In the Nintendo Switch era, Nintendo has stubbornly continued to support the 3DS with many games, and some fans are quite upset with that.
One game recently released for Nintendo 3DS was Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story – Bowser Jr.’s Journey, an enhanced remake of Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story for DS.
Game Informer asked AlphaDream producers Yoshihiko Maekawa and Akira Otani why they decided to bring the game to 3DS instead of Switch, and they said it has to do with the timing and also maintaining the dual screen gameplay.
Maekawa: It has to with the timing for it releasing on 3DS as opposed to Switch.
Akira Otani (producer, Nintendo): We did think about Switch, but we wanted to maintain the gameplay using the dual screen of the original. That’s the main reason we decided to port to 3DS.
What do you think of their reasoning?
