Earlier this week it surfaced that Nintendo is planning to announce a Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS to coincide with the launch of Mario Tennis Open next month. Joystiq has now received word that US retailer Sam’s Club now has a pre-order listing for the Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS which is set to retail for $168.58. The Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS is thought to go on sale May 20th.
Beautiful… I still love my aqua blue c:
Yea, I know how you feel, I got an Aqua Blue on release day :P The Purple is cool looking, but it’s not a limited edition, so I suggest waiting and then buying it when it’s really cheap! :D
I plan on trading my aqua blue 3ds for the midnight purple. I just hope the gamestop employees will let me do a system transfer
pretty damn cool, but i’m happy with my red one.
So many colors…
maybe a rainbow 3DS would be released xD
That might actually be cool…if the did it right
Just in time for pride?
I’ll take eight!
That would make the 3DS about 20% cooler!
Do you even know what I’m referencing?
that would totally make the 3ds 20% cooler in 10 seconds flat
YES! Finally another brony on a game news page.
Brohoof to you both! (\
YOU BETTER NOT
who cares if you’re first
Really, and still no Luigi Green?
More likely to be called Jade Green or Emerald Green.
You know what I mean though right, no green 3DS, they better be saving that for Luigi’s Mansion 2.
they may do release a special bundle package for that when it comes out, but like I said it’ll probably be called Jade Green or Emerald Green.
I’m positive he understood you the first time, and he wasn’t even speaking litteralto begin with :P
It’s a really nice color, but I’m happy with my Cosmos Black 3DS, but if this is one of those things that’s on limited stock then I might.
Just wondering, does that circle pad look different to the one on anyone elses 3DS?
The circle pad is colored purple.
i meant the shape, looks bigger than the standard circle pad… may just be the angle??
it looks the same size as every other 3DS circle pad.
maybe im just going crazy … :S
Actually it does look different, but that’s just because what they showed at E3 2010 was not the final product. They said a while ago that they changed it. The colour and shape/size of this one is different, because this picture is from E3.
yeah all the others are grey :\
mine is white
its because the picture was (most likely) taken at e3 where they had a bunch of different colors, it wasnt the final model
It’s because the image is of the 3DS shown at E3. Not the final design, they showed off a variety of colours there including orangey/gold etc. The final one will likely look like this but with a grey circle pad.
When they announce a green one then I will trade up.
My little sister will be mad that they’re releasing this now. She got a 3DS a few months ago and this is her favorite color.
Oh that sucks, she will be disappointed :(
It’s tempting to get one of each color, but money doesn’t grow on trees… but paper money does come from trees, so maybe money does grow on trees. Maybe I will get one anyway.
looks gay… for gay fags! I like it.. therefore i am gay so I will get it for my boyfriend!
I love it! If this had been out before the Legend of Zelda limited edition, I probably would have picked it up. That being said, the Legend of Zelda paint job is part of what sold mine to me.
the 3ds looks gay, the white ds lite is still the sexiest ds ever made!!
Keeping my fingers crossed that this actually gets released. And having already paid 250 for my first one, I can easily justify spending 160 for a fuckin’ fine ass purple one, as well.
This is wonderful, I LOVE purple! Only problem ppl is that U HAVE to HAVE a SamsClub membership in order to shop there! THIS SUCKS, I am NOT about to pay for a membership JUST to buy a 3DS, I will just have to get the black!
go with someone who has a membership. derp.
I want it!!!!!!!! It is sexy AND my favorite color…my red one is about to get replaced LOL
I wish the cobalt blue one came.. and the white one in NA for that matter. Im very happy with my Zelda 3DS though :D
Please release the Cobalt Blue 3DS in Uh’merica! I’d buy it in a heart beat, the darker blue fits me better than my Zelda edition.
I might buy it just because it comes out on my birthday.
I like it, but I’ll stick with my Zelda 25th Anniversary 3DS thank you :)
I might actually get this whenever I finally buy the 3DS…
METROID ORANGE FTW!!!
Is there actually a colour like this available? If so,then i’ll purchase it with the 3ds i bought at launch.
Im happy with my black vita.
I bought a Cosmo black 3DS so that all the color would be the same on the whole system. And 2, because it doesn’t get dirty as quickly. But my second choice would definitely be midnight purple!
when will they make a green one? i want a green 3DS….. silver then? gold?
ahahah ooo ah oo oo oo (yeah yeah now realease the orange one)
