These news come abruptly as Nintendo has not made any official statement regarding the discontinuation of the 3DS line. The company even held a mini Direct today but made no such statement. With the Wii U long discontinued and the 3DS following suit, Nintendo seems to fully focus on the Nintendo Switch. An upgraded model has even been rumored by multiple sources briefed on Nintendo's strategy for an early 2021 release.
While the 3DS might be discontinued, it will still live on with emulators and homebrews that will give it a second life. In the wake of this news, what's your favorite 3DS game/memory?
