Is Nintendo still going to make games for the Nintendo 3DS? If so, why?
With the rise of the Nintendo Switch came a whole new appreciation for portable gaming. The Switch is the first portable title, and gamers from all over are taking full advantage of this. But, the side effect is that the Nintendo 3DS is being questioned for its continued support from Nintendo. It made sense in a way last year as the 3DS has a bigger support base than the Switch, but in 2018, it still looks as though Nintendo is going to support it. Why?
Well, Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima has revealed the logic behind this in an interview.
“Nintendo 3DS continues to sell, so for now we hope consumers will embrace it together with Nintendo Switch. But as for what transpires in the future, that is uncharted territory.”
It’s a bold move, but it’s possible that Nintendo just isn’t sure how to advance the handheld market without infringing on what the Switch does. Also though, the 3DS sold 1.5 million units in December, which was its highest sales in a month since 2014. So maybe there’s no need for advancement just yet. We’ll have to see what happens next for the Nintendo 3DS.
