Nintendo stops production of the 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS first launched back in 2011, and has plenty of different variants throughout its lifetime. Now, it looks like the company is closing the curtains on the handheld’s story. And short of an explicit announcement, saying they’re no longer in production is about as clear as the message can get.

On the company’s Japanese and European website, Nintendo has put the “out of production” label on the handheld’s page, and all of its variants. On its US site, the company has scrubbed mention of the handheld entirely. It even went as far as redirecting its dedicated 3DS page back to the home page.

With the Switch, Nintendo was able to occupy space in both the home console and portable market, a reason that may help explain this decision to discontinue the Nintendo 3DS production.
