Nintendo ending repair service for the 3DS and 3DS XL in Japan
Nintendo is further phasing out the 3DS and 3DS XL in Japan. After next month, repair service for both models will be ending.
Nintendo explained on its website that it has become difficult to obtain the necessary parts. All color variations of the 3DS (CTR-001) and the 3DS XL (SPR-001) will be affected. However, repairs will continue for the New 3DS, New 3DS XL, 2DS, and 2DS XL.
March 31 is the final day for 3DS and 3DS XL repairs in Japan.
