It was rumored for months that Nintendo was thinking about merging its strong handheld market with its sagging console market, and with the reveal of the Switch — a console that has its own handheld detatchment — we can assume their DS line of handhelds has reached its end, correct?

Paper Mario: Color Splash Was Accidentally Leaked By Nintendo Last Night

by Peter Paltridgeon September 23, 2016
