Even though Switch is the focus when it comes to Nintendo hardware these days, 3DS hasn’t been entirely forgotten. The system is still being sold and there will still be games released on the dedicated portable next year.

Speaking during the company’s latest financial briefing, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that 3DS will continue to be sold as long as there’s demand. Furukawa also reiterated that 3DS has its own advantages compared to Switch thanks to its size, weight, and price.

Atlus have uploaded a lengthy gameplay video of Persona Q2 to their Youtube channel. The video contains footage from near the beginning of the game, showing the Persona 5 crew in the first dungeon of the game:

Best Buy has officially debuted their Black Friday ad, which will have Nintendo fans saving quite a bit of cash later on this month.

Attempting to contend with other retailers such as Walmart and target, many of the same deals found there for Black Friday are also being offered at Best Buy — including both the $299.99 Mario Kart 8 Switch console bundle and the $79.99 Super Mario Maker Edition Nintendo 2DS. In addition, fans will be able to save $40 on the Starlink Starter Pack, as well as 20% off on all Starlink accessories. Various Switch PowerA controllers and accessories will also be discounted by up to 40%.

We’ve included a roundup of some of the deals below.

Walmart has revealed a ton of deals that will be available to customers during Black Friday later this month. If you’re a Switch owner, be on the lookout for a number of good sales.

Walmart will have a number of titles slashed to $35, including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, ARMS, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Other highlights include Dragon Ball FighterZ for $25 and South Park: The Fractured But Whole for just $17.
