Nintendo has officially announced today that they will be releasing the Nintendo 3DS in a new color – Cobalt Blue on 22 Mar 2012. This is the sixth color that Nintendo has launched their Nintendo 3DS in Japan, along with Cosmo Black, Aqua Blue, Flair Red, Misty Pink and Ice White.
In addition, a limited edition Cobalt Blue Nintendo 3DS will be released bundled with upcoming Fire Emblem Awakening bundle that will be sold sold exclusively through Nintendo’s online store.
Of course, these sets are released for the Japanese market and there’s no news of whether the new colored console will be released for the international market as well. The Cobalt Blue does look really cool, so I’m quite disappointed that Nintendo made this announcement after I just gotten my Nintendo 3DS (Ice White) on Tuesday >_<”
