Nintendo Will Support 3DS "Well Into 2018 & Beyond"

During Nintendo's Treehouse stream after their E3 presentation, Metroid: Samus Returns was revealed as an upcoming 3DS game - a remake of the Game Boy title from 1991.

Nintendo of America President and Chief Officer Reggie Fils-Aime said in an interview with IGN at E3 2017, "We're going to continue to bring new content, and that's what's going to keep this device vibrant and keep it going well into 2018 and beyond".

Is the Legacy Collection in Switch's online service what Nintendo is replacing the Virtual Console with, or are we getting a Virtual Console itself eventually? Microsoft put all of their faith in one large announcement, whereas Nintendo produced many small, yet significant game releases, following-up on its new console announcement in March.

Asked about how digital sales compared to physical on the Nintendo Switch, Reggie revealed how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold well digitally, when taken as a percentage of sales Mario Kart 8 deluxe had more digital presence.

The Nintendo Switch is the ideal console for taking your games on the road, but if you want to connect it to a hotel TV for big screen gaming while travelling, you'll need to make room for its clunky dock in your suitcase. We think that consumer is looking for essentially exclusively portable type of games and experiences. Gamers play video games; everyone plays games and with toys.

Fils-Aime: I can't say there's a solution coming, but we do hear the message. And that's before we start talking about how Nintendo consoles are primarily aimed at younger gamers - exactly the kind of folks who are prone to accidentally dropping things. "We'll share it early", Fils-Aime added. It's going to require a mobile device and be delivered by an app. As long as the handheld is still selling, both in terms of hardware and software, Nintendo surely sees no reason to stop supporting the console, this is something that is very understandable given the company's presumably huge losses with the Wii U project.

"We wanted to make sure that it is a robust, well-executed online environment, and for the $20 annual subscription fee, the consumer says, 'This is a no-brainer". Metroid Prime: Federation Force released in 2016 on 3DS as a scaled back spin-off of Metroid Prime Hunters that most fans would rather forget.
