Designed to appeal to the fairer sex — it's pink, you see — Nintendo will release the "Misty Pink" version of the Nintendo 3DS on October 20 in Japan, said president Satoru Iwata.
Iwata commented that 3DS ownership is skewing more toward male consumers, which a pink 3DS may help to address. No word yet on a North American release, but since we're getting "Metallic Rose" Nintendo DSi XL soon, a "Misty Pink" future is probably likely.
[Kotaku AU Editor: Of course, this is the perfect solution! Everyone knows that girls will buy anything as long as it's pink. In related news, Tampax is expected to announce gunmetal grey tampons for men tomorrow.]
