Nintendo 3DS production will continue, despite Switch success

When the Nintendo Switch first launched in March, many were left wondering about the fate of the Nintendo 3DS. After all, the 3DS had been Nintendo's main money maker for a few years at that point, but being a portable console, the Switch seemed to accomplish much the same thing.

Nintendo Switch just hit its most impressive milestone yet

At this point, you probably don't need me to tell you that the Switch is selling well. Though there may have been some apprehension from gamers when Nintendo first revealed that it was working on a new console - then codenamed the Nintendo NX - that was quickly washed away when we saw what it could actually do.

Nintendo Switch “Golf” tribute to Iwata is now gone

It wasn’t meant to last. It was probably never meant to be there in the first place. Fact is, we’ll never know of if the super hidden “Golf” emulation in the Nintendo Switch was something Nintendo planned on as an Easter egg or if someone snuck it in without the company noticing it. The latter might be more likely as a recent update to the Switch’s firmware has apparently removed the game that was hailed by some as a heartwarming tribute to the late Satoru Iwata.
