Minecraft on new 3DS!
Downloadable from Nintendo eShop now!
Just a few months after we brought Minecraft to Nintendo Switch, we're double-dipping with the big N to bring the game to the New Nintendo 3DS series. Whatever next, an N64 port? Get on it, Jens!
We want to stress that the game is only on the New Nintendo 3DS series, and we've used all the technical might of the dual-screened wonder machine to give you world sizes of 2016x2016 and 128 blocks high! Multiplayer won't be available at launch but we'll have more to share on the feature later. This edition's closest equivalent is 0.15.4 of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and we'll be continuing to update from there!
That dual screen setup helps make crafting easier than ever, with quicker access to your inventory and a handy map on the touch screen, perfect for charting out your worlds. Take a scroll through some screenshots below:
We've also bundled five skin packs and two texture packs with this version of the game. Which ones, you ask? Well why not head over to the Nintendo 3DS eShop and find out? It's available right now in America and Japan (there is currently no agreed timeframe for Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition to launch in Europe). Happy crafting!
