Unity: No current plans to support 3DS

Ultra-portable engine tech Unity is head over heels in love with the Wii U, but not so much its portable cousin.

Speaking to NintendoLife, Unity Technologies developer relations officer Tracy Erickson said the company is concentrating on the Wii U for now.

“Regarding Nintendo 3DS, that’s kinda like asking about Pikmin 4 when Pikmin 3 hasn’t even come out yet. The relationship between Nintendo and Unity has reached an exciting new level and we’re focused on Wii U,” she said.

“Timing is important here since the console launches in this year, too. While there are no current plans to support Nintendo 3DS, we’re always looking at what platforms make sense for us to support, where developer demand is, and the opportunities available for our developer community.”

Unity and Nintendo fell in mutual admiration recently, and have cemented their rad broship with an agreement through which Unity will be included for free with Wii U development kits.
