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.
