Loud. Gaudy. The box art for the Monster Hunter 3 (-tri) G 3DS Expansion Slide Pad bundle was madness. Nintendo's take on the 3DS Expansion Slide Pad's stand alone packaging is not.

It's restrained, standard—the simplicity you'd expect from Nintendo these days. The 3DS Expansion Slide Pad will be available separately on Dec. 10 for ¥1,500 ($20). It will come in this box.
