According to North American retailers such as Target and Best Buy, the accessory will arrive in that territory on 25th September where it goes for $19.99 (about £13).

The peripheral will require two double A batteries.

New Nintendo 3DS includes the NFC function, so this accessory is only for older models of Nintendo's handheld devices - i.e. 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS.
