Those picking up a "Flare Red" 3DS might want to act soon. Nintendo recently revealed that the colour will soon be going out of production.
The colour was launched back in July 2011 in Japan. It was the third colour launched there, after Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue.
With the 3DS XL out (and new Red X Black XL), perhaps Nintendo wanted to scale back its 3DS colour line-up. Earlier this year, Nintendo ceased production on the Aqua Blue model.
Thanks Flare Red for all your redness!
