Nintendo has always made its consoles colorful to drive up sales, and the 3DS is no exception. Japan will be getting
the Cobalt Blue 3DS
on March 22nd, and I'd imagine a worldwide release won't be far behind. This new color joins several new 3DS bundles that Japan will be getting as well. I was never wild about the light blue 3DS model so I'm glad a darker, sleeker option is coming.
It's interesting to note that Nintendo uses new color changes to drive up sales of a portable riiiight before announcing a newer, better model of said portable....hmmmmm.......
