  1. Updates will continue to be available for years to come. Same with online play and Redownloads. It is just new purchases that will cease to be available. That probably includes new DLC, maybe even free ones. Not 100% sure on those last two.

  2. Xenoblade X, one of the last few Wii U physical disc exclusive holdouts left (since Tokoyo Mirage Fe went the way of Switch finally too, like every dam release from Wii U the Switch "Deluxized"). But here's a full game, digital ONLY in ALL regions, console exclusive only…ONLY ON 3DS eshop, Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods. If you don't download this, besides less than ideal emulating for that, it's gone! Like Blaster Master Overdrive, Star Soldier R, Castlevania and Gradius Rebirth from Wii.

  3. Rhythm heaven megamix is great for people who love music and rhythm games. It dosent have complicated controls and mostly a & b buttons. Suggest you buy it if you love music

  4. I wouldn't worry much guys. Just get all the gen 1 & 2 pokemon games. If you really wanna play the rest, you can emulate them with citra. As for Xeno X, Don't worry. Odds are someone will make a custom server where we can download the patches just like what happened with Pokemon events on the original ds.
    What my concern is how the heck are we gonna be able to move our older gen pokemon forward without pokebank because we all know it will eventually go.

  5. I’d add the Etrian Odyssey games to anyone who likes turn based RPGs or JRPGs. They’re made by Atlus and some of the voice actors will familiar to those who’ve played any of the other SMT or Persona games. Gameplay is awesome and can be challenging too. You make your own maps on the bottom screen while dungeon crawling, which is more fun and addictive than you’d think lol.

  6. I hears to get the community back on their eShop for the final days with the 3DS they are really giving away Zelda four Swords Anniversary Edition for free download! As well as releasing Doom 1 and 2 hexen Wolfenstein 3D and Star Wars dark Forces all in 3D for downloadable purchase on the eShop! With some hinting that they might also release nightmare creatures for the 3DS in 3D as a eShop download for its final days!

  7. Download all 3DS/ Wii U games "updates". Type "update" download all the updates while you can in the search bar. Especially for games you don't own, if you buy a game later on in the future, you now have the game update loaded on your machine. ?
