Last week, we reported on the news that Nintendo would be entering the process of sunsetting its DSiWare service, reflecting the end of the official sale of digital games on DS consoles. This news didn't come as a huge shock given the age of the service and with a new console just on the horizon, but it nonetheless was some mildly poignant news to receive. Now – if certain rumours are to be believed – it seems that Nintendo is also winding down with production of physical games for the DS.
A Canadian retailer called Video Games Plus just recently broke the news on Twitter, mentioning how Nintendo is stopping production of DS games across the globe. Of course, this is to be taken with a grain of salt until Nintendo itself comments on the issue, but it wouldn't be an entirely surprising development given that the 3DS – its successor – is likely well into the latter half of its own life cycle.
