It fits just fine, although getting the silicone in the joint on the 3DS can be problematic. My biggest problem with it is the ergonomics. The grip should extend all the way up the length of the device instead it takes a sharp dip an inch before the triggers leaving a large hole in the grip. This leaves my middle finger just hanging there with nothing to grip. I can move my hand lower, but then my index finger has to reach really high to get to the R/L buttons (much less the ZR/ZL buttons). I don't even know why the part right next to the bumpers protrudes like it does. The covers for the bumpers can slip off the bumpers themselves rather easily. There is no hole for games on the New 3DS XL version which was clearly an oversight. This was just short of what I wanted, but just missed on a lot of points.
