In a report from Siliconera, it has been suggested that Nintendo is planning to discontinue the sale of the Nintendo 3DS XL in Japan.
The larger version of the company’s 3DS handheld console has been widely successful, selling 234,000 units in Japan, leading some to wonder why Nintendo might want to pull it. t’s also no surprise though, that the release of the New Nintendo 3DS is the most probable reason for the change. The new console is better for gameplay with its dual analog sticks and trigger buttons and has already received great reviews since it was announced. The 3DS has performed better than its home console brother, the Wii U. The handheld is the most popular in its class, beating the more powerful PS Vita with it’s wider library of games.
