Nintendo Announces New 3DS Colours!

They’re named ‘Clear Black’ and ‘Pure White’ and are being released on October 10th in Japan.  Which coincidentally, is exactly the same day the redesigned Playstation Vita is released too!  Here are some pictures:

Personally?  I’m not sure about these design wise.  Pure White is already kind of a misnamer given the top screen’s inside colour, and both designs look fairly… simple to be honest.  Still, they might well be enough to kill whatever hope the Vita had left in the region and to illustrate that Sony’s days in the handheld games console race are numbered…

What do you think of these new designs?

Pink 3DS XL coming to the UK!

It doesn’t tie in with any upcoming game or have a fancy limited edition design, but it’s a new colour of 3DS XL regardless.  It’s also only been confirmed for release Europe rather than the US or Japan, so don’t expect to see it for sale in GameStop any time soon.  This new model of 3DS XL will be released on May 31st 2013, and here are some pictures of said system:

Either way, it’s a new 3DS XL design that’s currently exclusive to the UK and Europe, so it might be worth buying if pink’s your favourite colour or you just want a ‘different’ style of 3DS when buying one for the first time.

It was revealed at another Nintendo Direct today (Japan only of course, focusing on the game Tomodachi Collection), and it’s a light green mint like colour.  Here are some pictures of the new 3DS XL design:

As you can see, it looks pretty nice.  Will it ever be released outside of Japan?  Honestly I wouldn’t count on it, but it’s yet another interesting 3DS XL edition that collectors might want to try and get hold off at some point in the foreseeable future.

So what do you think about the new 3DS XL colour/design?  Is it good?  Do you want one and wish Nintendo would release it outside of Japan? Post your thoughts in the comments below!
