Nintendo 3DS XL Charging Cradle Coming to Club Nintendo Rewards Next Week

Posted on October 25, 2013 AT 12:10pm

The newest Club Nintendo reward in North America is a charging cradle for 3DS XLs, Nintendo revealed on Twitter.

According to the company’s super-terse tweet, the charging cradle will be available in limited quantities started October 31. The 3DS XL charging cradle will cost Club Nintendo members 500 Coins, or $19 for regular schmoes who purchase it from the online Nintendo Store.

If the pictured included with Nintendo’s tweet is accurate, the charging kit will be available in red, blue, green, white, and yellow. Although the Nintendo Store doesn’t offer up a choice in color, and seems to only be selling the black model.

The 3DS XL features 90% larger screens than the regular 3DS and improved battery life over the original model. The charging cradle, Nintendo is quick to point out, is not compatible with regular 3DS models—only 3DS XL.
