It had a good run, but it’s finally time to call it a day for the Nintendo 3DS. According to a report on The Verge, the Japanese Nintendo website announced the discontinuation of the beloved portable, putting a cap on a nine-year run and effectively ending the line of DS handhelds that first debuted back in 2004.

Following the end of production on New Nintendo 3DS and those that came before it, the only models remaining were the large versions of New Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. Now, all 3DS products on the Japanese site are listed as discontinued. Similarly, other than the support section, all systems have been removed from Nintendo of America’s site.

While Nintendo 3DS got off to a bumpy start in 2011, once its price drop came into play along with more must-have games, it turned out to be a huge success. Between all the variants, the 3DS and 2DS family racked up sales to the tune of over 75 million.
