As others have said, strong smell, but that will probably fade quickly—just a product of manufacturing. However, mine came differently made than the product image or other customers’ images: the middle flap that has space for games will only fit four games, because instead of the game-storage elastics being sewn to open in the middle, they are sewn to both open to one end. That is, instead of [ ] they are ] ]. That means that it can only effectively store four games, not eight. Anything on the top end pokes out so much it will scrape again brace against closing the container. It will hold the container open by itself—I’m afraid of what will happen if I force it closed.
Otherwise, plenty of space for the New 2DS and charging cable.
