Doug Bowser says Nintendo has no 3DS games to announce at E3, reveals what Switch titles he's currently playing

Sorry, 3DS fans

If you haven't figured it out by now, Nintendo's Doug Bowser wanted to make it clear. While Nintendo will continue selling the 3DS, they don't have plans to talk about it at E3 this year. He shared that sentiment in an interview with Time, which you can read a snippet of below.

At this point, we have no games to announce on 3DS at this show, and in fact we’re not really showing 3DS content here, because it is all about Nintendo Switch. But our 3DS business continues to do quite well. Retailers continue to support both the hardware and the software. And as long as there’s consumer demand for 3DS, we’ll continue to support it. In fact, we believe it’s a great entry point for young gamers. A 2DS at $79 with a game included is a great value proposition for a young gamer coming into the Nintendo ecosystem.

Bowser, and Nintendo in general, are all about Switch right now. There's certainly plenty of games to talk about on that platform! Wondering what Bowser is playing on his Switch?

Right now I’m playing — I’m looking at my Switch — I’m still diving deep into Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and trying to get through the game. I’m a bit of a completionist when it comes to platformers. I’m playing Cuphead right now, being challenged by Cuphead —


is quite obvious to everyone that 3DS is dead and Nintendo dont want to admit this.
