Super Mario Maker is releasing on 3DS on December 2.

Identical to its console counterpart, the game allows players to create their own unique Super Mario levels. We may also see Super Mario Maker 3DS bundles soon, so keep an eye on Amazon and other retailers.

Nintendo is still supporting 3DS and rumor has it that it will keep up the support until 2018. For the time being, it is unclear what will happen to once support ends. We are assuming that Nintendo will push its hybrid console/handheld, Nintendo NX, once 3DS has seen its time in the wild.

We are hearing that Nintendo NX is going to be revealed on September 21 via an exclusive Nintendo event. The company is yet to confirm such an event.

According to a recent report, Nintendo NX features four ARM-based Cortex-A57 cores and two homegrown Denver2 cores, it will use Pascal architecture for its GPU. The same one used for Nvidia’s flagship GPU models – GTX Titan X, GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060.

It is a handheld that is powerful enough to act as a console when connected with an HDTV. It may very well replace 3DS.
