Nintendo ends production of New 3DS in Japan

Without saying much more, the Nintendo website mentions that the production of the New Nintendo 3DS is ending, so it's time to look at another console.

New Nintendo 3DS LL (XL) models are still in production, however, and the New Nintendo 2DS XL has just launched today in the region. The internal components are probably better being used in the New 2DS consoles. It wouldn't be surprising to hear production for that particular model of the 3DS will begin phasing out all over the globe. While western plans are unclear, the Nintendo US Store has no standard New 3DS systems listed, and the UK Store only shows remaining stock of limited edition bundles. For now, however, that hasn't been confirmed as the case. No such marker is found on the New Nintendo 3DS XL's page, however. Additionally, the original 3DS XL is still available for purchase. Indeed, in an E3 interview with IGN, Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime promised they'd support the 3DS family 'well into 2018 and beyond'.
