Recently, Unite 2015 is currently being held in Tokyo and some really interesting news is coming out already.

The most important one so far, however, has been the announcement of Unity engine’s support for the New Nintendo 3DS – the normal version as well as the XL version. The announcement was made by the developers in the keynotes of the event.

The official website of Unity Technologies, the developers of Unity game engine, later shared more details on their plans and the support:

The new Unity platform support allows Nintendo’s in-house developers and 3rd party developers to use Unity’s powerful engine and development environment to create games and apps for the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL.

However, allowing developers on Nintendo’s platforms to use the new engine is not the only thing this is going to offer. On the other hand, the thousands of developers who have been developing their games on Unity (for other platforms) also get the chance to bring them to the handheld:

It also opens the door for tens of thousands of studios and over 4 million developers using the Unity development platform to bring exciting new mobile and social games, introduce their amazing existing games to a new audience, and create new games using innovative functions of the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems.

Having been previously available on Wii U, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and mobile platforms, Unity is certainly going to bring new opportunities for game development for the handheld.
