It seems the 3DS console's range of colours is growing out of control: no sooner has Nintendo announced the Misty Pink 3DS for Japan, it's come out and announced another new colour — Ice White.
The colour harks back to the Game Boy Advance's classic Arctic White scheme, of course, but boasts the familiar black surround for the 3DS top screen. It'll see release in Japan on 3rd November, just after the Misty Pink's 20th October release, and will cost ¥15,000.
Spin the 3DS colour wheel and let us know what you think will be the next variation of the console.
Ice too see you! Love it!
contrasts way too much from top too bottom, I'll stick with my original blue-ish green teal colour, whatever they call it
That looks sexy.
I wish Nintendo had these color 3DSies out at lunch
I'll probably get this one if they announce it for Europe. Unless they've announced a 3DS Lite by then.
Looks cool but I'm still happy with my Aqua Blue 3DS.
Wow! That looks stunning to say the least. Of course, if the top weren't black but white, it would be a lot better.
I was originally intending to pick up the Flame-Red 3DS whenever I accumulated enough money, but now I think I'll go with Ice White (glad they didn't call it Snow White ) instead.
Of course, that's assuming I buy the first form of 3DS. Most likely I'll wait for the 3DS Slim to come out.
I bought the black one because I couldn't have this. I'm happy, but this one looks so damn cool...
Now this is the only color so far that is about as cool looking as the cosmo black 3DS in my opinion.
OH YEAH! THATS WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT! AMAZING! I WANT IT!
Yeah, Nintendo tweeted it a few hours ago, warning Google translate is not good at translating currency. I didn't see white coming honestly.
I was wondering when White was coming out. I found it very odd that it wasn't a launch colour. It's my least favourite one though, after the Wii being white for years and me buying a White DSi it put me off white. I'd prefer black over white any day but given the choice of an actual colour I'd pick red. I wish red was a launch colour instead of black. I ended up picking blue as it's my second choice colour.
I'm not a fan of any of the white DS models, but this is freaking sexy. I love it. I still have my heart set on purple though.
I really hope that white version will be available in Europe too, along with "3DS System Transfer" tool. I would totally switch my blue system for this baby any day!
Damn, this one looks nice; if they release the redesign in white on US shores...I'm definitely picking it up.
I realize my comment may sound slightly illogical (and it is) but I already own a 3DS (although until I see the redesign I guess my comment is pointless )
This looks really nice, can I swap my Aqua Blue for this please?
Make a 3DS with either the NES or Famicom colour scheme like they did with the SP and I'm interested.
Wow, I really want to swap this out from my Black 3DS, this looks awesome
The Flame Red 3DS may not look like much in pictures, but in person it is a real head turner. By far, the best looking color of the 3 released in the US. It is probably one of the most gorgeous finishes on an electronic device that I have ever seen.
@Sir_Dragon: Me too
But there is one thing thhat doesn't make sence. Ice is transparent, not white.
Nintendo, why do you do this to us?
With all these colors, it makes me wonder if it would've been better to go the route of the Game Boy Micro: face plates. Maybe more like actual skins too.
As an early adopter these new colors are making me feel a little more and more screwed, but that's life. Don't get me wrong, I love my 3DS to death, but it really makes me wonder why colors are so limited upon launch, especially with all the flavors at E3.
Oh well, enough complaining, good on those who like white. Also, @Koops3, I lol'd.
Why is white such a great color? yeah, I know it's really not a color, but you know what I mean
If that color shows up in NA, I'm on it, day one!
Still prefer my black one, but now I'm thinking ...
They should call it '3DS Oreo'...well, I'll call it that...
That white looks so cool...
If I didn't already have Flame Red and commit myself to getting Aqua Blue, I'd snap up this in a (cold)snap. And...would you look at that? It's released in Japan ON MY BIRTHDAY! Oh, what sheer (cold) coincidence!
/me is all punned-out...for now...
I have a plain black one... I would've preferred this over any of the other colors they have out/are going to release.
I'm happy with my blue 3DS... but I want this one inside of me.
This white system looks, ehh, odd. Between the white, the black bezzle, and the grey circle pad, it just looks off balance and even a bit ugly, in my opinion. Give me the orange one from E3 2010. Please, Nintendo, ORANGE!!!
id trade my aqua for that anyday:o
First colour I've liked since the blue one for the 3ds, it looks like we have gotten the gameboy colour sequel where you buy your colour of choice and everyone else could have a different colour
metallic sunset orange would be cool
Dang That really is a nice color scheme. I think I like it better than my Cosmo Black one
NO! That is the one I would've bought from the start if it was there... Damn.
nICE, to see a COOL color like this. I just hope it gets released in America. I've been thinking of getting a 3DS but I like this color best.
I love it. If they make a 3DS Lite, Ice White or Flame Red is the colors I'll be waiting on!
i like the ice white colour on this 3DS. only gripe i'd have is it could leave fingerprints, marks on it. but other than that, it's very nice.
they have released a black, red and now nice white. i wouldn't mind it in orange, yellow, purple. green, sky blue colours either!
This looks... awesome.
Too bad I already bought my 3DS...
Awesome! Glad they made this color...but now I can't decide between a Red 3DS or White 3DS XD
Guess I'll go with red since it'll take a long while before the white one gets here.
@Teh_Ray the skins idea is excellent and much more affordable.
nintendo should release 3DS skins. each one has mario, link, samus, kirby, donkey kong on them!
Wow that is a nice one. I am still happy with the Flare red one but this would easily be my second choice. I wonder if they will be bringing this one out for NA for the holiday season. Kinda like some sort of holiday bundle maybe?
IMO The white one, the black one and the red one should have been launch colors. The blue one is nice but it seemed sort of an odd choice for a launch color.
Keep pumping these out
More variety, the better.
Orange, purple, yellow and green should be next
Not silver (the better choice).. but close enough. This needs to release here by Christmas, cause i may be forced to wait for the 3DS lite after then.
@YashaStepanovic The contrast is direct, therefore perfect. Best looking 3DS so far (blue/teal is the worst).
For some reason I now have Vaniila Ice's song Ice Ice Baby in my head.
The Legend of Zelda: Forest Green 25 Anneversary Special!
there could be a leaf green 3DS released with luigi's mansion 2- if this scan is any indication that this could all turn out to be true:
Love it! The color's cool (That wasn't intended to be a pun)! I'm keeping my Cosmo Black though, because I still like the color, and the fact that it's got the Ambassador games on it.
with nintendo bringing out new colours at a steady rate, The sunshine yellow (my name for it) 3DS should be out soon
That is so cool! Oh man I want it now!
@misswliu81 Ah, i thought LM2 would get add-on support. Glad Ninty weren't stupid enough to ignore it.
That doesn't seem green btw.. looks like their printer ran out of ink or something.
@Doma well it looks dark green. that pic must've been photoshopped. the person must've put a green tint over the 3ds.
either way, it would be brill if nintendo released LM2 with a green 3DS.
So we herd u liek colors...
...And boi, do we have colors u liek.
Seriously, though. Anyone know when all these colors will hit US stores? I REALLY want my sister to have a 3DS, and the only way she could get one is Christmas. But being stubborn, she wants that new pink one. Any news/rumors?
Yellow would be definitely cool.
On the one hand, skins like #24 Teh-Ray mentioned would be awesome, & make me a much quicker 3DS adapter.
On the other-hand, maybe Nintendo wants color ownership variety to be more concrete, so there would be less same-color, more eye-grabbing variety?
I think this looks pretty cool but I'm not getting it. I already have the blue one. Anyways, I prefer the red one. I really wish that was out at launch. It was one of the colors announced at E3 so why not? :/
I WANT BAD! BRING THIS PUPPY TO THE STATES. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL EBAY MY RED ONE IN A NEW YORK MINUTE.
Oh man, oh man. OH MAN.
For the first time ever I regret buying my 3DS. Okay, I don't, but I seriously want this. I'll probably buy one if I can transfer my eShop purchases by then...
WOW! this is EPIC! Why don't nintendo say what colours(colors) they want to sell before they sell their first 3DS? Well, people say white stuff gets dirty, but I doubt that this would get dirty. My polar white ds lite only has some dust stuck under its own outer case.
Again, cure me and my need to buy products at launch
OOOO I love that contrast! Too bad this version wasn't able at launch :<
Maybe I should have waited...
It looks... GORGEOUS
Now watch Nintendo not release it in America.
Nice color! But I still think I'll go for the blue one!
The white actually looks pretty cool. I hate being a early buyer sometimes.
awesome Better than my black one
