The 3DS and 2DS models are also saying goodbye, with production completely shut down by the company.
All editions of the 3DS handheld are retired by Nintendo. The company has announced the removal of the devices on its Japanese website, and the move will also affect the New 3DS LL, New 2DS LL, and 2DS models, respectively. The company still sells the equipment in some regions to the extent of its existing inventories, but will stop production in all cases. The 3DS was introduced ten years ago, and several releases have come to light in recent years, with a total of more than 75 million owners worldwide. Unsurprisingly, the company will now focus entirely on Switch, of which it has sold 61 million by the beginning of this summer.
