Japanese Nintendo is reporting that production has ended on the New Nintendo 3DS.
The system didn’t sell as well as the New Nintendo 3DS XL, as that will now be the sole model of New 3DS on the market. Additionally, the original 3DS XL is still available for purchase.
This is the beginning of the end for the 3DS. Although Nintendo likes to make us believe that they will support the handheld beyond 2018, with Switch selling well and hardware models being cancelled, it’s easy to see the fate of the 3DS.
