Nintendo of Japan ceases production of standard New Nintendo 3DS models

Nintendo of Japan ceases production of standard New Nintendo 3DS models”

The standard size New Nintendo 3DS is no more in Japan. "All production ended", is the only thing it says. The New Nintendo 3DS XL, the New Nintendo 2DS XL and New Nintendo 2DS are all still in production. Having only launched in 2014 to initially weak sales, which improved after a quick price cut, the New Nintendo 3DS was quickly usurped by the larger and more popular New Nintendo 3DS XL.

This likely has nothing to do with the success of the Switch, as Nintendo of Japan has traditionally been the first to discontinue older hardware models when replacements are announced. With over 66 million units shipped as of March, the 3DS family is still doing strong.

For now, it looks like the company is slowly going to focus heavily on the Switch. Now let us all embrace our New 2DS XL overlords.

As of this moment, the end of the New 3DS has been limited to just Japanese territories with the Nintendo North Bend manufacturing facility in Atlanta, North America, still presumably creating the system.
