New 3DS XL - Red

It’s red now!

Announced on July 27th by Nintendo, the New 3DS is getting a new colour. As far as I can tell, the Metallic Red that Japan is getting on August 27th is the same colour as the New Red colour we already have in North America. Whether there’s any difference between the two colours remains to be seen. North America is still waiting for the Metallic Blue colour that Japan has, so that kind of balances it out.

New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS LL

The New 3DS and New 3DS XL were released in Japan on October 11 2014, and in North America (just the XL, though) on February 13th. It retails for $199.99 USD.
