A wonderfully cheap alternative to a special edition DS


Envious of the special edition It's a Wonderful World DS Lite? We were too. But now everyone who buys it, we tell ourselves, is a sucker, because Hori is releasing a Wonderful World DS Lite accessory pack for only 1,449 yen ($11.89), which actually looks better than the real thing.

The accessory kit includes a clear Protect Case with Wonderful World art and what may be the English logo-- we can definitely make out "Wonderful World" in that scribble. It also includes a black extending stylus with a skull logo and "TIME LIMIT within 7 DAYS" printed in red on the body. While we quite like the appearance of the case, we have to wonder why both special-edition Wonderful World designs (this Protect Case and the special-edition DS Lite) are so monochrome, when the game is characterized by explosive, vivid color.

We have yet to find a retailer selling this package, but when we do, it'll be, you know ... oh, there's a word for something that is really great. We wonder what it is ... It's got a w in it somewhere. Oh, yeah-- awesome.

I keep messing up that word, probably could use My Word Coach, but it's not onomatopoeia. What's that word for using a bunch of the same sound?

Actually, I think part of this is available already in America...

I got the above case for my DS from Best Buy for $15 several months ago and never looked back. :) You can download software for it that allows you to create and print out your own skins for your DS, though I'm not sure if the IAWW one is physically printed onto the case or not.

As it is, I'm currently sporting Samurai Pizza Cats, with Speedy Cerviche about to go into Cats Eye Slash on the back. :)
