During the recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, it was revealed that new and not so new titles would be coming to Nintendo 3DS. Though the focus surprisingly lay away from the upcoming release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, choosing to take a closer look at other titles such as a new currently untitled Pikmin game, as well as a couple of particular Wii U titles making their way to the handheld console.
They aren’t direct ports, however. The first being Yoshi’s Woolly World, which has been renamed Poochy & Yoshi’s World to coincide with Yoshi’s canine pal and the unique levels that come with, and is set for release alongside a new Amiibo on February 2nd. Arguably the biggest port announcement lies with Super Mario Maker making its way to the 3DS. Though the port does have a significant feature missing; you won’t be able to upload your courses online. This makes it only a partial port from the Wii U version, as the game will launch with 100 levels that are not all replicable from the Wii U to the 3DS version.
The game is perfectly suited to the 3DS device, however. Mirroring the gameplay from the Wii U, the top screen being your play area and the touch screen acting as the level designing canvas. All is not lost with the inability to upload courses online either, as players will be able to use Streetpass to share levels with friends and strangers alike.
Super Mario Maker will launch on Nintendo 3DS on December 2nd.
