If those of you with a Barney fetish (and you know who you are) felt slighted by Nintendo’s color choices for its 3DS line, todays announcement should brighten your day: Nintendo has officially announced that the Royal Purple 3DS system is the real deal and will arrive May 20th. I have to admit that the new color looks pretty cool; and in a mobile market where customization and personalization have become almost as important as the gadgets themselves, it’s great to see Nintendo offering its fans more choices. The new Royal Purple 3DS will retail for $169.99.
Viva la difference!!
