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.



  1. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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!


  6. 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.


  7. 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!
