8 years is a pretty long life by console standards. Also how the system is doing in terms of sales and support is a better indication of its condition than a company's words.

i don't want it to die because if it does, they'll start porting just dance games to it

it would be amusing to ponder how they'll achieve a just dance game on a handheld.

just idea of waluigi fans wanting a waluigi game only for it to be some just dance wormware infesting a corpse of a console is both sad and hilarious

I wouldn't because I don't really like having the sane fans who just like their favorite characters getting seriously shafted, but I would lie if I wouldn't laugh the same way I laughed at Sonic Forces and the Sonic movie.

>TFW when no Pokemon Ranger 4

I would really like to see the big N squeeze a few more years out of the 3DS line or maybe even make a successor to it, but with the Switch being a hybrid of both a home console and a handheld makes it seem a little bit unlikely. At least Bowser's Inside Story DX makes for a great swan song to it's legacy.

I would have prefered a Mario Sunshine port. Would go perfectly with the Luigi's Mansion one.

Any upcoming first-party 3DS games announced besides Bowser's Inside Story and Kirby's Epic Yarn?  Because with those two games releasing within the next three months, and no word of any games after, this unfortunately might be it.

But even if it is time to close the curtains on the 3DS, it had a long run.  Besides, in my eyes it won't be truly "dead" so long as the online and eShop remain functional (yes, I say that the Wii is still alive until the 30th).

The 3ds eshop will probably live long because it's the same one as the Switch and Wii U ones. They are all unified or something.

It should have died two years ago.

Since the Switch is getting huge sales, I would say the 3DS needs to die.

The 3DS has probably already died.  There are no first-party games announced for it.  The fact that they're still shipping hardware units is not a bad thing no matter how you put it.

Still, the 3DS was never hurting the Switch's sales.  In fact, it's technically the other way around.  Not that it shouldn't be, really, but it's always sad to see a console die.  At least now Nintendo won't focus so much about shutting down 3DS homebrew...

Honestly, I just hope Nintendo keeps shipping the hardware until I can get a replacement one in July.

Yeah, I guess it's time to let go. Odds are, there's not gonna be an FDS until after the Switch is gone.

They stopped showing 3DS games last Direct. It's dead, Jim.
