Nintendo Unveils Flame Red Nintendo 3DS; Red Hot

Nintendo Australia have unveiled the latest colour to join the 3DS Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue stable, the Flame Red 3DS. Some may remember this red hot beauty gracing gaming news when the Nintendo 3DS was first announced, and then quietly disappearing into obscurity only to be forgotten.

With the recent price reductions and lack of colour choices, it looks like Nintendo Australia are pulling out the stops. The Nintendo 3DS has some rather large DS shoes to fill and this could be just the beginning of bigger and better things to come.

Given all the colours and iterations the Nintendo DS came in during its life cycle (and still going strong), adding more colour variety could be just what the 3DS needs to get new consumers on board.

Priced at $249.95 RRP with a launch date set for the 22nd of September 2011, some Australian retailers are already taking pre-order from this fiesty red hot mama. Is it time to upgrade to a new colour scheme, or take a plunge into the 3D realm for the first time?
