This is just what Dr. Mario ordered. More Hot Rod colors for the Nintendo 3DS. Okay, just one new color, but it’s a nice one: Flame Red. This new version of Nintendo’s latest hand held will arrive on September 9th, 2011.
It launches alongside the new Star Fox 64 3D game and will be available for the new $169.99 (USD) price point, which has already gone into effect. This way you have a cool new game to buy with that flaming red portable.
The big N hopes that the new price and this color offering will increase sales beyond the 830,000 3DS units already sold in the U.S. since its launch. Mario fans certainly have a reason to lay down the cash since Super Mario Land 3D will be arriving in November and Mario Kart 7 is coming in December. It’s a good time to be a Nintendo fanboy/girl. By the way, can you believe that we are on Mario Kart 7?
