Flame Red 3DS hitting US next month

A brand new colour for the 3DS will hit US retailers on September 9th, the platform holder has announced.

It’s called the Flame Red edition, and it will be launched alongside the release of first party shooter Star Fox 64 3D.

To date only the Aqua Blue and Cosmos Black SKUs have been available in the region, much like in the UK.

There’s no word yet on a possible European release. Typically new colour launches can be quite territory specific, so don’t automatically assume there will be a UK release.

“Nintendo 3DS is poised to be on fire for the holidays, with its new suggested retail price, great games and our new Flame Red colour,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stated.

“With major upcoming releases in the Star Fox, Pokémon and Mario series, in addition to downloadable offerings from Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Video and Netflix, the system offers new and fun experiences to owners on a daily basis.”
