New midnight purple 3DS coming in May

A new midnight purple-colored 3DS is scheduled to release May 20 for a suggested retail price of $169.99, Nintendo announced today.

Rumors of the new color first reared their head on GameFaqs earlier in the month when a reader spotted a listing for the product at EB Games. These were further cemented over the weekend when another listing on website Sam's Club appeared for a "3DS Midnight Purple 3DS Handheld" priced at $168.58.

This is the fifth color available for the system, joining Nintendo's previously released Cosmo Black, Aqua Blue, Flame Red and Pearl Pink 3DS'.

The release of the midnight purple 3DS is timed with May 20 launch of Mario Tennis Open.
