Nintendo will launch a Flame Red version of its Nintendo 3DS next month. The new color will become available starting September 9, alongside the release of Star Fox 64 3D, joining the system’s current Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue color schemes.
“Nintendo 3DS is poised to be on fire for the holidays, with its new suggested retail price, great games and our new Flame Red color,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “With major upcoming releases in the Star Fox, Pokémon and Mario series, in addition to downloadable offerings from Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Video and Netflix, the system offers new and fun experiences to owners on a daily basis.”
A price drop, which will reduce the system’s cost from $249 to $169, is set to go into effect on August 12.
