Where are the 3DS Games?

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 23, in the year of our Lord 2018--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing a concerning trend in the video game industry. This is something we predicted could happen. What is it exactly? The Nintendo Switch seems to be killing off the Nintendo 3DS. There are a handful of video games being released on the Nintendo 3DS in the last few months. Most of those are also on other systems like the Nintendo Switch. Of course we are looking at physical copy releases of games and not the digital downloadable games with their stigma.

We noticed local retailers have been shrinking their Nintendo 3DS retail space. As these shrink it starts to make us think the Nintendo 3DS is on its way out. Will the Nintendo 3DS be retired in 2018? 2019? 2020? Nintendo is throwing a few games at the Nintendo 3DS at retail this Christmas season. Other game developers are ignoring this system altogether. They are all jumping on board the Nintendo Switch. Plenty of other game developers are happy to release their games on the PS4 and/or Xbox One. As we continue to see fewer games we start to project down the future. The end for the Nintendo 3DS looks to be within sight.

It not time just yet to sound the church bells for the death of the Nintendo 3DS. I fear that we were right in our prediction about the Nintendo Switch. Maybe Nintendo is focusing on the Nintendo Switch and plan on coming back to the Nintendo 3DS later this year, or even early next year. I doubt that though. History of the video game industry teaches us these companies move on pretty quickly. They want you to buy their next thing. They want your money for whatever new idea they come up. Why? They get more profit that way. Rewarding customer loyalty went extinct in the video game industry with NEC. What do you think? Are you optimistic about the future of the Nintendo 3DS?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,
