Nintendo still has a lot of money to be made from a plethora of 3DS games. A new "DS" console will help keep that pipeline open as much as possible.

I'm not really bothered by high end graphics, I brought my original 2ds to replace my ds and I liked the fact it didn't fold so no wires to gradually break and render the upper screen useless. I'm also a retro game fan (and big collector of 16 bit games: master system, mega drive, snes, ps1, gba, psp, ds - collect them all ) I prefer pixel games to 3d. The switch currently does not interest me and it would take a much lower price and a new animal crossing game to change my mind. Everyone is different and amidst the comments I just wanted to show my support for the older generations of consoles and handhelds.

The 3ds just feels like it is for people of lower income while the switch is for those not of high income. I want to think that nintendo truly cares for all classes of people so that is why they try to provide a good amount of entertainment for the gold monster that is the switch and the silver elf that is the 3ds.

Well I actually have a reason. Ive always wanted a 3DS because of the portable console and its amazing games on it but i would never get one because my dad hated the 3d. He said it would ruin my eyes, so im glad nintendo released it because now i have one now and im so happy

This is idiotic analysis bud: Nintendo does not strategize the Switch as being primarily a portable handheld. They've stressed this time and time again. So dropping support for the 3DS line or slowing down their pursuit of game development ont he console would literally be Nintendo exiting the handheld gaming market. Nintendo is dominant in the handheld gaming market, leaving the market would be idiotic. There is plenty of space right now for Nintendo to support 3DS as their portable and Switch as their main console for years to come. Both devices, in terms of both hardware and software, are selling gangbusters right now. They are not hurting each other, if anything the success of the 3DS has given people confidence in the Switch, and newcomers to Nintendo who have been absent since the Wii days and have come back in only recently are enjoying Nintendo so much they might be looking to pick up a 3DS as well. Nintendo has hit a groove with these two lines, they aren't cannibalizing each other at all, and Nintendo would have to be clueless to drop support for the 3DS right now.

A friend's 7 year old has put his 3DS through the wringer and it's still ticking, they bought it used and yeah it looks pretty rough but still works just fine; a Switch would not have held up. There is definitely a market, and will continue to be, for a less expensive but more robust portable that the DS lineup offers.

BOTW has outsold the Switch because it was also ported to the Wii U, unless you're talking about Switch copies sold

It is sort of a struggle especially when there is a portable and console to get games or both systems and I you have only one you can miss out on a lot. That is why I thought the switch would solve this problem because it is a hybrid. No more splitting developers, no more splitting consumers, and it is maybe cheaper or both since they don't have to worry about buying 2 things and buying games for both and developing for both and buying 2 developer kits. Not to mention, the 3ds is long lived, living through part of the wii, all of the wii u, and now part of the switch. I believed the switch would solve the problems I mention above but nope I guess not at all.

I think you should re-think saying "canada & northamerica" since canada is in northamerica. And by the way you're right, I dont play my 3ds again.

Darkone539 (6 months ago)
The 3ds family was 52% of Nintendo's income during the last shareholders report. Just let that sink in. Of course they aren't going to let it die. Phased out? Maybe but it's not going anywhere for years. It's also not a bad thing. The ps3/Xbox 360 got games well the generations moved on. If they do move on it'll be the same situation.

Why buy a 2DS XL instead of a Switch? Let’s see here.... - Half the price - Huge library of games - More compact/portable - Already own a PS4 for gaming on a TV that is wholly superior to a Switch (better performance, HDR, tons of excellent AAA games) - Never played Zelda anything so I have no nostalgia itch I’m dying to scratch and plenty of good Zelda games for DS and Wii if I want to jump in - No virtual console and no Netflix app yet for Switch

Is it just me who really wants at least the pokemon eShop virtual console releases to be on switch, I want to play on my much larger screen whilst sat back with my controller than looking at a relatively tiny screen with less comfortable controls in my opinion

There needs to be a new Rune Factory game on the Switch at some point. I still play Rune Factory 4, Pokemon, etc. It's even better since Silver was brought to the vc.

Dude, everyone has or had some type of a DS. Of course they will keep making it as its such a great item. Also its a portable console (smaller and lighter than Switch) which means games on the go. PS It has backwards compatibility with old DS and Gameboy (which are digital I believe) games

Nintendo corners the market on handheld console gaming but competition makes business thrive not to mention the verying prices mean more people from more demographics can use their products

The 2ds xl is not sexy its ugly As 💩 the new 3ds xl is better they just knew the 3d was just to expensive they wanted to make something cheap so they would of lose 💰. Plus kids will be find With the 3ds it's just bessnes reasons

DinosaurFilms (8 months ago)
I don't understand people asking for 3DS/DS backwards compatibility for the Switch. Those games are designed for a hardware device with *two* screens and would be awkward to display on the switch screen.
Reicconn (9 months ago)
I actually sold my 3ds when the switch came out, not just because of the gamestop ad, but because of the fact that no, I do not need two mobile consoles. The 3ds library has gone downhill and all of the games seem to just be playing one silly excuse of a leap-frog.

Seriously don't understand how people hate 3D on the "New 3DS"... games like Zelda Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros and even Pokemon Ruby Sapphire (Fuck you sun and moon for having no 3d) look so damn beautiful with 3D enabled. Yes, I hate low framerate, I play pc games in 165 fps on my 165hz monitor for god sake. Ye sure it is a good product for someone who is below 6 years old and doesn't own any of the consoles but the "New 3DS" is so much better... It has glorious 3D ffs

I knew I was going to buy a switch as soon as I got my hands on one and with that said I bought Zelda before I bought my switch. I also bought two pro controllers and now I have a switch coming with MARIO Kart.
lord volt (9 months ago)
did everyone forget about the XDS what place will that have with the switch they said it could play wii u games and is also portable thats why i am questioning how long the switch will last
MeMyselfAndKgore (9 months ago)
I understand that this video is considered old at this point but I got a switch recent-ish. Since then I've brought both my ds and switch literally every where. I was in the middle of playing alpha sapphire when I got my switch and haven't played it once. It died in my bag and I charged it only for it to die again. I have a charging cord for it so if I want to play it bad enough I can but I haven't

Rudy Acosta (10 months ago)
Didn't Nintendo say that the switch won't in any way replace the 3ds/2ds Nintendo is doing what they always have one home console one handheld console, plus I feel like the switch was supposed to be more for home " but the fun doesn't have to stop at home if you have to go on a trip and dont want to wait to play that game you have waiting at home then just take it with you" or some thing of that nature. so I feel like they want you to have that what like 3 or so hours on that home console but then have that actual handheld for more long portable travel like air travel

With Zelda, disagea 5, Mario kart 8, and a few smaller titles like Minecraft, and binding of Isaac (just bought it, first time ever playing it and must say it's fucking crazy addicting), and now soon to be Splatoon 2, I'm fine with the software choices for now. pokken comes out in September as well, followed by Mario in October. that's pretty dope.

I actually really appreciate the new 2ds because I don't use the 3d feature at all. So it'd just be more money spent on a feature that I'll never use. I certain I speak for a lot of people when I say that I don't use the 3d feature. But who knows... I could be wrong.

Darkshoe (10 months ago)
The Switch did not come to replace 3DS, Nintendo is traditional and always has a portable and an active console. For me, 2DS is a great opportunity, I'm in a country without official Nintendo representation and the price are good.

J_ Accel (10 months ago)
the reason it's good because almost every 3ds breaks via hinge and this muthafucker most likely will be fixed the main problem with the ds family. I've had every ds and all broke via ONLY hinge it's retarded and also there's a bsod( black screen of death ) issue where it powers on but only shows the backlights on 3ds (all but instead new 3ds has a blue screen) with this new 2ds xl , it'll be the last chance to prevent all these problems. also the circle pad can be broken too easily happen to me in smash...anyways it's not me being "rough" I take care of my shit case closed buy the "new" 2ds XL.

Of course Breath of the Wild sold more than the switch, it's on the Wii U.
Salesi Teisina (10 months ago)
I wholeheartedly agree with you. What's the point to keep making games for the inferior 3ds/2ds when you have a hybrid console from the SAME company that is by miles superior and supposed to change the standards of handheld/portable gaming with home console graphics. Imagine pokemon moon or sun with switch graphics, what's the point to keep an inferior handheld system making exclusives like pokemon. Why hold back their flagship hybrid console from grade A+ handheld first party Nintendo titles because of how successful their handled division was compared to their 8th generation home console that was the failed Wii U. You have made a hybrid console worthy of being your flagship machine. A Hybrid that replaces the WII U and 3ds/2ds, combining both divisions into one whole. At the end of the day I feel it's just a waste of resources and developers talent to channel into the 3ds/2ds when they can focus on the bigger picture that is the switch. It's evident Nintendo saw no need in the Wii U. Now they need to finish off the 3ds/2ds and focus on the success of it's hybrid pioneering console. I'll finish off with logical words for you. NINTENDO SWITCH SUPERIOR!!! NINTENDO 3DS/2DS INFERIOR!!!

Jake Choules (11 months ago)
The CEO of Nintendo America has explained this; the switch is expensive and aimed at adults, the 2ds XL is cheap and aimed at children. They are releasing many consoles for different price ranges - £70 2ds, £130 2ds XL, £180 new 3ds XL, £280 Switch. Also, if a console is still selling an incredible amount of units with each new version and games when it comes out then why would Nintendo stop making games for them?
Pyra (11 months ago)
It was pointless for them to release the new XL
Kirra McDowell (11 months ago)
I find it a very shitty move on their part tbh. I'd prefer games to be ported to switch.

CecDog3 Gaming (11 months ago)
or it can be just because kids who cant handle 3D were not getting the new features of the *New* 3DS, and were getting left out. No? Just me? Ok.

They should sell a bunch of extra crap so you can play your Wii U games.
