I finally got Twilight Menu++ working properly on my N3DS this last week. It's the dream. Once I upgrade the micro SD card from its current 64gb one I'm gonna have so many sweet sweet games I can carry round in my pocket.

3DS will never die.

Yeah, it's dead.

But.....I've been playing mine a lot the last week or so. Replaying games I haven't played in a long while like Zelda ALBW and Samus Returns. I think I might get into Bravely Default after, I never got around to it before.
The 3DS might be dead, but I love it. I forgot how much I really love the 3D effect and wish the Switch had the option too.

My 3DS (which I recently swapped out for a N2DS) has been having something of a renaissance lately — the sheer volume of games on it, plus the back catalogue of backward-compatible DS games will keep my interest for years to come

It's time to add more Japanese 3DS exclusives to expand my games library. 😀

@Anti-Matter Japanese exclusives, that sounds good what games would the Japanese exclusives games be?

@Ninfan
So many.
24 titles at least.
On my list, mostly my Japanese 3DS games are from Nippon Columbia games such as Pika Pika Nurse Monogatari, Wannyan Pets Shop, JS Girls Cake Shop Monogatari, Sumikko Gurashi games, etc.
Also, some girlie games such as AKB48 + Me, Miracle Tunes, etc.
Almost all of Japanese 3DS games on my list are Girlie games.

I guess you will frowning your face to see very unusual titles i have mentioned.
My gaming taste is absolutely different with majority users here.

Top 8 Konami's Rhythm games:
1. Dance Dance Revolution
2. Para Para Paradise
3. DrumMania
4. Beatmania IIDX
5. Pop'n Music
6. KeyboardMania
7. Martial Beat
8. DANCE EVOLUTION

The New Nintendo 2DS XL is currently the only model, and it's getting more difficult to find brand new. We've only gotten a handful of minor games on the eShop in the past six months. The 3DS is discontinued in all but an official announcement by Nintendo. The eShop will likely stay open in most major markets until at least 2022, if not 2023.

@AndyD The eShop is still up on 3DS. If you live in Central or South America (except Mexico and Brazil), the 3DS eShop will close on 31st July, but until then it is still available. As far as I know, they are no plans currently to close the eShop anywhere else beyond 31st July.

Since your profile says you live in USA, yes, the eShop is still available and will continue to be until Nintendo says otherwise. Happy gaming!

Now, I am going to go back to my own "dead" console and play Bowser's Inside Story.

EDIT: Added link for detailed list of areas closing 31st July 2020.

Signature, huh? Where do I sign?

Where I live you can sometimes still buy a 2DS XL in a toy store but there are no games to be found for it anymore. You really need to go to shops that specializes in videogames or second hand products. The Eshop is still functional but you would think now would be a perfect time to get your hands on the system for cheap and get some games for cheap.

It's sad really but expected, since everything physical gaming related started to have a smaller presence in stores here. Most people buy these copies on the internet, physical and digital.

I still love mine 2DS XL and tried to get most games I am interested in before this happend. Last thing I finished few months back was Bravely Default and I might start a playthrough of Bravely Second soon. My 2DS XL will still see hundreds of hours playtime before I put it away.

Here in Ireland you can still buy a 3DS from some local stores but they're rare and more than likely you'll have to shop online for one unless ofc you're willing to make do with a second hand one. The 3DS may be at the end of it console life cycle but I don't think it's going to die as such anytime soon considering its popularity still, well at least for now.

it means it's dead if they dont sell new consoles anymore though...

How long until the 3DS dies? Depending on the model, game in use, whether the 3D effect is on, wireless running, etc., usually anywhere from 3-5 hours.

How long until we all die from this Covid BS? I don't know about you guys but I'm getting off this planet! Just as soon as somebody invents a real working Tie fighter that is!

My question doesn’t fit into this thread perfectly, but it’s relevant all the same.

As you probably know, Nintendo hasn’t released a game for the 3DS in over a year and their support of the dedicated handheld has concluded. This is due to first-party titles such as the Bowser’s Inside Story remake performing terribly financially.

However, a rumour surfaced last year that Nintendo had more 3DS games in development such as a New Style Boutique sequel and a new Fire Emblem remake, but they scrapped them upon discovering the sales figures of recent releases.

I’m rather curious now: what do you think some of these other undisclosed titles were and how long do you think Nintendo would have continued 3DS support if the BIS remake and others performed decently?

@NintendoWiiDS If the other remakes and ports of the 3ds were to perform decently I'm still pretty sure that Nintendo would focus on the switch almost exclusive. At most just a few more games would've been ported to the console imo.

Good... good

It will work forever if we know how to build it.
