The systems themselves may stop production, but as long as Nintendo actively sells the games you won’t easily find ROMs for them. This is similar to the PS3, which was) discontinued in 2017. Sony still sells games for it though, through the online services and some retail stores. It will probably be a number of years before 3DS games are actively archived and stored on ROM sites. Nintendo has been cracking down lately on ROM sites, even for old games. It’s harder to defend the ROMs as being archived and preserved when they are still being sold in stores and on digital storefronts.
