Midnight Purple 3DS Confirmed By Nintendo

Posted on April 30, 2012 AT 07:26am

THE BUZZ: Nintendo has confirmed that the next 3DS color will be Midnight Purple.

The handheld will be available from May 20, priced at $169.99.

EGM’s TAKE: Once again a new version of the 3DS that offers nothing more than a palette swap. If you already have one you won’t be rushing out to pick up a second regardless of its color. This only really appeals to those who haven’t yet picked one up but actually want one. We’re unsure if purple is enough to convince them to take the plunge.

What other colors would you like to see? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
