It's the question on everyone's minds at Nintendo pulls down its banners and starts heading home after E3 2018, is this it for 3DS? While Reggie has been adamant from Switch's Day One that he will continue to support the 3DS throughout Switch's lifetime, this year's gaming expo certainly didn't hold true to his promises. It might be time to start retiring the dual screen life we've all become accustomed to. That being said, there's still plenty of life left in the pocket-sized console.
