DSi XL To Get New Metallic Rose Colour Next Week


The 3DS isn’t the only system getting a new colour this month; the DSi XL is, too. Nintendo will release a Metallic Rose DSi XL model next week. It’ll come pre-loaded with Flipnote Studio, Brain Age Express: Math, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters and Photo Clock.


Why a pink colour? Nintendo are targeting kids returning to school — girls specifically — with the rose DSi XL and the release of Kirby: Mass Attack, which releases a day later.


The Metallic Rose DSi XL will release on September 18th at $170.
