Apparently, Nintendo wants to speed up things after keeping the new line a secret for this time.

The new console will have a deep blue top and a black lower shell, resembling the color scheme of the Brain Age 2 pack (red top/black shell).

The Cobalt/Black console is the seventh color in the Nintendo DS Lite palette, which includes Polar White, Coral Pink, Onyx, Crimson/Black and the limited-edition Gold and Metallic Rose.

The Nintendo DS was launched back in November 2004. Since then, the console sold more than 17.6 million units in the United States alone. Last year, the Nintendo DS was crowned as the best-selling video game system in the United States: more than 8.5 million sold units.
