Nintendo announces Metallic Rose DSi XL

Nintendo News DS

To a resounding response of what? Nintendo has announced a new color for their Nintendo DSi XL handheld. Never a company to let their handhelds die in piece (though they certainly seem fine letting the Wii die a depressingly slow death), this color will hit stores on September 18th. It will cost $169.99 which is the same price as the recently dropped 3DS price.

This is a bit strange simply because their 3DS sales in North America have rose by 260%, but with the DSi XL being the same price as the 3DS it is certainly strange that Nintendo continues to release colors for what can now be considered as old tech. Plus how many people who don’t already own a 3DS or DSi XL are going to run out and buy this pink one?

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
