Nintendo Discontinues Production of Regular New Nintendo 3DS in Japan

Nintendo Switch Stock Update Report For July 14

As of December 31, 2016, the standard New 3DS has sold 2.49 million units worldwide while the New 3DS XL has gone on to be the model of choice with 9.82 million units. The New Nintendo 3DS, with additional RAM, more shoulder buttons, and a second analog nub over the original system-will no longer be produced for the Japanese market, confirmed the company on its Japanese website. This is undoubtedly because we're now on the New 2DS XL - there's just too many cooks in the kitchen.

This is the beginning of the end for the 3DS.

No word yet if this impacts the handheld outside Japan. Despite numerous promises from Nintendo that the Switch would not be the successor to the 3DS family, the speculation about their relationship is still earning a side eye from some tired consumers.

In the past, Nintendo has often made official announces about hardware production ending in similar notices.

Jaguar E-PACE Does an Actual Barrel Roll
Keeping in mind the E-Pace skips out on a stripped-down front-wheel drive model, that's still a lot of scratch for a small SUV . It will take on the might of the Range Rover Evoque , Audi Q3 and BMW X3 - and you wouldn't bet against it coming out on top.

Nintendo has been reducing its focus on the 3DS line's stereoscopic 3D capabilities for years now. Much like the other gaming giants in the Big Three, Nintendo has moved to a system that favors three options for one console.

The New 3DS has ceased production according to this page when translated.

The 2DS XL is scheduled to launch in America on July 28.
