Nintendo Japan Discontinues Aqua Blue 3DS

Cobalt from the blue
Nintendo of Japan will soon end production of the Aqua Blue 3DS console.
The company's 3DS page lists the currently available colours, with Aqua Blue bearing the note "scheduled to end production shortly" (近日生産終了予定).
In March, Nintendo released the Cobalt Blue 3DS for Japan, so it makes sense to stick with one shade of blue for the territory.
Whether this means Nintendo will stop producing the Aqua Blue console altogether or simply stop distributing it in Japan is something we're investigating now.
