The 3DS is less than a week away! Take a look past the break to see the artwork that will be adorning North American shelves this Sunday.

They do included the “eco-holes” though, so we do get to join in on the adorable Nintendogs packaging party.
UPDATE: The EU 3DS cases are indeed the same thickness as the current US/JP DS cases, rather than the new, even thinner boxes they get in those regions:
