After nearly 10 years, Nintendo have announced via their Japanese website that all versions of the Nintendo 3DS has been discontinued. The consoles are still visible on the Japanese website, but a banner has been placed announcing that the production of the series of handhelds has been discontinued.

The US version of the website has also reportedly cleared any mention of the 3DS console, with there being only 6 3DS games listed available for purchase.

With the Nintendo Switch now in full swing and taking sales by storm, it was only a matter of time before it became Nintendo’s primary focus. So if you don’t own one of these 3DS handhelds, now is the time to get your hands on the last remaining few available.
