Nintendo has promised to continue support for the 3DS, stating that further games are on the way “in 2019 and beyond.”

In a financial results briefing, published on the Nintendo website, the company highlighted a number of previously announced 3DS games, set to release this year:

  • Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Dead Heat Breakers
  • Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido
  • Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
  • WarioWare Gold for 3DS
  • Luigi’s Mansion
  • Mario & Luigi: Bowsers Inside Story Bowser’s + Jr.’s Journey

In the report, the company stated:

“In addition to the titles currently on sale, we have announced the coming release of the titles shown here. We are even preparing new software for release in 2019 and beyond. Our plan is to continue maintaining this business by taking advantage of new titles like these.”

This will come as good news to 3DS owners who have yet to hop on board with the Switch – especially since the Switch isn’t truly portable in the way the 3DS is.

In other news, the Tatsumi Kimishima has stepped down as company president and been replaced by Shuntaro Furukawa.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
