Nintendo 3DS Future Color Options
So are you looking to buy a Nintendo 3DS? It’s an incredibly exciting little handheld. But as of this writing there are only two color choices available. I already wrote a little bit about the color selection currently available and made a poll asking what colors people were looking forward to. It seems the launch colors are not so popular.
So this begs several questions:
- Will people base their purchase of a 3DS solely on color?
- And if so, what are the future color options for the 3DS?
- Will we see some interesting colors such as gold, or silver, or even some patterns or themed 3DS’s released sometime in the near future?
I personally find the aqua blue quite nice. But I’m sure a lot of people out there are looking for a 3DS color that suits them. Hopefully Nintendo will release lots more colors in the near future to help entice holdouts to buy the 3DS. I think Nintendo does get how important this is to people.
The DS lite after all ended up being produced in a whole rainbow of beautiful colors which combined with it’s sleek design helped make it much more appealing to the masses and was a large component of it’s prolonged success.
So let’s check out some of the colors that Nintendo has hinted might be released.
First we have gold. No, it’s not a gold plated, blinged out 3DS, although that would be awesome (look for some crazy fan boy to actually do this with real gold). Instead it’s got a gold paint job. This is just a concept color and not for sure.
Next, Purple. Initially I scoffed at the purple 3DS, but apparently I was in the minority. According to my unscientific poll found here. Most people want a purple 3DS. Listen up Nintendo! The people have spoken! I think we might see this color sometime in the lifespan of the 3DS, but Nintendo has seemed to shy away from purple ever since the Gamecube became known as “The Purple Lunch-Box,” perhaps even hurting it’s overall sales. Let's hope they take a second look at it!
Lime Green 3DS
Another color Nintendo may release in the future is orange. I cant see this one being incredibly popular. However this picture of an Orange 3DS does look pretty nice.
