While just about everyone is waiting on pins and needles for the inevitable NX launch announcement, Nintendo decided to drop a different bombshell likely to leave us all stunned, shocked, and amazed: This November, their 2DS handheld systems will now feature red and blue coloring (respectively) on the face and back, rather than just the sides.
I hope you were sitting down for that, because in 50 years you'll be telling your grandchildren exactly where you were when you heard this world-changing announcement. According to Nintendo canon, these new 2DS models are a result of Luigi getting his first taste of responsibility, and immediately peeing it right down his leg. (Honestly, he should have sent away for a typing wand to accomodate for his stubby fingers.)
While Nintendo's announcement didn't specify a street date, you should be able to find these slightly resdesigned systems in stores come November. And, to be honest, $79.99 isn't bad for a 2DS with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed from the get-go--especially if you've never owned the system or experienced over five years of really great games.
