Nintendo Online Store Selling Rare Cover Plates

Nintendo has secretly decided to start selling rare cover plates for their regular size *New* 3DS system through their online store. Starting yesterday, they were selling rare cover plates that were previously only available in another region. A few noticeable ones were the glow-in-the-dark Boo plates which seems to be one of the most rarest and expensive ones on a 3rd party market, the Kanji Ambassador cover plate which were only available in New 3DS bundles in Europe, and the Power Up cover plates which were only released in South Korea as a bundle. Nintendo’s online store first started to release cover plates during the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle release and this has been its first push to bring more cover plates to North America region. Hopefully we will see more cover plates soon.

EDIT: It looks like most the rare cover plates were sold out within a few hours but you can still check out and see what they have left.

EDIT2: During the Nintendo NY grand reopening, these rare cover plates were on sale so expect them to be back in stock soon.

You can head to Nintendo’s official online store to check out what they have.
