For some time now, fans of Nintendo have debated what should be done about 3DS:
“Just let it die.”
“Leverage the fanbase! Make more exclusives!”
“KILL IT! KILL IT NOW WITH HOLY FIRE!”
In the March 8th Nintendo Direct, the Big N made their intentions clear:
3DS will continue to receive ports and remakes into 2019.
Absolutely perfect for the younger generation who aren’t old enough to have played the originals.
Captain Toad, Sushi Striker, Luigi’s Mansion, Mario & Luigi, not exclusives. All playable elsewhere. It services the install base but doesn’t lock out gamers who have moved on.
