Nintendo 3DS was nowhere to be seen during E3 2018

Nintendo has been going hard at E3 the past couple of years, kicking things off with a special Direct presentation the leads directly into three days of livestreams.

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

Dear Nintendo: Look at this DIY 3DS-like phone

This Spring a developer by the name of Lexie Dostal hand-constructed an Android 3DS gaming phone. This device doesn't run 3DS games from Nintendo, but it does look a whole lot like a 3DS handheld gaming system.
