean too big in the subjective sense. I mean it is "literally" too big. You put the 3DS into the section designed for it and it slides around in ALL directions. It's approximately half an inch too big length and width-wise. I would not feel comfortable throwing this into a backpack, knowing my 3DS XL is bouncing around inside its case.

Aside from this, it's a solidly-built case and worthy of 4-to-5 stars. It's just a shame it was manufactured with faulty measurements.

2 stars out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful case! July 26, 2013

I did some shopping around prior to purchasing this case, and all I can say is that I'm very pleased with it! It has a pouch on one side of the case for AR cards, chargers, or whatever else you could want kept with your 3DS. On the outside of the pouch it has individualized slots to support three DS/3DS game cartridges and a stylus. This case comfortably fits a 3DS XL (or a regular 3DS, with extra space around it). The outside is a hard material, and it is smooth to the touch. The inside has to be what feels like some sort of felt material, insuring your system will not be scratched up by the case.

This case is great because I can also fit the chargers I have for my 3DS on one side, or I can fit both my 3DS XL and my girlfriend's regular 3DS (or even my 3DS XL and my Galaxy S3).

Overall this is a great case for anyone looking for a secure and safe place for their 3DS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good case, but not great September 8, 2012

I've had Hori cases for my DS Lite, DSi XL, and PSP in the past, so I didn't hesitate to order this when I got my 3DS XL. As usual, the design is minimal and attractive. The hard case feels like it will protect the system well. The only detriments are what others have mentioned: only 3 game slots unless you want to risk storing them in the loose pouch, and the case is a little bit bigger than I expected.

I was especially surprised by the storage because I had the soft pouch for a DSi XL (this one: HORI Compact Pouch for Dsi XL Blue (Japan Version)), which is basically the same size but has four slots. In fact, I've been using it temporarily while I waited for this to arrive. You may want to consider one of the DSi XL pouches as an alternative, because the 3DS XL will fit. I am usually playing many different games at once, so to be limited in this way is slightly annoying.

The other reviewer who mentioned it is correct, the 3DS XL does slide around a bit inside, so if you're concerned about that harming your system then this is not the case for you. I mostly keep mine at home and take it on the occasional trip, so I'm not as concerned about it.

Solid construction, feels like your 3DS could take a serious tumble inside this case and come out unscathed. As mentioned it comes with a 3 slot carrying sleeve in the top of the case. There is also a pouch behind the carrying sleeve that can store your AR cards and/or loose game cartridges, I was able to comfortably fit 8 games in the pouch portion. It would have been nice if they lined the pouch with more carrying sleeves so the games didn't have to be loose but that is a minor gripe. All in all, this is a great product that I expect to last the lifetime of my system.

Works great. It gets marked somewhat easily, like little indents in the case and tiny marks, but nothing really noticeable and nothing that compromises the protective factor.

Case is perfect for all on-the-go needs. Holds 3 games in slots plus the USB charger i picked up at local retailer. 3DSxl fits well and even has enough room for pen size stylus in same area. Case is durable and resists drop shocks very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Case! 3DS XL fits great. February 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
Quite a few of the older comments mention how the 3DS XL doesn't fit well. That it is too small for the case and ends up moving around. Looks like HORI updated the case. Fits good and also has a strap that holds it down. I bought this case because I was going on a trip and desperately needed something to protect it and was willing to deal with the issues. Ended up being very pleased because the issues others complained about aren't issues anymore. Highly recommend this case for both the quality and the price.

It sturdy and classy. The design is minimal and the protection is about as good as it gets when it comes to semi-hard cases.
