Wow, this thing is a looker. And honestly, I’ve been looking for an alternative. I’ve caught a lot of sh*t carrying around my Japanese launch-day Ice Blue DS Lite. I remember an old lady saying, “Honey, isn’t that a bit girly for a guy?”
Nintendo sends us news of a new, delicious looking, two-toned DS Lite, coming bundled with Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day for $149.99. It is scheduled to hit shelves on August 21st.
As far as the new DS goes, the top half is a glossy Crimson red, while the bottom half is matte black (Nintendo is calling it Onyx). Think back: there was another game system with a similar color scheme.
Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day is the sequel to the original, which moved 8.61 million copies worldwide. This sequel has been out in Japan for awhile, and it has already sold over 5 million units.
It’s probably safe to say that Nintendo will move a lot of these bundles this holiday.
