Great, another army of Steves.

New 3DS owners can start creating worlds in Minecraft today.

The international phenomenon was announced to be coming to New 3DS today. This new port of the game will come with five exclusive skins, and has been confirmed to be developed by Other Ocean with the aid of some development staff from the 3DS version of the Mega Man Legacy Collection.

This is very surprising news. I have no interest in playing Minecraft, but it is very good that it is on 3DS now.

Wow! They really are porting this to every system they can! The mention of a retail release for the New 3DS version makes me wonder when they will do the same for the Switch version. Seems like a huge, missed opportunity not to have the Switch version in stores for the holiday season.

I wonder how poorly this will run and how small the worlds will be... The field of view certainly looks tiny.

I would think they're waiting for the Better Together version of Minecraft to release before making a physical release for Switch, since there isn't much point releasing a version that is soon going to get replaced.
