Nintendo have today announced the release of a new colour for the 3DS console – Misty Pink! (or shocking pink as some might call it).

No prizes for guessing what demographic the pink 3DS is going after, and after the success of the many different colours of the original DS console nobody can be overly surprised at this news, but the timing is perhaps earlier than expected, and is perhaps slightly less ‘newsworthy’ seeing that they announced a similarly coloured DSi XL last week.

Anyway, if a 3DS in pink is what you have been holding out for then be sure to check out the latest 3DS pink prices which will appear as soon as its available in the UK (October 20th is the best guess at the moment).
