Nintendo Discontinues Three Original 3DS Models in Japan

icewhite3dsNintendo axed three original 3DS models in Japan. Today we mourn the dearly departed Cosmo Black, Misty Pink and Ice White. It is survived by the remaining original 3DS colors — Gloss Pink, Light Blue and Metallic Red — and a plethora of special edition-themed handhelds available and yet-to-come.  I always thought Japan had too many hardware colors/themes anyway. It appears Nintendo felt the same way. After all, why focus on color variation when your product sells like hotcakes?
