Club Nintendo (of America) to add colorful Nintendo 3DS XL charging cradles on Halloween


038-Club Nintendo Colorful 3DS XL Charging Cradles

Although Club Nintendo has offered fans some really awesome stuff in the past, I can’t help but admit that the rewards service has been suffering from a bit of a drought for some time now. The Pikmin 3 tote was a nice addition, but I tend to prefer practical items that work with my hardware, such as the Nintendo DS Lite sleeve from a while ago and the Wii remote holders, which are still available (thankfully).

Point is, I remember a time when scrolling down through the list of Club Nintendo rewards took a lot longer than it does now, both because there were more options and because said options were all compelling and worth taking a closer look at.

So, precisely due to the lack of variety on Club Nintendo, I’ve been optimistic lately that something big will hit the roster of prizes. Though not as “big” as I was hoping, the Nintendo 3DS XL charging cradles that are slated to hit the Club on Halloween day can be nothing but welcome. They will come in the five colors shown above and cost 500 coins apiece. Gamer beware, however: this prize has a limited quantity, so scare one up ASAP if you’re dead set on owning one.

Personally, I intend to redeem some coins for one of these: having owned an original 3DS before swapping for a red XL, I sorely miss the convenience of simply placing the system on its cradle to charge it. Anyone else feel the same way?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. All over it. Which color goes best with the Red XL?

  2. Also, what time on the 31st do these become available?

  3. @Norman I have a red XL, and I’ve also been wondering which color will look best with it. I’m actually leaning toward red, strangely. If you visit the official Club Nintendo site and click on the news story for this, it scrolls through pictures of systems sitting in the different colors, and the picture of the red XL on the red cradle looks really appealing to me. As for when on the 31st these come out, I’m not certain. It’s also unclear how long they will last. In the past, Club Nintendo offered official soundtracks of Ocarina of Time 3D to those who registered the game. These were also limited quantity, and they lasted a little less than a week, if I remember right.

  4. Also, aesthetically speaking, red and green are generally a good combination, much like orange and blue. Of course, the 3DS isn’t just one flat color, so yeah, you might want to check that comparison thingy Holly mentioned.

  5. @BornFlunky I’m considering green also. Only thing is, it would look a little Christmas-y. Still, nothing wrong with Christmas!

  6. Agreed Red and Green Very Christmas-y..
