The lights are on
If you've been saving your Club Nintendo coins, Nintendo is getting ready to pry them from your fingers. The 3DS XL is finally getting its own charging cradle, but you'll need to be a loyal fan in order to get one.
The charging cradles come in five bright colors: white, blue, green, red, and yellow. Your power cable stays plugged into the back of the cradle, which means you can pick up your console and go without fumbling.
A limited number of these will be available on October 31, and they'll cost you 500 Club Nintendo Coins. It's not clear if you'll be able to choose your color yet.
Our TakeI love the 3DS charging cradle and was disappointed that my 3DS XL didn't come with one. I'll be refreshing this page like crazy on Halloween, as I've got just enough to get one of these. It's a small convenience thing, but one I appreciate.
