Alas, thy Nintendo 3DS will no longer be thy Netflix main driver


No! No no no no! No no, noooooo. NO. NO NO. NOOOOOO. I, simply, CANNOT. Comrades, I hate to have to tell you this, but you’ll no longer be able to watch Netflix on your Nintendo 3DS from June 30.

Give me a moment, I have to compose myself. Phew, that’s a bit better, thanks.

Yes, come Summer, Netflix will no longer work on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. That means those long lockdown evenings of watching Adam Sandler on your tiny 3DS display will come to an end. No, I’m not ready either, but all good things must end. We shall get through this together.

According to Nintendo (I SHALL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR ALLOWING THIS), the Netflix software for the 3DS and Wii U was removed from the company’s app store on December 31.

If you’re lucky (nay, blessed) enough to still have it on your Nintendo 3DS, cherish it. Hold it tight each night. Whisper sweet nothings to it — for you only have a few months to watch Tiger King again on that shitty, shitty screen.
