Pretty in Purple: Nintendo announces another 3DS colour option

If four colour choices weren’t enough for you, the Nintendo 3DS has another one coming. Purple.

Dubbed “Midnight Purple”, the new colour option will coincide with the upcoming “Mario Tennis Open” for the Nintendo 3DS when it releases on May 20th, joining the likes of Aqua Blue, Cosmo Black, Flame Red and Pearl Pink. It is expected to retail in North America for US$170

I, for one, love this new colour. It invokes a sense of love towards the Nintendo GameCube, limited-edition M&Ms and eggplants. Why can’t more consumer electronics be in purple?
