    A 2D platformer, through and through

    One of the surprise announcements from the last 3DS Direct was that Super Mario Maker would be coming to 3DS. It makes sense given the device's renewed importance to the company, and the game could easily take advantage of 3DS features like Streetpass and Download Play. Unfortunately, it seems the game won't have...
