    I'm trying to think of someone who would buy this, and I'm drawing a blank

    I guess Gen VII Pokemon machine? even then, that plays on OG hardware

    it's like Nintendo has a wall full of different 3DS attributes varied by revision, and they're just throwing them together to see what can extend the lifespan

    I don't know why this gets me excited, but it does. And I like how the commercial for it on Nintendo's YouTube channel focuses so much on Sun and Moon's playability on it. This makes me feel less worried about Pokemon moving to the Switch anytime soon. Not sure why they're waiting so long to release it though.

    I should have seen this coming, but I didn't.

    I know, I just found it funny, that's all.

    This really doesn't indicate anything of the like. Of course they're going to use Sun and Moon to advertise a new 3DS model. Combined they're the second best selling 3DS game, behind only X and Y, but they're newer, so they're the focus. The showing off of sun and Moon here has no indication one way or another about Pokemon on the Switch.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old. It's an out-of-this-world adventure!
    Check it out!

    There's no correlation between the two. What other game would you use to advertise a new hardware reversion in the family?

    More or less. But I was expecting another hardware revision to tie in with Necrozma's game, and this should do it.

    That said, there really isn't anything logically to go beyond this, so this should be the definite end of 3DS line in the next two years.

    They can always release a regular New 2DS.

    The New 2DS has a very appealing design to me. If it had been before the Switch, I probably would have bought one. Too late now.

    The only 3DS family console I would consider buying now would be a "New 3/2DS Micro" if one were ever to be released. I love the Gameboy Micro for its very convenient, compact size. I can easily do soft resets in the Gen3 games using only one hand and I don't have a single pocket it can't fit in. I would love a smaller 3DS to serve the same purpose. My 3DS and 3DS XL look too bulky in dress pants and don't fit in some of my shorts pockets.

    I will definitely get a New 2DS XL, the design and colors are cool and the price is good. I was going to get a New 3DS XL, but will pick this instead, since I don't really care about the 3D.

    Jokes aside, I seriously expect this to cover 2018.

    Or at least a Micro variant.

    It's understandable. Children who aren't ready for the 3DS' 3D capabilities are probably missing out on the New 3DS' ability to play SNES VC games and built-in amiibo capabilities.

    Anyways, I have a feeling 2018 will be the final year for 3DS, since the Switch has handheld mode. Before they're done, I'm hoping for another pair of Generation VII Pokemon games and a remake of Donkey Kong 64.

    Thing is, there's a lot more going on inside of a 3DS than there was inside of a Game Boy Advance - among other things, you need a battery of a certain physical size to power all of those extra components. Maybe a few years of technology progress allows them to use slightly smaller internal components and maybe the design team can shave a few millimeters off each dimension, but ultimately the system can only get so small. And I'm not sure it can get a ton smaller than the original 3DS, which I believe remains the smallest design of the family.

    looks like it's launching on the same date as Miitopia and Hey! Pikmin here, which are the last first-party I.P.s confirmed for retail release

    that hinge, though

    Unfortunately XL consoles sell better for some reason.

    I wasn't really joking, to be perfectly honest. I imagine it will happen eventually.

    Neat. I wonder if Partners in Time and BiS remakes will be on Switch.

    Probably not as the two games you mentioned makes heavy use of the DS' dual screens (Superstar Saga was a GBA game so it is not too hard to create a remake of it on the Switch).

    ^I doubt that is going to be problem considering Switch and Wii U pad have the same screen size.

    Nintendo no longer offers repair services for the OG 3DS.
