Aqua Blue 3DS being discontinued?
Seems like this is so, at least in Japan. Yes, Nintendo have confirmed that they’re not making any more of this 3DS colour for the Japanese market (presumably because they want to replace the old style with the new models that have been steadily released since).
Scheduled to end production shortly
Thankfully this shouldn’t affect anyone in the US or Europe where this colour of 3DS console is still being made (and where Nintendo have no plans to cease production of it), but it’s interesting to note that they’re shutting down production of a certain hardware design regardless.
So yes, if you want an Aqua Blue 3DS and you live in Japan, you’d better buy one quick.
