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.

Coming from Nintendo's financial briefing...

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe sold over a million copies within two weeks of its release in January 2019, and has continued to maintain a steady pace.

Initial sales of Yoshi’s Crafted World, released at the end of March, have like many of the other Nintendo Switch games released so far, outperformed that of past titles in the series. In addition, the percentage of female consumers is relatively high for this title compared to other Nintendo Switch titles, both in Japan and overseas.
