Nintendo has confirmed via delistings from their website that they will only be selling the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 2DS XL, meaning that the New Nintendo 3DS XL is officially discontinued in North America.

Released in 2014 in Japan and 2015 in the EU and North America, the “New” line brought enhanced power, a C-Stick into play, better stereoscopic 3D, and more improvements. The New Nintendo 3DS was discontinued in 2017, but the New Nintendo 3DS XL was still in production.

Earlier this year with the introduction of the Nintendo Switch Lite, Nintendo said that the 3DS is still important to them in a sense. So, we might still see a few more games while the 2DS line slowly dies off.
