More 3DS Franchises Will Come To Switch, Nintendo President Confirms
Nintendo has recently reaffirmed its intention to continue supporting Nintendo 3DS, one of the company’s most successful portable gaming console, despite its fall in sales. Well, the president of Nintendo Co., Ltd., Shuntaro Furukawa, said that the Japanese company will launch more franchises of Nintendo 3DS on Nintendo Switch to convey the appeal of Nintendo Switch Lite, which has sold 1.95 million units in its first 11 days.
As you all know, Nintendo 3DS is practically at the end of its life-cycle, since this year there have hardly been two outstanding titles for it. Therefore it is logical that to take advantage of Nintendo Switch they are trying to give a second chance to various titles already present in 3DS and that for whatever reason they did not finish selling enough, or simply want to take advantage to sell more units of them (as they have done with Wii U).
Soon we will receive a clear example of this movement with the arrival of Layton’s Mysterious Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition to the hybrid console, a title that was released in 2017 on the small portable of the Big N and that it will arrive in its most complete version, loaded with news on November 8.
What do you think of this decision? What 3DS games would you like to see on Switch? Let us know in the comments below.
The result is encouraging for Pokemon games coming next month. Nintendo chief Furukawa said company would make more 3DS franchises available on Switch to convey appeal of Lite.
