Nintendo launching 3DS in Light Blue and Gloss Pink on March 20 in Japan

The Nintendo 3DS will be available in Japan in two new colors, Light Blue and Gloss Pink, as of March 20, Nintendo announced today.

Each model will sell for 15,000 yen (approximately $163), and will come with a 4 GB SD card; 3DS units typically come with 2 GB SD cards. The new colors take the place of the Flame Red and Aqua Blue models, both of which Nintendo discontinued in Japan last year.

We've reached out to Nintendo to ask if these colors will be made available stateside.
