When asked if game engine maker Unity might support Nintendo's new 3DS handheld, CEO David Helgason and product evangelist Tom Higgins expressed interest during an extensive Gamasutra interview

Said Helgason, "We've given a good amount of thought to it. We cannot say anything about it; we cannot promise anything, but we are excited about it for sure."

He described the 3DS to Gamasutra as "a very compelling platform in many ways."

The company recently released Unity 3, the latest version of its engine technology, which contains many upgrades.

Higgins, while calling the platform "particularly interesting" notes that "anything that seems like a viable platform" is discussed internally at Unity in terms of potential support.

While Unity did not support the original Nintendo DS, the company does support the Wii -- and is in the process of expanding the engine to support the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in addition to current support for PC, Mac, and web. Its latest addition is Android support.

You can read the full interview, which goes into great depth about Unity 3, the latest release of the engine, now at Gamasutra.
