3DS XL is just eight days away — at the time of writing — in Europe, so it goes without saying that we can all look forward to plenty of accessories and extras flooding stores and online retailers. We've received an initial shot across our bows today from Snakebyte, a company that provides plenty of low cost cases, adapters and so on for various gadgets.

Details are in the press release below, and we imagine that a quick browse of any online retailer in the coming weeks will show a lot of different options to buy.

The Nintendo 3DS XL release is right around the corner and the accessory specialists at snakebyte [have] got the perfect accessories ready to go.

Especially the fact that the Nintendo 3DS XL handheld will be sold without a charger in Europe and Japan means that potential buyers are on their own when it comes to getting a charger. This is where snakebyte comes in with their universal:ac adapter, the perfect charging solution just in time for the release. The universal:ac not only supplies power to the 3DS XL, but is also able to charge 3DS, DSi XL, DSi, DS Lite, DS und GBA SP. The universal:ac will be available right in time for the release of the 3DS XL for SRP 7,99€.

In addition to the charger, snakebyte now also offers their popular travel:pack for the 3DS XL. The affordable kit consists of a USB charging cable that can charge up to 7 devices, a car charger, three game cases, two screen protectors as well as a sturdy carrying case and in-ear headphones. The travel:pack is also available just in time for the release of the 3DS XL for SRP 19,99€.

To round off a great offer, the screen:protect (SRP 4,99€) as well as the travel:bag (SRP 9,99€) may be purchased separately.“We are thrilled to be able to offer our high quality snakebyte accessories to gamers just in time for the release of the 3DS XL. The missing charger may be an unpleasant surprise for some customers, but that gives us the opportunity to offer our charger, especially to newbies”, Mike Steup, Managing Director of Sunflex Europe GmbH commented on the announcement.
