    Any idea, even approximate, how long Unity will still support the 3DS?

    Nintendo seems to be loosing interest pretty fast in the 3DS, so it would be good to know if support is going to be dropped like in the next 12 months or so, to avoid potentially investing months in a port for nothing.

    Unity dropping support for something doesn't delete existing versions of Unity with that support from your HDD. So I'm not understanding why this would be a big issue.

    Not everything is backwards compatible once moving forward to take advantage of new Unity tools.
    For ex. I cannot open recent projects in versions of Unity that still support PS Vita builds, without immediately crashing the whole project, which led me to think about future 3DS support.

    Which is why this could potentially be an issue. You're welcome.
