New colour and features coming for Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo has announced that a new colour and a host of extra features are on the way for its high-tech Nintendo 3DS handheld console.

To celebrate one million 3DS sales in Europe, the gaming giant will be releasing a metallic red version of the next-generation portable console on September 30th 2011.

This will be followed in November by the introduction of a system update that adds 3D video recording functionality, allowing users to create their own short 3D movies that can be viewed without any special glasses.

Meanwhile, fans of the console's in-built StreetPass challenges will find that a range of new content is also set to be added.

Nintendo 3DS has experienced a boost in popularity in recent months, thanks to the recent price cut and the launch of top titles such as Star Fox 3D.

The console's software library will be bolstered further in the lead-up to Christmas with the launch of the eagerly awaited Super Mario 3D Land in November, followed by Mario Kart 7 in December.
