Nintendo reiterated that it would continue to support 3DS as long as there is a market for the mobile terminal.
New President Nintendo of America Doug Bowser said 3DS still enjoys considerable support from consumers and retailers.
As long as demand continues, the company will continue to support the device. And just because the company focused on Switch during E3 2019, that does not mean that the handheld is on the verge of death.
"At this point, we have no games to announce on 3DS at [E3]and, in fact, we do not really show 3DS content here because it's all about Nintendo Switch, "Bowser told Time.
"But our 3DS business continues to perform well. Retailers continue to support hardware and software. And as long as there is consumer demand for 3DS, we will continue to support it.
"In fact, we think it's a great entry point for young players."
This is not the first time Nintendo has promised to continue supporting the 3DS family of systems. It's at least the fourth time, if we remember.
Bowser's comments reiterate those of Nintendo when Switch was announced, again in January 2017, and a few months later at E3 2017.
