The slim 3DS XL CitySlicker is probably the best-looking case available for your new new 3DS XL. Made of sturdy ballistic nylon and premium leather, it's custom-fitted for your device and provides pockets for your favorite games you may want to take along. The cushy interior hugs the new 3DS XL so it doesn't jostle around. The exterior sports a double-layer leather flap that enriches its look. The back of the case has a stretchable, self-locking zippered pocket to hold more games and ear-buds. Now available for the new 3DS XL!

All our products are crafted locally in our workshop by the most skilled sewing team in San Francisco.

- Full-grain cowhide leather flap
- Ballistic nylon body
- Rear power mesh pocket
- Soft liner

Thank God, A 3DS XL Case For Adults

Kotaku - Jan. 28, 2013

The CitySlicker is the welcome high-end video game accessory that actually feels high-end. It'll protect your hardware and let you carry a ton of extra games, headphones, and even your AC adapter. It looks mighty nice, too. If you're planning to play as much Fire Emblem (or whatever else) on the go as I've been, it's just the thing.

Accessory Review: WaterField CitySlicker 3DS Case

Nintendojo - March 25, 2015

“When retailers, other companies, even independent businesses decide to rival WaterField on the level showcased here, the discussion can be had for what the best case is for the 3DS family. However, as it stands, WaterField has created what can only be summed up as the perfect case; quality-first, care-embedded, and all-around illustrious. What’s presented here is a display of artistry, and, personally, I’d have it no other way.”

Amazing case

I bought the cityslicker case for my 3ds XL in March 2015 because I am a grown man that was tired of carrying my handheld in childish or cheaply made cases. I can honestly say this is easily the best case I have ever owned for any device. It has held up amazingly and fits my NEW 3ds XL just as perfectly as the original, even with a clear HORI case over it (for both models). The materials have held up and show very little wear. The details are thoughtful, like the loop on the bottom to enable removal of the console without squeezing the case and the snaps need just a little firm pressure to open and close. The leather and ballistic material is also just the right thickness to provide protection without excessive bulk. Overall, this is the case I recommend to anyone that asks about any device

Thank you.

I'm enjoying this excellent product. Keep up the work!

Christmas Gift

My nephew asked for this for Christmas. I had never heard of the company before but was very impressed with the quality of the city slicker case. I also took the time to browser your other products and I will be returning to your site!
The gift got the biggest smile ever, even though he requested it, it was given after the holiday and he kinda forgot about it. To say the least, it was a great hit!


This case is amazing. The quality of the material and its construction blew me away. I cannot recommend it enough. 5 out of 5.

Nearly perfect!

This case is so close to perfection! I adore this case so much. Only one tiny nitpicky item, and one request. There is too much inner fabric lining, and it bunches up a bit. Not a lot mind you, just a wee bit extra which I find annoying. The request: more colours please.
Again fantastic case, it is fabulous!
