RUMOR - Nintendo asking retailers in Spain to clear out 2DS stock by Summer 2019

Out with the old, in with the new?

The 3DS isn't doing so well, and Nintendo has been open in saying that the platform declined quicker than expected. Nintendo has pledged to continue support, but it seems like that support won't last too long.

Rumor has it that Nintendo is asking retailers in Spain to clear out their 2DS stock, and they'd like to have that done by the time Summer 2019 rolls around. That fits in nicely with the rumors of Nintendo releasing a smaller Switch redesign sometime this Summer. Could Nintendo want the 2DS stock cleared off shelves in order to make room for this rumored Switch revamp?

Oh come on, Nintendo! Just confirm the Switch lite and LX already. It's getting a bit too obvious now.

Did we not just read that Nintendo had NO plans for a smaller version?

From the Verge: "As a general rule, we’re always working on new hardware and we will announce it when we are able to sell it,” the company’s CEO Shuntaro Furukawa said during today’s earnings call, “but we have no plans to announce that at this year’s E3 in June.” The big E3 gaming event is scheduled to begin on June 11th."

That's an incredibly specific statement, and it doesn't at all say no new hardware this year. It says no hardware announcements at E3, something no one expected in the first place

No. We only read them say that they won't be showing it at E3. The fact that they didn't deny it is all the confirmation I need. They did a similar thing back in 2012 with the 3DS XL and they unveiled it to the public shortly after E3, just in time for the launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2, just like the DS Lite was first shown and released alongside the original New Super Mario Bros. So I can absolutely see them unveiling a new Switch revision in time for Super Mario Maker 2.

Even the Nintendogs on the street know what's happening here.

Maybe Nintendo is going to release a Switch that is 1D.

This is bad. I mean..sure there's always modding to support the consoles but the DS family is different...especially the 3DS.
