I love my 3DS and i like that there are a bunch of games coming out for it this year and Q1 2018 but I'm getting sick of this.
The 3DS is 6 years old now and it has more than proven itself to be a fantastic handheld, seriously, perhaps my favorite handheld of all time it may not be as successful as the DS but still a worthy successor unlike WiiU is to Wii. But enough is enough the Switch is supposed to unify console and handheld experiences and as long as Nintendo keeps getting a boner from the 3DS and eventually releases a 3DS follow up it's going to alienate the Switch owners because....
Since Nintendo has virtually NO competition other than smartphones as dedicated gaming devices Nintendo will basically be competing with itself: cheaper handheld device mostly aimed at children vs an expensive console mostly aimed at children... Guess who will win? Another WiiU vs 3DS situation where 3DS gets all the good stuff and WiiU gets shit.
Now I know that this may all be PR and it's actually another "third pillar" excuse from Nintendo like what they said during the GBA - DS days but really it seems like Nintendo is still not sure whether Switch will do all that well which is worrisome to say the least. Switch will obviously not be another WiiU but we also don't want it to be another Gamecube. I just want Nintendo to focus on Switch not 99% but 100% it's time to step it up and learn from past mistakes. Prove us that you care about your fans and that you're not lazy nor imcompetent.
3DS is awesome but it's time to let go.
