Nintendo is offering a new Flame Red version of its portable Nintendo 3DS system. The new color launches Sept. 9 alongside the new Star Fox 64 3D game, and comes on the heels of a new $169.99 suggested retail price, which goes into effect Aug. 12 in the United States.
Flame Red joins Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue, so now shoppers have three distinct and fashionable colors to choose from, says the company.
“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.
“With major upcoming releases in the Star Fox, Pokémon and Mario series, in addition to downloadable offerings from Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Video and Netflix, the system offers new and fun experiences to owners on a daily basis.”
On the software side, the company says, third-party developers have lined up to deliver great new experiences that make use of the unique features of Nintendo 3DS.
Since Nintendo 3DS launched in the United States on March 27, more than 830,000 units have been sold in the U.S. alone, according to the company.
