Underwhelmed by the shimmery Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black launch colors of the 3DS? Perhaps you were holding out for a handheld with a little more fire on the outside?

Nintendo is set to kill two of your birds with one color by making official the new 3DS colour dubbed Flare Red. The new colour will launch in Japan on 14th July alongside the ludicrously suffixed Star Fox 64 3D, handily addressing the 12th reason for why Japan has held out on buying a 3DS yet.

There are no announced plans to release it elsewhere yet, but we would be shocked and awed if it wasn't in your territory by the end of the year.
