It’s the end of an era, as the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U digital stores have closed down. However, Limited Run Games announced that it will have one final physical Nintendo 3DS release. However, there is a mosaic blocking out the cover of this last title.
In the picture, we can see a Nintendo 3DS along with Go Go Kokopolo. That is another physical release from the company. The final physical 3DS game that Limited Run Games will release appears to have a lot of green and blue on the cover. Some guesses in the comments include Pocket Card Jockey, SubaraCity, and Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. Limited Run Games will provide more information on the game, as well as its release window and price, later on.
Good night, Sweet Prince.
Yesterday, the 3DS and Wii U digital stores went down. Days like that remind us why we do what we do and why we'll keep on doing it.

Since 2022, Nintendo talked about closing the Wii U and 3DS eShops, and it finally happened on March 27, 2023. If you’ve purchased a game and have the license for it, you can download it once more via the eShop. However, you will no longer be able to purchase digital games through it. This includes DLC as well. If you still had money in your account, you’ll have until March 2024 to transfer that balance to your Nintendo Switch account.
Limited Run Games will release its final physical 3DS game some time in the future.
