    The next 3DS color variation in North America could be “Midnight Purple”. An entry for the product has been found on the Sam’s Club website.

    Prior to this discovery, a member of the GameFAQs message boards claimed that his local EB Games listed the Midnight Purple 3DS for May 20.

    If Nintendo makes an official announcement about the new color, we’ll be sure to let you know.

    Thanks to Jake for the tip.

    And I was expecting the darker original DS color.

    God this is fucking ugly.

    The mockup doesn't do it justice, photos of the purple models shown at E3 are actually quite nice.

    The E3 displayed models are slightly different though, they didn't keep the matching colour slider-pads.


    And in the UK too.

    I don't see anything wrong with the colour, its not for me but its nothing repulsive to look at.

    Great, they pick a new color that red/green colorblind people such as myself can't even see. :rofl:
    (it looks like dark blue because I can't see the red component).

    Interesting fact: 5-8% of males are red/green colorblind. I wasn't lucky. :P

    It seems that that picture up top is a mock up, when you go to the original source. The actual "Midnight Purple" hasn't been shown.

    I'm one of the people who would fit in that group, it seems.
    Anyway, this doesn't look bad or anything, but I would've preferred something that looks more similar to the GC's purple.

    There were a few colors at E3, when the 3DS was shown:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Mind you, I'd prefer that purple one on top to any of the other availiable colors right now.

    I like the purple. But the real question that you're all forgetting is where is the see-thru purple 3DS?
