Last year saw the news that the incredibly popular Unity development platform was going to become compatible with the New 3DS, and now, after months of tinkering, the tools are available to developers across the globe.

In a recent blog post detailing the announcement, the company makes it clear that while the original 3DS is technically supported, the New 3DS is the recommended platform for developers. They also confirm that they’ve been working with multiple Unity developers to port existing Unity games to the system. A recent example of this is Wind-Up Knight 2, which was released in Japan last year and you can check out how it looks below:

If you’re curious what other games may be in the pipeline be sure to check out the Unity Showcase, which features everything from small indie titles, like Superhot and I am Bread, to bigger games such as Cities Skylines, Grow Home and Mobius Final Fantasy.

In any case, we could be seeing a lot more New 3DS exclusives in the future. Be sure to stay tuned for any future announcements!
