Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is a notable release for the portable this Holiday season, as Nintendo aims to target a sizeable audience that likely doesn't own a Wii U. It's lacking some features seen in the home console iteration, notably online level sharing, but does have a few of its own unique selling points.
An extended showcase video has been posted by Nintendo's Japanese YouTube channel to make that very point. It mostly shows long-established content and features, but does give a nice opportunity to see how the different templates look on the system. It doesn't show off any amiibo functionality though, a reference to which was spotted on an official website recently but has now been removed.
You can check it out below. We can see a bit of troublesome slowdown on occasions when the screen is particularly busy, perhaps moreso than in equivalent scenarios on Wii U. Considering the gulf between the systems, however, that's hardly surprising.
Are you interested in picking up Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, or perhaps you're sticking with the Wii U version? Let us know in the comments.
Looks fine to me. Want.
This looks amazing
They're not even bothering to hide the slowdown? They really are phoning it in with this one.
Taking the 100 Mario Challenge to the extreme I see.
I like it.
I might get this eventually for the 3ds. I have it already for the wii u but my son loves it so might help me on long journeys.
I own the WiiU version but also have it on preorder.
I'm looking forward to it
Can't wait to create stages without having to worry if I'm at home or not.
Battery life on the other hand...
Is there a Confusing Mushroom in Mario Maker 3DS ? Very funny to see and hear the distortion of the image and music. XD
This actually made me want it again.... so I'm going to preorder .... again....
Obvi not as good as the WiiU version but, it looks good for 3DS. Better online would've made a more rounded game.
What's the point really though in creating levels in this? You can make levels... to play yourself. Boy, that's exciting. <_<
Does this game take advantage of the "New 3DS" hardware in any way?
It will be easier to just wait for the Switch version...
I'd be more interested in a budget priced version that only let you play levels (no creation). Super Mario Player...
Lag confirmed, new feature for the Limited Edition.
It looks oddly charming on the 3ds, I'll give it that. But if I can't transfer between the Wii U and the 3ds that's a no go...I've spent too much time making courses on the Wii U version.
I am curious though; there was a screen in a trailer that said Wii U something something in Japanese, so we'll see.
Probably getting this. The medal challenges look really appealing.
And it's portable SMM!
Also, the slowdown only seems to show up on completely ridiculous cases of too-much-stuff-on-the-screen, and even then it's only for the NSMBU style.
