Nintendo has further reiterated their commitment to the aged Nintendo 3DS handheld in their latest financial results.
“We will continue the Nintendo 3DS business by leveraging its installed base and rich software library,” Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said.
“We believe it is important to leverage the rich library of Nintendo 3DS series titles to drive sales with existing Nintendo 3DS owners as well as with consumers who recently purchased the Nintendo 3DS hardware, and are investigating strategies for doing so.”
He continued: “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.”
The company’s current lineup of Nintendo 3DS titles for this year and next year include:
- April – Dillion’s Dead Heat Breakers
- June – Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido
- July – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
- August – WarioWare Gold
