This is a list of case colors and styles that have been produced for the Nintendo DS line of handheld systems.
- The red Nintendo DS model, released in Japan on August 8, 2005, is part of a promotional offer that includes the game Jump Superstars.
- In October 2005, Nintendo released two new colors to North America: Teal and Pearl Pink (not the same Candy Pink as was released in Europe and Japan, but a tint identical to that of the Mystic Pink model released in Australia). These systems are bundled with the game Nintendogs Best Friends Version, as well as a bone-shaped screen cleaner. These bundles were released in Europe on October 7, 2005. In Europe, the pink DS included the Dachshund and Friends version of Nintendogs, and the teal DS included the Lab and Friends version of Nintendogs. These were priced at the same price as a lone Nintendo DS (£99). On that same day, the Nintendo DS received a price cut to £89.
- The Electric Blue was released in North America, initially bundled with Super Mario 64 DS, for the same price as a lone DS ($149.99) on June 30, 2005. One million copies were sold, making it the best-selling game during that time. As of February 27, 2006 Animal Crossing: Wild World is included with the Electric Blue system.
- The Mario Kart DS Pack was released in Europe on November 25, 2005, which contained a silver-colored DS and a copy of Mario Kart DS. The same Pack was available in New Zealand and Australia
- The Red Hot Bundle was released in North America on November 29, 2005, including a red and silver Nintendo DS system ("Hot Rod Red"), optional racing decals, a normal Nintendo DS wrist strap/thumb pad, a bonus checkerboard wrist strap (strangely, with no thumb pad), a Mario Kart metal charm, and a copy of Mario Kart DS. It also came with racecar decal stickers that could be placed on your DS. It is the same as the original red DS that debuted in Japan alongside Jump Superstars; the only difference is that the underside of the Japanese model is black, while the underside of the American model is silver.
- The Titanium Nintendo DS was released with a demo of the game Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt, on November 21, 2004, in North America and on March 11, 2005, in Europe. The bundle is no longer available in the vast majority of American and European stores.
- On June 22, 2008, a special edition Guitar Hero DS was released on online retailers to help launch the new game Guitar Hero: On Tour that featured the Guitar Hero logo on the bottom right. It was available to anyone for a limited time for approx. US $179.99. This also includes the game. It can still be found at the Nintendo World Store, for approx. US $129.99, albeit in very limited copies.
Loyalty, one-of-a-kind, charity and promotional units
- Five variants of existing Nintendo DS colors were produced for the Japanese online Super Mario Club. Each color has a wireframe of a character's face imprinted on the front cover of the system. There were 200 made for each unit. The designs include:
- Nintendo auctioned off three custom Nintendo DS systems for charity at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The systems went to Jay Mohr for $10,000, Poppy Montgomery for $2,500, and Alan Cumming for $1,500. Nintendo added money to the final bids, and a portion of the funds went towards victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake.
- Rapper 50 Cent ordered a custom-made Nintendo DS from Nintendo, featuring a khaki camouflage design, and the G-Unit insignia on the front cover. 50 were made.
- As a special gift, 55 people who attended the May 9, 2006, VIP party at the Nintendo World Store were able to get a commemorative E3 engraving put on the cover of their Nintendo DS.
- The winner of the Pokémon Journey Across America, Minh Ba Le, won a diamond-encrusted DS.
- Shortly before the system's official launch in Europe, a bundle was available on the Nintendo VIP 24:7 scheme consisting of a European silver DS system, a demo of WarioWare: Touched!, a copy of Super Mario 64 DS, and a T-shirt, in exchange for 1000 Stars and £129.99.
- An extremely limited edition was created and given to selected members of the press for the release of Advance Wars: Dual Strike. There were around 50 made but only a handful are known. It had a camouflage design, and was presented in a metal ammunition box with a copy of the game and a mug.
Publicly available limited editions
- Special dark blue Nintendo DS systems were released at Poképark in Japan and Wal-Mart in the US. The systems have the Poképark logo on the front cover, and a Pikachu silhouette superimposed over the right speaker grill.
- A light blue Nintendo DS, with a limited run of 1,000 units, was released in Japan as part of a joint promotional offer with Pepsi.
- Nintendo released a gold-colored DS that is exclusive to Japanese Toys "R" Us stores.
- A Nintendo DS with Mew has been released in Japan. It is tinted purple with the Pokémon lightly printed on the front and adjacent to the top screen.
- 50 white Nintendo DS units featuring artwork of characters from the popular anime Bleach were given away by Sega to commemorate the release of Bleach DS: Souten ni Kakeru Unmei.
