Aqua Blue 3DS Getting the Ax

Aqua Blue 3DS Getting the Ax

If you’ve got one, hold onto it real tight. It’s about to become much more rare.

Effective immediately, Nintendo is discontinuing all production of the snazzy Aqua Blue 3Ds system. Well, technically Nintendo Japan states that the Aqua Blue 3DS is “Scheduled to end production shortly.” But that basically means it’s already happened. There’s no official word as to why the system is getting ax, but it could very well be to make room in the lineup for the sharper, sleeker looking Cobalt Blue 3DS.

Although 3DS sales haven’t been stellar by any sense of the word, collector’s of rare, out of print gaming items can take solace in knowing that this particular system color may be worth a few extra bucks 20 years from now. Don’t count on Nintendo clearancing these bad boys out, however, as the Big N tends to avoid such charity towards eager gamers.
