According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata not enough female gamers own Nintendo 3DS consoles so Nintendo has seen fit to announce a Misty Pink Nintendo 3DS. The Misty Pink Nintendo 3DS will go on sale October 20th in Japan. No word as of yet regarding a Western release but expect to hear something soon.
damn thats horrible, i suppose its nintendo’s rather half hearted attempts at getting females attracted to gaming
yesterda in the conference, they had a graph were the Wii and the DS were aprox 45% women 55% male users. While the 3DS was around 60% male and 40% users. So I think it’s a great move to even those numbers. What do you think?
It looks to bright pink for the 3DS, but i already have one. Where did you find those figures?
I prefer it over the aqua blue colour to be honest…
i have that one and to be honest i really like it better then the pink one in the picture its too girly
Half-hearted? The DS was really popular with girls as well as boys, and the fact there was a pink DS probably had something to do with it. The top screen of a 3DS has to be black on the inside, so it wasn’t exactly gonna look any different from this was it? What do you expect them to do? :/
Well, I’m a girl, and I like it! :) I hope they sell it here too.
No worries. They most likely will sell it there.
(Nintendo will always do product testing first in Japan)
I know! It’s so pretty! I want a purple one though!
WHY AREN’T THEY ANNOUNCING A PURPLE ONE?!
Everywhere i have looked, EVERYONE wants that colour.
How to get women to buy technology trick #3
Make a pink version
Lol for this, But i don’t like it even though I’m a girl, I already own a 3DS anyway and Aqua blue.
same here lool small world hey?
I’m female and all I can say is: yuk
I agree with you too.
make it chocolate ;)
Lol I’ll keep my blue one…
all my friends have the aqua blu 3ds and i am in grade 8 loool btw i agree wit you ill stick wit my aqua blue its the best color there and its better than having nothing right leave a comment if you agree wit me
The old pink DS colour was nicer in my opinion
who gives a damn?! i’m just happy red is out!
I like purple one. :3
If only they had released a full range of different colours at an early date of the original release date… really wanted the RED one….
Well, it’s okay I guess. I like it better than the Cosmos Black one, but Aqua Blue is still the best, IMO.
I have a pink DS and did not like the original launch colors of the 3DS then include the price and lack of games all contributed to me not getting one then. I would LOVE if they had purple come on Nintendo pander more to us girly girls who want to have cute 3DS’s we play games too and you have the best ones for us!
Now, if that had been availble instead of blue at launch, I may have been tempted…
However, I have the blue one so it’s not really a good idea to buy another one… However my brother may be interested XD He wanted the pink DSiXL when it was announced
Finally!!!! A new color!!! Gonna buy pink 3DS <3 <3 It looks good ^_^ (I'm a girl)
Is there a release date for the Flare Red 3Ds in europe? When I ask it a my local store the say they don’t know
I got the blue, my boyfriend got the black. We got them before the price drop was announced, and before these colors were announced. He wanted the red one, and now I want this pink one! I doubt it’s worth trading them in for though, but I’d LOVE to have the pink! Ah well, mine has a Zelda cover over it anyways.
Do green 3DS Nintendo! :(
Same color as a glossy pink lipstick. Sexy! :)
Imagine a chick with this in her hands… And I’m totally hers, lol!
I will not lie, it is a very mesmerizing color.
It looks very cool to me, and I’m a man. I like the colour a lot.
:O wow I want it, it looks cool and unusual, and I’m not a girl
I think this will be great! I remember with the DS lite, we would always have our pink DSs at the sleepovers and messing around in picto chat :)
Black is still my favorite.
