The Nintendo 3DS family consoles are no longer advertised on the official website of Nintendo USA, which now focuses exclusively on the 2DS line.
As reported by the careful Twitter user ” Akfamilyhome “, references to the 3DS are no longer present on the Nintendo.com portal. The images on the site show only examples of Nintendo 2DS, moreover, turning on the comparison section of the different portable platforms of the Kyoto House, we are shown only the technical characteristics of Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 2DS XL. Nevertheless, in a rather peculiar manner, the introductory wording ” See what Nintendo 3DS family can do ” remains on the portal. However, this change did not affect all of the Nintendo portals in the world. For example, Details of New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL continue to be present on Nintendo Italia’s official website.
The 3DS family has welcomed a wide variety of titles over the course of their long career, which over time have given rise to a truly valuable softeca. During April of this year, the Kyoto House confirmed that it no longer has any first-party games to announce for Nintendo 3DS and many iconic traditionally portable brands are ready to land on Nintendo Switch. Among these, after Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee, the main Pokemon series. Just recently, Game Freak showed the public one of the cities of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
