Red, turquoise, and green DSs, culinary tool coming to the continent in June.
The Nintendo DS Lite has been seen in a plethora of colours overseas, with variants including crystal white, ice blue, enamel navy, noble pink, jet black, metallic rose, gloss silver, and crimson/black in Japan. The US also boasts a decent range of colours including polar white, coral pink, onyx, crimson/black, cobalt/black, and limited-edition models such as gold, metallic rose, and the Legend of Zelda "Triforce DS."
Meanwhile, Europeans have merely had a few stock-standard shades to date, including crystal white, smart black, and platinum colours. Today, Nintendo Europe announced three new colours: red, turquoise, and green, in addition to a new game, Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What to Eat?
According to a statement from the Mario Factory, Cooking Guide "goes beyond the capabilities of printed cookbooks and literally talks budding chefs step-by-step through all the processes involved in cooking a tasty dish," and features close to 250 international dishes.
For owners who fear slopping Bolognese sauce on their DSs, Cooking Guide will respond to voice commands, and will repeat steps as many times as required for slower cooks. The game also includes a glossary with "in-depth illustrated details on everything from chopping techniques to explaining cooking terminology," as well as a shopping list and egg timer.
The new DS colours will be available for £99 ($194) on June 13, and Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What To Eat? will be heating up kitchens from June 20, priced at £30 ($59).
ok turqoise is nice but i would not own it because im a guy the green one is gastly and the red one is just too bright buy a white or black ds not these
What???? I bought a new White DS Lite yesterday after my old white DS Lite broke!!! I wish I could trade my White Lite in.... Grr...doom nintendo!!!
The blue one looks like my ice - blue launch DS, the yellow one looks like sick and the red is so bright it gives you a headache. Just another excuse to get people to waste money when they don't need to. Plus, pretty much everyone has DSs now so who wold by another because it is made out of different colours of plastic.
You can get the dark blue one, but it's Japan only. I picked one up while I was there last year. NecroCharm: There's no red DS Lite released anywhere so far, only the crimson/black one.
Lord Artix WE already HAVE red here. I know, I have seen them! They forgot cobalt blue! How cares anyway? It's just purdy colors, not like it adds anything to the game play.
Red would be nice here in the states, but I'm still waiting for an all-cobalt one instead of that stupid black and cobalt one.
Ouch, that red one gives me a headache. I'll stick with my black DS, thanks... and what's with that puke-green?
I'td take that blue one, maybe the greenish one. The red is too bright for me. Maybe if it was dark red.
Can we get the cooking guide over in the states? i really would like to have that.... Also i liek the blue-ish DS. Got my silver DS brick though :P
Wow those are really sharp colors.I want one...too bad my sister has a pink DS and I just play through the games she gets...that way,she could use my 360 and I use her DS:)But seriously,if my sister didn't have a DS I would go and buy a DS right now cuz it's cheap AND those colors r convincing,not to mention the games are pretty good.Especially Zelda and Pokemon Diamond.I didn't play Assassin's Creed DS yet,all I know is that the 360 and PS3 version is amazing.GH for DS is going to kill,watch the trailer.Personally,I like the DS more than the Wii.
Time to get a new ds mine is messed up a little bit and needs and upgrade so I will probably get a red or green one. They look pretty good.
So tired that soon the hunk-tassle-dog-king will see that all he has is time and well planned buildings. Are we really to think that this light will shine on those who covet all the little pretty balls that roll back and forth around the orange encrusted dome that so many built with anger and will oiled currency!! i think not my fine spiked tree!! Lets all think that lizards lie in quite fun, all to reap the rewards of sound choices and sloppy satire.
Europe also had pink. But yeah, now seeing the lists for Japan/US, I think Europe once again comes off poorly from a Japanese company Then people complain they need to merger to boost sales? Wasted opportunities
If only Nintendo can finally realize that every region should be treated EQUALLY and that every color should be available in EVERY region
Arrrgghh.. Now I have to pay tons of $$$ to get my sister the turquoise color on eBay! Hopefully she doesn't read this before her birthday.
DAMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN I LIVE IN UK (GREAT ILL GET THESE COLORS) BUT I JUST BOUGHT A CRIMSON/BLACK ONE FROM THE STATES LAST MONHTH ARRGGGGHHH
i don't understand why nintendo does this. make certain colours for certain regions. and why does north america get the ugly two coloured version? release the ALL red and ALL blue version here! cooking guide is exactly the type of thing that i wanted. a compact cook book without the page flipping.
Nintendo: Quit this "region-specific colors" BS. Just release all the colors everywhere. I want a sweet silver DS lite, but that's right, I can't get one because I don't live in Japan.
Oh that green one looks SO GOOD! I wish they were coming out here in the states. Why can't every region have all the different colors?
Oh wow that Cooking Guide sounds kinda neat actually. Thanks to the wonderful capabilities of region-free gaming on the DS, I maay consider picking that one up. Curious though if it has the ability to download new recipes, because if it does it could be a little handy tool for most. I wouldn't pay 59 dollars for it though. If I could get it for 30 or less I'll consider it.
Yeah but think about it, if Ninty is just coming out with new colors, what're the chances the rumors about the newly-designed DS are true?
What about the newly designed DS that is supposed to be announced this year? I figured it would be revealed this spring or summer so that they would be on the shelves by the fall. As for the colors? I like them, it gives variety. I still love my black one though.
