No More Nintendo 3DS Games After 2018?
A lot of eyes are currently focused on the release of the Nintendo Switch this March, and though it's considered to be the successor of the Wii U, a lot of gamers are still curious about the future of the Nintendo 3DS. News has it that the company is planning to support the platform till 2018, and they still see a lot of potential with the handheld device.
Future Of The 3DS
In an interview with the Telegraph, Nintendo director Shinya Takahashi talks about the 3DS, and the platform still has a lot of potential with players. He says, "Certainly I think 3DS from a price perspective is quite a bit lower, and it's a system we've released a very large library for. I think from that perspective it's a very good system for kids to have as their first system. We still see a lot of potential for 3DS in that area. With that in mind we're thinking of games to release for 3DS not just in 2017, but in 2018 as well."
With all the games that are currently available for the 3DS, it's possible that Nintendo isn't quite ready to let go of the system just yet. After all, the Nintendo Switch, despite all the hype, is still waiting for its own library of games to grow.
Gaming Bolt also points out that the Switch doesn't have any backward compatibility (yet), so even with the console's release, the 3DS can still thrive with all the different games available for it. With that in mind, it's curious what kind of games will be released for the 3DS for the next two years.
Speaking of backward compatibility, it's been revealed that the developers are planning on giving the Nintendo Switch support for the Wii U remote post-launch. The reason for doing so is because the company is planning to rerelease some games for the Wii U on the Nintendo Switch, and two versions of a game are said to be available - an "enhanced" version for the Switch and an "original" version that can be played with the old Wii U remote.
Nintendo gamers are currently all ears for updates on the Nintendo Switch, and the release of the console is slated on March 3.
