You'll Be Tickled Pink with New 3DS Deal, Europe

Posted by James Newton

The colours keep flowing

Don't want a 3DS in Cosmos Black, Aqua Blue, Metallic Red or the newly-revealed Ice White colour? How about a Coral Pink console?

As if wanting to suck every available penny in Europe, the console launches on 18th November – the same day as the Ice White 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D Land and the newly reconfigured blue Wii. We hope you're feeling rich.

At first you'll only be able to grab the machine in a bundle with Nintendogs + Cats, but the new colour will also be available on its own later this year.

Nintendo offers European fans a Coral Pink Nintendo 3DS bundled with nintendogs + cats
25th October, 2011 – Now here’s a bundle which will tickle you pink. Nintendo is launching a new Coral Pink Nintendo 3DS™ which you can pick up in Europe from 18th November, bundled with a copy of nintendogs™ + cats, offering a purrrrfect gift for Christmas.
Nintendo 3DS, the latest handheld console from Nintendo, offers portable entertainment in 3D without the need for special glasses. With the ability to play Nintendo 3DS games in full 3D or a huge range of Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo DSi™ games in 2D*, Nintendo 3DS offers the best handheld gaming experience for everyone. Take 3D photographs and capture those special moments in 3D video** or access an array of online and downloadable content such as games, demos and movie trailers via the Nintendo eShop.  Content like cartoons, music videos and video clips will also download automatically to the console via the SpotPass™ service, and data can be shared wirelessly with other users via the StreetPass™ function.
Now for the first time, your portable pooch has a feline friend to play with and your puppy can take walks with you whilst you’re on the move! Dog and cat lovers alike will have the chance to carry around their adorable puppy or kitten in their pocket. nintendogs + cats offers lifelike 3D graphics and interactivity which creates a fully immersive experience. Your cute puppy will seemingly come alive as he recognises your face using the Nintendo 3DS inner camera, follows your head movements and appears to pop out of the screen to lick you. Once you have his attention, use the stylus and microphone to teach him a variety of tricks through voice commands such as “give paw” or “lie down”. 
With a mass of customisation options available; the ability to meet other owners and puppies, swap items and 3D photos via StreetPass; and AR Cards which make your puppy or kitten literally leap around on the table in front of you by using Augmented Reality - this truly has to be seen to be believed.
If you already own nintendogs + cats and like the sound of a Coral Pink Nintendo 3DS, then do not worry as you’ll be able to get your paws on your very own Coral Pink console later this year.
Don’t forget that you can also play the more than 1000 Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games* on your Nintendo 3DS, as it is compatible with all of these games. For more information on Nintendo 3DS, visit

Well, I for one am not pickled tink, seeing as I already have a 3DS and have some preorders to purchase.

There seems to be extra info included in the press release not posted here. I'm looking at you asterisk

yeah I'm not getting this because A: not a fan of pink, much prefer my teal 3DS, B: I live in NA, and C: I'm flat broke

Not sure about next year since my sister wanted one but without a bundle.



StarDust4Ever said:

Aww, yes! Real men game with pink DS'es: it's what separates the men from the boys!

Not that I'd really do it, but I'm really not sure if it's possible to transfer over all of my stuff, Photos, Miis, Streetpass, play records, pedometer data (steps), e3 videos, ambassador games, and game saves. I still have pink fur gamer skin puffy decals (not really furry; it's just printed) on my launch model gray DS phatty.

It's so pretty! D:

Grumbles, but hugs my old Aqua Blue Ambassador 3DS

I remember a friend of mine long time ago had a pink GBA.. wasn't that bad of a color too. I played Zelda Oracle of Seasons on it



Kimiko said:

We're finally getting to the nicer colors. Do that purple 3DS you showed at E3 2010 next please, Nintendo.



Chris720 said:

I'd really like to see gold for some reason... but there was a tanned orange colour at E3 last year that'd I'd like to see.

But my Aqua Blue 3DS which I got for free, THANK YOU NL is just fine.

Mario 3D Land and Skyward Sword release on the same day in Europe? Wow that was a brilliant move. One game might cannibalize sales of the other.

Y U NO SAY U.S. RELEASE DATE, NINTY?! Pleeeeeaaase come before Christmas. I really want my sister to get one. D:



JayceJa said:


oh well, at least both of these are a step up from the red black and blue

If they are going for a pink 3DS, why not cash in and donate some of the money from each pink console to breast cancer. Might move an extra unit or two and make nintendo look nice.
