Nyko’s Power Grip Pro, the first third-party 3DS Circle Pad Pro accessory. This thing is important because Nintendo’s official accessory is super hard to find – although that fact suggests that maybe it won’t be necessary for many games.
Unlike the official model, this $30 accessory also includes an extra battery pack, which promises “up to 3x the playtime.” Nice! It’ll ship in October, just a few months after I bought this other Nyko battery. :(
Midnight Purple 3DS releasing on May 20 with Mario Tennis Open. Nearly two years after Nintendo teased gamers with a purple 3DS display system (and a gold version, too!) at E3, the company is releasing it to stores.
It will retail for the usual price of $169.99, and will appear at stores on the same day Mario Tennis Open hits (a Sunday). This is the fifth color we’ll receive in the States, after Cosmo Black, Aqua Blue, Flame Red, and Pearl Pink — we’re still waiting on the Ice White edition that’s been on shelves in Europe and Japan for months now.
