Nintendo Badge Arcade is a new app arriving Europe this Friday, and it basically allows the user to personalize their 3DS screen.

It works like one of those arcade machines you slap a quarter into and maneuver the mechanical arm around to grab a teddy bear or a Duke’s of Hazard watch. And it always drops the thing. I real life anyway.

With the 3DS version, the player gets five daily free tries on a practice machine and win a free play on a real machine earning badges.

If you are the impatient type, you can forgo the daily wait and play 90p for five more tries.

It also includes a rabbit which sells StreetPass extras.

The Badge Arcade app was released in Japan in December 2014 and over 3,000 badges are available in the region.

Also, as Nintendo Life notes, there looks to be two new white 3DS XL skus coming to Europe. One is the normal New 3DS and the other is a white New 3DS XL.
