After surprising the world with New Nintendo 2DS XL, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that the company will continue to support the Nintendo 3DS family of systems with new games running into 2018.
“We will certainly be announcing new titles for the 3DS platform, and we’ll do that continuously,” Fils-Aime explained to IGN.
“Some things that will be announced at E3. There will be some that we announce after E3. For us, E3 is an important event but it’s not the one defining moment. Obviously, with Nintendo Direct, we’ve created means to speak directly to our consumer base. We want to provide news and information when we believe it’s most relevant.”
When asked whether that would mean that such support would continue in 2018, Fils-Aime confirmed that was the case.
