Flame Red Nintendo 3DS release date confirmed for September 9th in the US

Nintendo has confirmed it is to launch the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS in the US with the brightly coloured console to land alongside the upcoming price drop.

Having showcased the Flame Red 3DS at the device’s unveiling at E3 last year, the tomato-toned console is already available in Japan with a September 9th US release date to see it touch down alongside the current Aqua Blue and Cosmos Black offerings.

"Nintendo 3DS is poised to be on fire for the holidays, with its new suggested retail price, great games and our new Flame Red colour," Nintendo’s US president Reggie Fils Aime said.
Whilst it has yet to be announced if the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS UK release date will coincide with the console’s UK price drop it was revealed yesterday that British 3DS users are now able to make use of 5,000 free Wi-Fi access points across the country.

Will a new Flame Red offering or the console’s new lower price tempt you into splashing out on the glasses-free 3D portable games console?
