Yesterday we reported production for the compact New Nintendo 3DS system has ceased in Japan to make way for the New Nintendo 2DS LL.
Many are worried this will have an effect on the production of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in North America and other parts of the world. A representative of Nintendo of America has cleared up the air, assuring that’s not the case.
“This announcement does not affect Nintendo of America territories, as the model in question was only sold in limited quantities as special offerings. There are no changes to the sales status of New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS or the upcoming New Nintendo 2DS XL, which launches on July 28.”
So there you go, the Nintendo 3DS will continue to live on for years to come as long as the games keep coming.
