The Nintendo 3DS Will Soon Come in 'Misty Pink' for the Ladies

Designed to appeal to the fairer sex—it's pink, you see—Nintendo will release the "Misty Pink" version of the Nintendo 3DS on October 20 in Japan, said president Satoru Iwata.


Iwata commented that 3DS ownership is skewing more toward male consumers, which a pink 3DS may help to address. No word yet on a North American release, but since we're getting "Metallic Rose" Nintendo DSi XL soon, a "Misty Pink" future is probably likely.

How old are we? I grew out of saying pink was for girls when I was 9 years old.

Pink is actually my favourite colour, I'm a 24 years old and living with my fianceé and last time I checked I didn't have a vagina.
