Nintendo pledges support for Nintendo 3DS in 2018 and beyond

During E3 2017 this week, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that Nintendo plans to support Nintendo 3DS throughout 2017, 2018 and beyond.

“The way we continue to make Nintendo 3DS vibrant as a platform is first we continue to innovate from form factor standpoint,” Fils-Aime told IGN. “So the New 2DS XL is just the latest for us in having form factor innovation. We know colors are a key differentiator, consumers love the variety of different colors. And also the larger screen and the different form factor in the 2DS family, we think is a going to drive and continue to drive the 3DS platform. We’re going to continue to bring new content, and that’s what’s going to keep this device vibrant and keep it going well into 2018 and beyond.”

“We say that it’s a home console that you take with you and play with anyone, anywhere, anytime. It really is meant to deliver that great home console performance, you just happen to be able to undock it and take it with you, which is a key innovation,” Fils-Aime added. “But look, in the end, what we want is we want the consumer to call it their device, right? Their preferred gaming device that they can play fantastic Zelda, Mario, third-party content, all of their favorite franchises brought to life on the platform. That’s what we want. And we’re greedy and we want Nintendo 3DS right alongside it.”

The company didn’t show many new games for 3DS at E3, but it did announce Metroid: Samus Returns and revealed Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon last week.
