It looks like the Nintendo 3DS is not ready to give up the ghost just yet, despite the Switch being groomed to be both a home console and a portable like the 3DS. As proof, how about getting a new videogame based on the upcoming anime film Doraemon: Nobita’s Treasure Island?
According to a news report by Gematsu, the 38th Doraemon movie, Nobita’s Treasure Island, will be making its grand debut in Japan in March 2018, and a new Nintendo 3DS game will be released as a way of promoting the movie. Although the exact release date for the game has not been released, it is understandable to expect that it won’t be too far off from the theatrical release. Otherwise it would be useless as a cross-promotional device.
