Nintendo has announced a new 'flare red' version of its latest handheld, the 3DS.

The red handheld will arrive there on July 14, reports AndriaSang, day and date with Star Fox 64 3D, a remake of a respected older Nintendo title. So far, only a Japanese release of the flare red 3DS is confirmed.

I'm still torn as to whether buy a 3DS now (for the upcoming games), or wait (1-2 years) for the next iteration of the hardware. Having been a DS XL user for (at least a year?) now, I find the 3DS screen unbearably small to use - a bigger screen, and improved battery life would definitely sell me.

The thing with 3DS is the lack of games and the stupid regional lock, which is a so last century policy. They don't have it on DS and GBA but then they have to put it on 3DS. Even PSP and PS3 don't have regional locks!
