Nintendo 3DS Official End of Production

Nintendo has officially revealed on their UK and Japan websites that they’re officially ceasing production of the 3DS console line, while the US website completely removed their pages. This end of production will also includes any device in the 3DS family, such as the 2DS and New 2DS XL. 

The writing was on the wall that the 3DS would be on it's way out when Nintendo released the Switch Lite. There has been little to none available in stores or online for the past year, in addition very few new games have been released. The only available system promoted by Nintendo was the 2DS Walmart Exclusive Bundle with Mario Kart 7 (which was $99 but has since increased to $144).

Hopefully that means that the Pokémon games that are playable on those systems will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. With the 25th Anniversary next year and a rumor of remakes from a reliable Nintendo Leak @nintendalert stating wait until next year after people complained about the Mario 35th Anniversary remakes. Only time will tell, I personally would like to see an emulator on the switch similar to the NES and SNES that exists today.
