Red 3DS: Find a Cheap Red 3DS Deal

Searching all around the Internet, we’ve found the best deals for anyone who would like a their 3DS in red.

Update: Who doesn’t have fond memories of the first time they heard Nintendo were releasing the 3DS in red? I don’t. But apparently at the time it was such a big deal that I made this page all about it. I’ll probably feel the same way in a few years when I look at stuff I wrote about the PS4 Pro on my new website. If you want a look at that site, you can see it here.

Compare Red Nintendo 3DS Prices

A recent 40% price cut and a simply stunning line-up of 3DS-exclusive games means there has never been a better time to buy the hottest portable games console on the market. Here’s our price comparison to help you find the best Metallic Red 3DS console offers:












Metallic Red 3DS Comes to Europe and North America

The Red 3DS has finally arrived. Nintendo released the new colour announcing it as ‘Metallic Red’ in Europe rather then “Flame Red” that the US received and “Flare Red” of Japan. Despite the name change, the colours are exactly the same.

The news comes as a celebration after Nintendo revealed that the 3DS has surpassed one million units sold in Europe.

The ‘Metallic Red’ 3DS model will will be priced at the same price as the older versions meaning you don’t pay any extra for being one of the first with the new look.

Red 3DS: What We Know

For some time now, we’ve known that a Red 3DS is being released. Since the Japanese got it theirs a few months ago, we’ve been waiting to get our paws on it in both the US and EU. So here is a small reminder of what we know so far.

In Japan it known as Flare Red, Flame Red in the US and Metallic Red in the EU. Whilst there are no software or design changes, Nintendo wanted to widen the variety of colours on offer to gamers. Some of their audience wanted a brighter, more punchier colour, and the Flare Red 3DS was born to bring a more vibrant gaming experience to 3DS.

The Flare Red 3DS hit shelves in the US for the new retail price of $169.99, and around £129.99 in the UK.

One day Adam had a vision, and that vision was in 3D. After a while his eyes started to hurt so he looked away from the vision and started making a website about the 3DS instead of playing it, and so 3DS Buzz was born.

  86. I really like your writing style, great info , thanks for posting : D.

  87. Some truly good posts on this site, thanks for contribution.

  88. You are my intake , I possess few web logs and rarely run out from to brand.

  89. wonderful issues altogether, you simply gained a new reader. What could you suggest about your submit that you just made a few days ago? Any sure?

  90. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.

  91. Thanks for helping out, great information.

  92. I have to show my appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of such a matter. Right after checking throughout the the net and meeting recommendations that were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was done. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you have solved through the write-up is a critical case, as well as those that could have negatively affected my career if I hadn’t encountered your web blog. Your actual knowledge and kindness in touching every aspect was tremendous. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come across such a step like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and effective help. I will not hesitate to suggest your web site to anyone who will need recommendations on this issue.
