Can you play Nintendo 3DS games on the Switch?

Before buying a new console like the Switch, the question is whether you can use older games on it. We'll show you here whether you can play your Nintendo 3DS games on the Switch and which other consoles are compatible with the 3DS games.

Nintendo: All the information about the possibility of playing 3DS games on the Switch

If you still have old games for your 3DS console and want to play them on the new Nintendo Switch, this is not possible. Unlike the 3DS, which is a successor to the older Nintendo DS and Nintendo 2DS models, the Switch is a completely newly developed console that is not backwards compatible. Therefore, neither Nintendo 3DS games nor other accessories are compatible with the ninth Switch console.
