I'm actually tempted to get two faceplates. I want the wood one, but I think it would feel horrible. The felt one, however, will likely feel nice. So felt for the bottom, wood for the top.

And from that website, it looks like it changes the BGM for the 3DS as well, didn't know that. Awesome stuff, for about 1 pound.
Yeah, be interesting to see what the pricing is like outside of Japan though...
"Custom Nintendo 3DS themes available now in Europe for only €4.00/£2.99!"
:shakehead:heh:

Hopefully not, but I wouldn't be surprised. :hmm:

Aren't some of them free with the faceplates? For example, you would get this free with the wood faceplate:

Well, I don't like any of those themes enough to shell out a quid.

Too many Mario themed ones, but that's not surprising.

 

Guess I'll be waiting for more in the future.

I really expected the themes to be free, as it is a rather rediculous thing to ask money for.

I never expected nintendo would do that.

To be fair, themes on Playstation also have a small charge. I'm haooy enough with the pricing, although I don't think i'll buy any myself (was hoping you could tailor your theme by having folders themed with Mario blocks (for Mario Games), Triforce for Zelda etc).

 

Anyone else have this intermittent problem with their 3DS XL (or ofiginal 3DS for that matter) - occasionally, but becoming more regular the 3DS resets the clock and date to 01/01 00:00. There seems to be no pattern I can think of, open the 3DS from sleep state and it's reset.

Can't say I've ever had this problem...

Some of them will be free though, while some of them will be paid for...

Just seen that Nintendo shop has the 2DS for £89.99 (the new transparent ones). I'm so tempted it's untrue.

 

Given that I'm getting Smash for 3DS I could then get a free game (I'd choose Kirby) which in theory if you were buying Kirby, the console is like £60. Seems like a bargain!

I'm guessing you got the e-mail from Nintendo too that had this on offer:

That's a slightly better deal though it's £40 more. Personally I wouldn't buy a 2DS(I'd hold out for the New 3DS if I was to get one) but it might tempt some other members. Besides they don't deliver to Ireland so thanks for that Ninty. :p

 

Or you could try to win a Nintendo 2DS.

 

NINTENDO UK CO-PROMOTION WITH PETITS FILOUS FRUBES

 

Nintendo UK team up with Petits Filous Frubes for Super Mario Promotion

 

1st October, 2014 – Nintendo UK today announces a co-promotion with Yoplait which will see some of Nintendo’s most iconic characters take centre stage on the packaging of the popular Petits Filous Frubes snack.

 

With Mario, Luigi, Toadette, Baby Peach, Waluigi and Wario featuring individually on the Vanilla Flavour and Bowser Jr., Peach, Baby Luigi, Baby Mario, Super Star, Koopa Troopa, Daisy, Yoshi, Bowser, Goomba and Boo on the Strawberry flavour – everyone will have a chance to have their favourite character join them for lunch!

 

With each pack of Petits Filous Frubes, you have the chance to win one of 100s of prizes from Nintendo 2DS systems to Nintendo goody bags!

 

To see if you’ve won, just enter the secret code on the inside of your Petits Filous Frubes Super Mario pack at http://supermariofrubes.com/.

 

Launching at the start of October and available in stores across the UK, the promotion will run until 30th April 2015.

Looking at the terms and conditions Nintendo are being fairly stingy with the prizes:

 

8. A total number of 236 prizes are available to be won.

9. Prize pool value:

(i) 211 units of Mario goody bags (containing a stationery set,a Super Mario mini figure, stickers, key ring and hat);

(ii) 11 units of the Nintendo 2DSTM game console;

(iii) 11 units of the Super Mario Bros. 2TM video game software;

(iv) 1 unit of the Mario Kart 7TM video game software;

(v) 1 unit of the Super Mario 3D LandTM video game software;

(vi) 1 unit of the Mario Party Island TourTM game software;

 

Not exactly breaking the bank there now are we Nintendo? About £2,000 worth of prizes if even and that's retail value, it's even less when you factor in the manufacture price. Geez, loosen the purse strings a little. Wouldn't be putting a lot of faith in winning a substantial prize. Terms and conditions eh, you gotta love em. :)

Now I've just gotta wait and see whether or not they're pulling any shenanigans with EU game compatibility...

Okay that seems crazy cheap, what's the catch?

 

The catch is that Mightyape won't ship to the UK :(

I've gone for the Simple Red theme for now, to match my red XL. :)

Absolutely loving the music on the Hanafuda theme though, and even more so on those black & white patterned ones. Dat easy listening. :love:

Don't like the look of any of those though, unfortunately. :( Really hope they use that music on a better looking theme sometime.

I can't see myself ever buying any of these themes, but I do like the look of the Hanafuda one :) I bet that these would make for nice pre-order bonuses or give-aways in the future though ;)

 

For now, I've gone with the bog standard yellow one. Looks pretty nice with more or less everything that appears onscreen :)

Yeah, they all have some really nice music (seriously!? How many composers do they have lying around just pumping out all these great tracks for bloody menus and themes! It's insane just how many tracks appear for the tiniest of things!). Interesting that the Mario and Zelda ones are not actually from the games that they say they're from, but rather are all new arrangements that are based off the ones from the games that they say they're from (all except for the SM3DW ones though, those ones ARE just taken from the original game).

I went with the yellow one, nice. Then I caved and bought the brown felt one, really like it, it was actually the barbershop rendition which made me go for it in the end :) Now rearranged my screens so the icons don't go over the character icons. Done!

Is there any way to properly preview each theme - or at least the music - via the theme shop? I can't find an option... Would be helpful.

Makes it easier to share homescreen layouts now.

Also, I like how you can no longer accidentally open the 5 menu buttons at the top (Game notes, Friends List, Notifications, Browser & Miiverse).
