I guess when I see a console released with the name "New" in reference to its processing power, I expect to see a line of software released for the "New." Everything else would be backward compatible. Nintendo, unusually, when it comes to something new, never marketed it in that way. It might have been that the tech was released too late. No one actually took advantage. Maybe they were busy with the Switch. And no one cared anymore. If that was the case then the 3DS was dead at that point. And that was my gut feeling. It was dead before release. Nintendo keeps trying to encourage hope saying, behind freshly painted cardboard masks, "We are still supporting the 3DS. Everything is okay. Don't worry."
"Buy the Switch but you can still play your 3DS. wink, wink"
I really enjoy "Fire Emblem Warriors." I haven't fully gotten into it yet but "Xenoblade Chronicles" does seem promising. I am looking at "Runbow" but have yet to pick it up. Not sure what else is worthy to purchase. Any recommendation are welcome.
Yes I know the Switch is portable, but it is just not as portable as the 3DS.
