It doesn't need any new games. Wonder why at this point all the 3ds is getting ports and remakes of previous Nintendo games?

When did Nintendo say that the switch is the new 3DS? From what Reggie says. It isn't. https://m.ign.com/articles/2017/06/15/e3-2017-nintendo-will-support-3ds-beyond-2018

The 3DS was getting remakes since it's release. I don't get your point.

Be at least another 3 years before it does.

The 3DS has 75 million active users vs the switch at this point which is only over 20 million active users.

Wouldn't be smart to axe it off in near future.

Though i personally reckon that it should have an app released on the eshop to have the 3ds be used as another controller for the switch like it was used for Sm4sh Wii U.

Nintendo is still dividing up its releases between the two consoles, albeit one is getting far more involvement from Indies at the moment...
They were forming a circle, red-eyed, passing over a large marijuana cigarette ; I was wiping my eyes frantically to fit in.

Part of Reggie's job is to lie to the public before an official announcement is releases. It doesn't mean everything he says is lie it just means maybe he can't talk about it yet.
Sarcasm is my basic function.

The switch is not the new 3DS, and no, the 3DS will not be shutdown until 2025.

Yep, the 3DS will be shut down "soon" of course this "soon" has been said since the Switch's initial release, but any day now this "soon" will come and no one will be able to use their 3DSes anymore since Nintendo will send out code to make all 3DS systems non-functional and instead only display a message saying "buy a Switch as it plays all your DS and 3DS games."

The indie eshop games are drying up. The regulars like Lightwood and Circle have had no new releases in ages. Atlus seems to be the last major 3rd party company left. I suspect 2019 will be the last. I suspect Switch will be downsized to be more handheld friendly, it should not be that hard to do. I would not be shocked if It was released next Fall.

Why would Reggie lie about the Switch not being the new 3DS???
