Nintendo to Offer New 3DS Color, Flame Red

Today, Nintendo announced a new color joining the ranks of Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue for its 3DS handheld system.  Starting September 9th, you will have the oppurtunity to purchase a Flame Red 3DS, which just so happens to launch the same day Star Fox 64 3D hits store shelves.

“Nintendo 3DS is poised to be on fire for the holidays, with its new suggested retail price, great games and our new Flame Red color,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime.

How’s the new color look to you?  If black and blue weren’t your thing, is the announcement of red joining the lineup making you a little hotter for the 3DS?  Let us know in the comments!

    Haha, I thought the blue was a little too light for me. I liked the black one, but the red one is pretty hot looking..
