Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 3DS *XL* Case - Capcom Store

#1NiricPosted 1/29/2013 4:03:59 PM(edited)
Hello fellow Monster Hunters,

Just a heads up to those who wanted to get in on this as quickly as possible.

This is now live and available for preorder on the Capcom Store's website. The link below is to the XL product specific item page on the Capcom store.

http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomus/en_US/pd/ThemeID.1944700/productID.268583100/Monster-Hunter-3-Ultimate-3DS-XL-Case.html

The XL version seemed to be highly requested and will likely be in high demand. I'd recommend preordering ASAP if you wanted to get one.

I've been checking the store regularly through out the day yesterday and today and the product finally showed up on the store. I'm not even sure if they've even announced its available yet through any of their community outlets.

I hope this helps! Just wanted to help out those who were waiting on this and the voting results of Yuri's blog post about the XL case version being in the works.

Good hunting!

Please stop posting threads about this. Bump any of the already existing 10 instead.

Crazy bellringer was right, there's money to be made in a place like this.

Oh. The copper case is actually... copper... When it was up for voting, it looked black. I think that was the main reason it was voted for so much.

Welp, now I can pass on this.

The bronze is the worst of the 3 imo, but I have the regular 3DS anyway (and the blue case for that one looks great).

Yeah I'm not sure. The blog voting picture did make it look like a light grey - and its hard to tell by the picture on the capcom store how accurate that was.

Check out this photo though -- if you've not seen it already:

http://drh2.img.digitalriver.com/DRHM/Storefront/Company/capcomus/images/product/detail/MH3U3dsxlcase_backofbox1.jpg

In the default product page photo makes it look like its got a copper/bronze sheen to it. But it also looks like they may have used a yellow bulb light source for the picture. But if you click that photo it takes you to the alt photo I gave the link for there This photo seems to have it lit by a half white light source.

It looks to me like it will appear as a grey for the most part but will have a bronze/copper metallic looking shine to it when its angled and the light hits it right.

Kinda look like Gamesworkshop's Boltgun Metal paint.

Is it so hard to for people to just be fans of videogames?

Yeah it looks a lot like a Titanium actually - with a bronze metallic or clear coat added to it or something.

They should have just strait up went with a Titanium or a Black metallic but I still think it looks great. Its a lot better than the default Red and Blue XL colors they gave us here in NA. I'll take anything I can get to cover up those colors. I don't understand why Nintendo didn't give us a Black 3DS XL when they've stated they know the Black consoles sell better in NA.

Glad to help!

Hopefully they'll post some better photos for us with better lighting at some point. If not, I'll try to report in once mine arrives in the mail to clarify the details on the color of it. I'm guessing they won't ship them out until March though.
