Update: Midnight Purple 3DS hits North America on 20th May.
Retailer Sam's Club has listed a Midnight Purple 3DS — a colour Nintendo hasn't announced. Joystiq spotted the listing this past weekend.
Purple was among the colours first shown off when 3DS was unveiled at E3 2010, but hasn't found its way into the handheld rainbow yet.
It wouldn't be the first purple console of course — Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, GameCube and Nintendo 64 have all been released in the hue — so there's certainly precedent. Still just a rumour, though.
Some Gamestops also have it listed as well.
I knew this a week ago lol If it's true I'm so getting it
Little late on this story there Nintendolife. Not getting it.
Purple consoles are the best. But I already have the Zelda and Toad 3DS consoles...
@Some_Chords I have other things to do with my weekends!
Call me when that sweet (rumored) Luigi's Mansion Emerald Green 3DS shows up...
Confirmed! Out on May 20. Lovely.
Technically, the GameCube and GBA were indigo, not a sweet deep purple like this.

@James Oh, sorry i forgot that other people actually have lives
@Some_Chords No harm done! I should be used to it by now Anyway, we were one of the first sites to get the confirmation up, so it all evens out
Wow...nice! I've got the cosmic black version but if I had the choice back then, I would have gotten the purple one.
My friend's still waiting for the white one, I dont blame him the white one looks awesome.
Why don't they have a big choice of colors for handheld consoles when they first come out because then people regret getting the color they got.
its not quite like the one in the picture ;/
