Jump to: navigation, search

This following is a list of case colors and styles that have been produced for the Nintendo 3DS family of handheld game consoles produced by Nintendo. Although the system initially launched with only two colors, its lineup has subsequently expanded to incorporate many more color varieties and limited editions, some of which are exclusive to various regions. As such, the list includes all color variations of regular Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS, as well as their larger models, the Nintendo 3DS XL and New Nintendo 3DS XL along with the Chinese version, the iQue 3DS XL, and the entry-level version, the Nintendo 2DS.
