                Nintendo 3DS Gets a Royal New Color on May 20: Midnight Purple

                Just as lilacs and hyacinth bloom throughout the spring, so too a new color is blooming for the Nintendo 3DS system. Midnight Purple gives the hand-held a royal new look. The new color will launch May 20, the same day Mario Tennis Open becomes available.



                The Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS, offered at a suggested retail price of $169.99 in the United States, becomes the fifth color in the always-stylish Nintendo 3DS color palette, joining Cosmo Black, Aqua Blue, Flame Red and Pearl Pink. Now fans have another option to customize the look of their systems to suit their individual styles and personalities.

                Nintendo 3DS lets users enjoy games and videos in 3D without the use of special glasses. Mario Tennis Open adds to the strong library of Nintendo 3DS games, which also includes Super Mario 3D Land, Kid Icarus: Uprising and Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir. Fans also can check out 3D videos on Nintendo Video and access new and classic downloadable games in the Nintendo eShop.

                Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

                  Sweet. That's the color I liked best when I was at E3 2010.

                  May have to give my black one to my oldest son and grab this one for me.

                  When I read the title and then your post I thought "Viper must be on crack...", then I clicked it and yeah, it looks surprisingly nice.

                  Seeing it in person really gives an even better impression. The metal flake (which all the 3DS colors have) on the purple really stood out which gave it an appropriate 3D look.

                  I dig the purple color also. Reminds me of the Gamecube.
