When the Nintendo 3DS first launched across the world, the console was only available in two colours – Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black. Since then, the catalogue of available colours has increased to include Flare Red, Icy White, Coral Pink, Cobalt Blue and the recently announced Midnight Purple. Rather than increasing this list of colours though, it is decreasing.
On Nintendo’s official website, there is a list of all of the available colours (Excluding limited edition models). Under the Aqua Blue model there is a note saying “scheduled to end production shortly”. No reason has been given for the discontinuation of the Aqua Blue 3DS. It is currently unknown how/if this will affect the colour internationally.
So, I guess that makes my model a rarity then?
