Nintendo has officially ceased production on the New Nintendo 3DS in Japan. The official Japanese site for the smaller-sized New Nintendo 3DS clearly states in Japanese that “production has ended,” as the little box reads 生産終了 (seisan shuuryou). This applies to both the white, and black, as well as all Special Edition models of the New 3DS.
However, fear not! The New Nintendo 3DS XL remains in full production, as it appears Nintendo has positioned the larger handheld to replace its smaller counterpart completely.
