Nintendo isn’t done with the 3DS.
Reggie Fils-Aime recently spoke to Gameinformer about the portable system’s future, and the Nintendo executive confirmed its place in the company’s strategy going forward.
“Here in the U.S., through May, it’s up 10 percent year on year. It continues to be a vibrant system,” said Fils-Aime. “The reasons are, for the target audience we are going after – parents with kids – we see this as a great first device for that five, six, seven, and eight-year-old. The portability, the ability for the hardware to take damage and survive the drop test, over a thousand games available with new ones coming, that’s what’s driving the performance. It becomes a gateway for these kids that turn 10, 11, and 12 to then jump on to Nintendo Switch. It’s a strategy that’s working, and we’re going to continue to support that platform. We have more games coming, and certainly into 2019, we see it as a key part of our business,” he added.
