New Nintendo 3DS Production Discontinued in Europe

Following on Japan's discontinuation, the handheld is now discontinued in Europe.

Posted By | On 14th, Jul. 2017

Nintendo’s decision to halt production of the New 3DS – that is, the base model of the updated 3DS handheld – started in Japan. However, Nintendo of Europe has now confirmed to GameSpot that the New 3DS has been discontinued in its region as well.

While this does leave Nintendo of America to provide confirmation of discontinuation, the New 3DS didn’t exactly “launch” in the region. It was only available in limited bundles. As such, we can probably consider the New Nintendo 3DS to be discontinued worldwide.

There’s no need to worry for the future of the handheld though. The Nintendo 2DS, New 2DS XL and New 3DS XL are still available to purchase. Nintendo also continues to support the handheld with games, the latest being Ever Oasis and newer releases like Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to come.
