3DS XL charging cradles sell out at Club Nintendo



Earlier this week, Club Nintendo had teased that multicolored 3DS XL charging cradles would be available; each cradle would come in five different colors with a Club Nintendo price of 500 coins. Within a hour of its initial release, the charging cradles were officially sold out. No word from Club Nintendo on whether the multicolored 3DS XL charging cradles would again become available. But given the popularity of another Club Nintendo product that sold out in minutes (the Nintendo 3DS game card case), we should be seeing this offer pop up again in the near future.

Were any of you able to pick up one of the five multicolored 3DS XL charging cradles? If so, tell us in the comments below.

Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.


  1. I was refreshing the pages every 5-10 minutes since noon Central, and I never even saw it appear as Available. Very mad about that.

  2. I had also been refreshing my browser. The product sold out before it was even available. WTF Nintendo? …I’ve got coins to spend here…

  3. Same here guys. So pissed.

  4. I now right. I was really pissed I didn’t get a blue charger but I was able to get a white one.

  5. I was able to grab a red one. Only the blue (the one I wanted to match my blue 3DS XL) was sold out at the time. That was at about 1:30 according to the email confirmation from Nintendo.

  6. Never appeared available for me. So pissed about it. I had been refreshing all day

  7. I was at school at the time, I woke up early and it wasn’t out but after school the were already sold out

  8. I missed one as well! Holy cow, Nintendo! Anticipate demand for Pete’s sake! I’m optimistic they’ll return, though. Still…I really want something ground-breakingly cool to come to Club Nintendo to stay for once! I can’t handle the stress anymore…

  9. I got a blue one !! Yeah!!

  10. I didn’t manage to get one.
    I was refreshing all morning before I had to work and wasn’t able to check until my lunch break. My friend told me it was already sold out when it first appeared for most of them. As if a ton of people with ample amounts of time on their hands waited around refreshing repeatedly until it popped up.

  11. I got lucky I got me a green one but when the server freaked out I order one but when I check my order and coins it was two so I contacted Nintendo and got it fixed fast. Me <3 Nintendo and I do feel bad for the club members that didn't get one and I know this will happen again but everyone knows trying to get something that is limited to one day on anything including the internet is a bad idea and needs to be extended to a couple of days.

  12. Scored a white one to go with my Red XL πŸ˜€ Easy to find in the dark on the nightstand πŸ˜‰
