3ds XL Available colors

Postby MermaidKelly » 03 Nov 2012 22:44

My question is pertaining to US, but this topic can be continued for all regions if desired.

My friend bought a 3ds XL today, and he said he saw a Red, Blue, and Teal. Now, I didn't think a teal was even released! :shock: Is it a special I didn't know about? Or is my friend just 'thinking' he saw a Teal XL?

Nintendo has only officially released Red and Blue 3DS XL models in the US, plus the Pink one that's exclusive to an online store for a limited time.

If I could guess, he probably mistook the Aqua Blue 3DS model for an XL. That color is pretty close to Teal.

Does anyone know if there's been any announcement about new 3DS colors for the US anytime soon?

I'm set on getting a 3DS XL, but not really interested in the red and blue models. How far after the release does Nintendo usually put new colors out?

Besides the Pink/White 3DS XL available through HSN there hasn't been any others announced for the US, while the UK on the other hand is getting a White 3DS XL and a limited edition Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL.

I too would like to know. This is literally the only thing keeping me back from buying an XL. I wouldn't mind White though. hopefully we get all the UK colors as well as the pink for my wife. She needs Animal Crossing!

I guess no new colors for the holidays means we're stuck with Red & Blue until March/April, right? :|

I honestly don't get why everyone is upset over no white color in NA... The DSL's white didn't sell hardly at all, and everytime I was in a store and saw someone buy the DSL, it was always the black one. I think reggie is doing a good move by holding it back, as long as we get limited edition 3DS XLs

Sooooo... we still have no new colors. Nothing was even announced on E3.

I've lost all hope, I'm thinking I'll have to settle for a Red one, or I'll never play AC:NL. :cry:

I'm personally still waiting for a black 3DS XL. I won't buy one until then... My brother is waiting for a white version. No, I don't like those red/black or blue/black models. I'm in no hurry though.

They are to some of us. Let's not act like having more color choices is a bad thing.

Still waiting on a XL that really speaks to me. Whatever happened to Nintendo when the frosted/clear colors were all the rage? I would totally pony up the dough for a frost blue or black one, quicker so for a neon Jungle Green comparison to the old N64 color!

Nintendo explained why they're not doing additional colors. These colors take up space, and retailers want to get the highest selling version out there. They can't dedicate 10 shelf spaces for 10 different colors. This is why they're focusing on releasing limited edition XLs that are high in demand.

In US market it is, considering how they take too much of the shelves. Heck the GBA section in my gamestop for a long time was filled with more systems than games taking space on the shelf because there were too many colors.

There are plenty of armors and skins out there that can make your 3DS change color. The mega man case will change it to grey and blue.

You guys act like more colors "taking space" is our problem, and not Nintendo's or the retailer's.

The bottom line is, I'd love to buy a 3DS XL, but I don't want to get it in bright red or blue because I'm an adult, and Nintendo has given me no options. I hope they do later on, special edition or not.

Eh, I don't think so. It seems permanent. The limited release colors are the special editions (Pikachu, Fire Emblem, Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing, etc).
