The Nintendo 3DS Post Nintendo Switch Launch


For you Nintendo, we want to give you the heads up that the Nintendo 3DS will continue to be produced post launch of the Nintendo Switch!!!

Flip and get the details on the Nintendo 3DS Post Nintendo Switch Launch…

The Nintendo 3DS Post Nintendo Switch Launch has learned via Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima, the Nintendo 3DS handheld console still has growing users and momentum, according to Bloomberg.

During a press conference today, Kimishima not only stated that consumers would realise very quickly that Switch is different from the 3DS, he also stressed that Nintendo is committed to supporting the existing handheld, which has now sold over 60 million units worldwide.

Here is what is being said about the Nintendo 3DS:

Kimishima confirms:

“Thanks to our software, the 3DS hardware is still growing. So that business still has momentum. And certainly rather than being cannibalized by the Switch, we think the 3DS can continue in its own form.”

GameTyrant writes:

I’m not shocked by the news, as it seemed a silly notion that the 3DS would somehow disappear in the Switch launch. There is still plenty of enjoyment left to be had in the console, although now that the system is entering year 5 of it’s lifetime…you’d have to think Nintendo is looking into the feature.

The DS, which is the most successful handheld console of all time, was switched out for the 3DS after 7 years. One would have to imagine there are already people plotting and developing concepts for what’s next for the handheld market for Nintendo. I’m not sure how they could follow up the 3DS, but I’m sure they’ll find a way!

Meanwhile, reports:

The 3DS has some big games on the horizon, including Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, Ever Oasis and Pikmin, so the firm isn’t quite ready to abandon it yet – despite the impending arrival of the Switch. It’s also worth keeping in mind that a new Pokémon game arrives on 3DS this year, and given that Pokémon X & Y and Pokémon ORAS have sold almost 30 million units combined, it’s clear that the system still has some life left in it. Whether or not we’ll see more AAA games announced during 2017 is another question entirely, though.
