    I guess they figure that more people are going after the other blue or other colors more.

    Personally if I was going to get blue and it was here, I'll get the dark blue.

    This might be bad for me. I love my Aqua Blue, but I need to send it in for repairs (meant to send it in earlier to fix outer cameras). If I don't act quick, and they replace it, I'll have to deal with a different color..... :(

    If I'm not mistaken, this discontinuation has not been announced for Europe or N America.

    I hope you are right, I love Aqua Blue and I hope it doesn't get discontinued in Europe or North America. So I'm going to edit my post to reflect this, thank you.

    Your welcome. However, I wouldn't be surprised if NOA follows suit soon because having 5 colors including the impending Purple version would be really stuffing the shelves of retailers. One's got to go (probably).

    This news is JP only. They had more colors than other regions so this isn't that surprising. Maybe AB wasn't selling so well.

    My Aqua Blue 3DS is now shouting for a replacement 3DS. Maybe its time to get another Aqua Blue 3DS. I love this color.

    Wear and tear signs are now visible @_@

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I wont buy it until 3DS lite is out since I dont have 3DS because many games are not good enough for me, thought. I wait for 3DS lite and enough good games for me to buy it then. :)

    ERROR!
    I don't see why they would do this, the color has frequently been used in 3DS presentations and ads as part of their blue/red/black on a white background theme.


    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Can't tempt me with your fancy colours Nintendo. Black will always be my choice of colour for a portable console.
