Even with the imminent takeover of the switch, when do you suspect this handheld will die?

I foresee it going to 2020 myself. Reason for that is sales keep increasing, even alongside that of the switch. Developers are looking to develop for both the switch and 3ds.

What are your thoughts?

First party stuff will probably die off this year, but third party stuff may last until 2019, maybe 2020 at the latest.

I hope that Nintendo will launch main titles on the switch and use the 2DS for various Jrpgs and whatnot. Then the two systems would definitely coincide

Horrible idea. Let the 3DS die out and just have everything on the switch. No need to limit anything, no need for anything to coincide. It’s over. Let’s just move forward

No. Switch is a tablet at best for handheld mode. Unless there is an unforeseen handheld console, the 3DS shall live.

I dont see anything big past 2018. Its time a Pokemon game isnt released for the 3ds. Its reached its limits with Ultra Sun.

Who cares when it dies? It is home to some of the greatest games ever made. The library of games is very large and there is plenty of stuff to play. The people who want this system to die so badly cannot take that away from us. I see Switch as a successor......but it still needs some more retail games that are original and not ports of stuff I've already played on 360, Xbox One, and Wii U.

Nintendo will cut back support after 2018. Keep in mind 3ds/2ds is the only budget priced system on the market. Most consumers will not spend $300 on a console. 3ds will probably get it's last few release in 2019.
