Club Nintendo Finally Offers 3DS Game Travel Case January 15, 2014

Club Nintendo is Nintendo’s official rewards program.  By redeeming the multi-digit key codes included with their consoles, handhelds, first-party published games, or downloading titles through the Nintendo eShop, you can earn points that can later be redeemed for exclusive rewards, like T-shirts, posters, or a Pikmin Canvas Bag,

Let’s face it, the Nintendo 3DS is a handheld system, and you’re going to want to be able to take the system and all your DS and 3DS games with you on the go.  While the game carts may be small, I would never consider it a good idea to keep them loose in a travel bag, as there’s a concern they could get damaged by other items during travel.  They travel fine in their original game cases, but those were made for shelves, not bags, and can take up a lot of unnecessary space.  Club Nintendo actually does offer a solution in the form of an official travel case which can hold multiple game carts safely for travel.  However, while the Nintendo 3DS has been out since 2011, up until the last couple of weeks, Club Nintendo’s website only offered game travel cases that fit DS games, 3DS games were not compatible.  I believe that Nintendo actually did at one point offer a 3DS game travel case, but they were scooped up almost immediately and for some reason their stock was never replenished.  Well, earlier this week, that changed.

Club Nintendo is now offering a new travel case which can fit up to 18 3DS and DS game carts.  The 3DS game case is 400 coins and can be ordered in either a Legend of Zelda or Animal Crossing style.  In case you’re curious, a new console is usually worth about 160 coins in value, and new games can range from 40 coins for a 3DS game to 60 coins for a Wii U game.  So if you have a ton of 3DS games you plan on packing up for your next major trip you might want to give that a look.
