Nintendo has no plans to give up on the 3DS just yet

During E3 2019, the new president, Doug Bowser, told Time that the handheld console "continues to do quite well" and is still in demand from consumers and retailers.

I really love the library on the 3DS but man, playing on a handheld is rough for me nowadays. However, I'm 35 and an old man. I will say seeing the Fire Emblem: Three Houses gameplay lit a fire under my butt to play Awakening and I'm loving the hell out of it, pretty brutal game though.

The 3DS has one of the deepest/bountiful backlogs of any system tbh. Whatever genre you can think of, there's plenty of choices either with retail games or eShop exclusives.

Even in 2019 it makes sense to pick up one whether it's a New 2DS XL brand new or a used New 3DS XL from GameStop, since you have an instant opportunity to explore great games.

Gave birth to new genres like Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton too. Ever played Hotel Dusk: Room 215? It's an absolute gem.
