Unity Technologies has announced today that there will be Unity support for the new 3DS, according to event attendee Mark MacDonald, 8-4 Ltd executive director. The announcement came during the Unite 2015 Tokyo event in Japan.
Sadly, there are very few details about the support at this time. Executive of Nintendo of America, Damon Baker, had previously mentioned that Nintendo were looking at adding Unity support to the 3DS.
Unity Technologies entered a partnership with Nintendo for Wii U development in late 2012. This allowed millions of registered developers to bring their existing titles to the platform. Nintendo provided Unity Pro tools to digital developers for free as part of its Wii U developers program. To date, over 50 games on Wii U use Unity. Nintendo of America president Damon Baker mentioned in March of last year that Nintendo was actively looking at bringing Unity support to its handheld.
This news comes only a month after Unity developer announced that the latest version of its game engine, Unity 5, is now available for developers worldwide.
