3DS


 

Though Nintendo Switch sales are going strong, Nintendo isn’t ready to retire the Nintendo 3DS just yet.

In a recent financial results briefing published to Nintendo’s website, the company highlighted several upcoming 3DS games set to release this year, including Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, WarioWare Gold, Luigi’s Mansion, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, Dollon’s Rolling: Western: The Dead Heat Breakers, and Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey. However, the briefing added that there are more games set to release in the coming years once this batch of games is out.

“In addition to the titles currently on sale we have announced the coming release of the titles [listed above],” the text reads. “We are even preparing new software for release in 2019 and beyond. Our plan is to continue maintaining this business by taking advantage of new titles like these.”

Nintendo added that the Nintendo 3DS library currently includes over 1,000 titles, and stated that “we believe it is important to leverage the rich library of Nintendo 3DS series titles to drive sales with existing Nintendo 3DS owners as well as with consumers who recently purchased the Nintendo 3DS hardware.”

The report also states that over 72 million 3DS units have been sold. With such a large audience, it seems that Nintendo doesn’t plan to pull support any time soon.
