Nintendo Claims 3DS Support Extends Beyond 2018

In an interview given to IGN, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime shared the company's thoughts on bringing more Wii U games to Switch. "And we're greedy and we want Nintendo 3DS right alongside it". "It's going to require a mobile device and be delivered by an app".

Nintendo Switch Online is coming in 2018.

"The way we continue to make Nintendo 3DS vibrant as a platform is first we continue to innovate from form factor standpoint".

The concern is that Nintendo's first-party offerings, much as it was with Wii U, won't be able to carry Nintendo Switch.

Unfortunately, the Pokemon game for Switch, Metroid Prime 4, Yoshi, and Kirby didn't make it to the infographic, but there's still hope for at least one of them.

Both Pant and Kuldeep made their global debuts earlier this year but neither has played in one-day internationals so far. Both had a great Indian Premier League campaign in 2017 and the call ups might be a result of those performances.

I think we were all a bit surprised when Nintendo revealed the existence of a 2DS XL back in April, which is set for release on July 28 for $150.

While that does little to answer the many questions that remain regarding why the Switch didn't simply launch with Virtual Console, Fils-Aime's reassurances are more comforting when you realize that Nintendo has previously stated that they do not intend for the Switch Online game service to replace Virtual Console. Details were thin, essentially the only thing we got was a logo but it is clear that Nintendo wanted to use this opportunity to show it is listening, despite having no gameplay to show. However, the setup has still been labeled as cumbersome, especially considering Nintendo's competitors have provided a fully functional online communication system for a number of years now.

In all, Nintendo definitely appears to be listening to its fans when it comes to concerns around the Switch. If a user were to break their Switch by accident, all their saved progress would be lost, and there would be no way to recover them. We think that consumer is looking for essentially exclusively portable type of games and experiences.

We're aware of requests around cloud saves or file management, we're certainly aware of all the requests for legacy content, we're aware of consumers asking for ways to have multiple devices linked to one particular account, we're aware of all of those.

It literally is game by game, title by title, how we make that decision.
