Get ready for a new color DS Lite. The crimson and black model will come with Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day, and a bonus carrying case for $149.99. The bundle hits stores Aug. 21.
Nintendo describes the color scheme thusly, reposted verbatim in deference to their awesome press release writer: "The top half of the new Nintendo DS sports a smooth, glossy Crimson, reminiscent of a dangerous shade of lipstick or a cherry-red sports car. The bottom is a matte black – an Onyx yin that complements the Crimson yang."
Any old how, a new color DS Lite is just what the handheld-videogame-doctor ordered...unless you're like us and you keep it gangsta with an old-style, DS Heavy, where the Ugly Blue top-half is reminiscent of a refrigerator in a drunk's house or the lips of a seizure victim. The bottom is an ugly blue--a slightly bruise-looking yin that matches the ugly blue yang perfectly.
