Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is a Nintendo 3DS port of the 2015 Wii U title Super Mario Maker, scheduled for a release on December 2, 2016. Despite being a Nintendo 3DS title, the game does not support stereoscopic 3D, and gameplay is therefore strictly available in 2D. This applies to all consoles in the Nintendo 3DS family.
The game is slated to include almost everything from the original Wii U release, with the exception of Costume Mario and searching for courses by code. It is also possible to play stages from the Wii U version, though not every stage will be compatible with the 3DS version due to version differences, such as the lack of Mystery Mushrooms in the 3DS version.
Exclusive to Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, the game will include 100 new courses designed by Nintendo pre-installed. The courses will also include medal objectives, in which the player must fulfill certain criteria, such as collecting every coin in the level, to earn a medal. Players can also send unfinished courses to other players, by way of Local Play, and they can team up, or collaborate, on stages. Stages made in this way will have a special icon marked next to it.
