Kimishima said, “…we think the 3DS can continue in its own form.”
Nintendo’s newly announced Switch is exciting, but begs the question: will the company ditch the Nintendo 3DS? The answer to that is no, at least judging by comments made by Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima during a recent interview.
The Nintendo 3DS lives, after the Switch was announced, loyal fans of the 3DS handheld were worried that their beloved machine would disappear and be forgotten, but that is not the case at least for now, the President of Nintendo, recently stated both will live on side-by-side, the Switch and the 3DS, well that good news of course for 3DS owners, but sad news for Wii U owners, as it seems for sure that console is going by-by next year with Zelda being one of its very last games to enjoy playing before being forced to 'Switch'.
To hammer down that point more that the 3DS lives on even with the Switch coming out in March 2017, the Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima released a long statement of upcoming 3DS games, and a picture of all the game logos for their big line-up over the holiday season for their Nintendo 3DS system, plus a reminder that the 3DS is priced perfectly for all games, young to old, male to female.
So there you go, don't worry loyal 3DS fans, be happy you will not be forced to Switch to the Switch anytime soon.
