Nintendo ends production on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems

It seems that the production run for the Nintendo 3DS has come to an end. Nintendo has updated its Japanese website to include that all units of the Nintendo 3DS (including the 2DS family of systems) have stopped production.
This has been released via a message on their Japanese site that roughly translates to “the production of the main body has been discontinued.” Upon checking the listing for all the models of the 3DS and 2DS (XL, *New*, etc.) a message pops up on all of them that translates to “all have been discontinued.”
So, it seems that the production for the 3DS has truly ended. Nintendo should make an official announcement about this soon, so this story will be updated then.

3DS user spends four years making an anime in Flipnote Studio 3D
YouTuber Mirror Panel-3 has put an incredible amount of work into making Flipnote Warrior, an anime created with the Flipnote Studio 3D application. It tells the story of a young girl’s life that forever changes following an unexpected encounter on a 3DS.
All animation was done within Flipnote Studio 3D. It was then colorized and edited on PC.
Flipnote Warrior won’t be released until December 4, but we do have a trailer. The teaser video can be found below.

Rodea the Sky Soldier to be removed from the Wii U and 3DS eShops this month
Through a partnership with Kadokawa Games, NIS America was able to bring Rodea the Sky Soldier to the west. Now, however, your opportunity to buy the game digitally is about to be over. NIS America has announced that Rodea the Sky Soldier will be removed from the North American and European Wii U / 3DS eShops on September 30.
Rodea the Sky Soldier will still live on through its physical release. Prices for the Wii U and 3DS versions are relatively cheap right now.
