Nintendo announces end of New 3DS console production

Share

You won't be able to buy this in Japan anymore, now that Nintendo has stopped production. There's no word yet on whether production of the New Nintendo 3DS will be ending outside of Japan. Having only launched in 2014 to initially weak sales, which improved after a quick price cut, the New Nintendo 3DS was quickly usurped by the larger and more popular New Nintendo 3DS XL. As of December 31, 2016, the standard New 3DS has sold 2.49 million units worldwide while the New 3DS XL has gone on to be the model of choice with 9.82 million units.

Nintendo has been reducing its focus on the 3DS line's stereoscopic 3D capabilities for years now. Still, it'll be a shame to see the smaller form factor go.

Today Nintendo celebrated the release of a new product in Japan while also preparing to phase another one out in the same region.
