Nintendo's level design game  Super Mario Maker  is coming to 3DS

Nintendo's level design game Super Mario Maker is coming to 3DS

September 1, 2016 | By Alex Wawro

Almost a year after Nintendo released Super Mario Maker on Wii U, the company has laid plans to release a version of the game for its 3DS handheld console on December 2nd.

Last year we celebrated Super Mario Maker for effectively placing the essential tools of Mario level design into the hands of players, and it's good to see that Nintendo will now make those tools available to a wider audience.

However, it seems there will be some slight differences between versions; as Kotaku points out, Nintendo claims that not all levels created using the Wii U version of Mario Maker will be compatible with the 3DS version. 

Players on the latter platform also won't be able to search for levels by their course ID -- which will probably make it tricky for them to find specific levels highlighted by sources outside the game, like our early list of great Mario Maker levels created by game developers.

On the other hand, the 3DS version is also expected to allow players to share levels with one another locally (via StreetPass or local Wi-Fi), including unfinished levels -- something that's not (yet) possible in the Wii U version.
