Damon Baker, the Senior Manager of Marketing at Nintendo’s of America’s Licensing department, has told Siliconera at this year’s GDC event that they are looking at bringing the Unity game engine to the Nintendo 3DS. The Unity engine has made it easier for independent developers to bring their titles to Wii U, so Baker was asked whether the engine will come to the Nintendo 3DS.
“We’ve had those discussions and we are definitely looking at that,” Baker replied.
“Our priority was to get the Wii U build [of Unity] up and done and ready. Because we need a test environment for it, it’s taken a while for Unity to get finalized on Wii U, so that we can actually test against it. So that has been made available now and that is why we’ve got all of these [game] candidates waiting in the wings that are just going through the submission process at this point.”
“Now, we can move on to other platforms and see how we can make those compatible,” he continued, “either with Unity or with additional middleware providers as well.”
“So, 3DS is definitely an exciting platform for us, because we’ve got a huge install base, and we want to take advantage of that. We’ve got a lot of developers that want to take advantage of it. So, we’re working towards that as well. But nothing to announce at this time.”

Genius Sonority has confirmed via a press release that Denpa Men 3 is coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop this summer. A demo for the game will be arriving in May on the eShop and the Denpa Men 2 is currently on sale.
The Denpa Men 3 is the third game in the expansive RPG series where players catch and form parties with Denpa Men to conquer dungeons and explore a vast world. In the third iteration, the Denpa Men you are trying to capture can now fight back by throwing colored balls at you, but players have new weapons at their disposal such as an antenna to capture Denpa Men.
The Denpa Men are mysterious creatures who appear around radio waves. Find Wi-Fi signals or scan QR codes to find Denpa Men, and use the AR “Catch” feature of the Nintendo 3DS to make them part of your team. Each Denpa Man is unique in its appearance, stats, and abilities. The possibilities of their variations are limitless. It is also said that among them exists a very rare kind of Denpa Man.
■Continuing the adventure – THE ‘DENPA’ MEN 3: The Rise of Digitoll can inherit data from the previous two games THE ‘DENPA’ MEN: They Came By Wave and THE ‘DENPA’ MEN 2: Beyond the Waves, allowing players to start a new adventure with characters they’ve captured previously.
■Personalize to your hearts content – Once the Denpa Men join your party, they come with their own highly customizable houses, where the interiors can be decorated to their liking. Decorative items can be exchanged with other players.
■Share your Denpa Men- Deploy the Denpa Men not currently in your party to other players around the world. Or, if you need a little help on your adventure, borrow a Denpa Man from someone else. If your Denpa Man is high in demand, you might just earn a little cash on the side.
■Go shopping – Connect your 3DS to the internet and shop with players from around the world. You might be able to trade better items for better prices than the in-game shop.
■Battle over the Network – Enter the coliseum to pit your Denpa Men against other players around the globe.
■Make some memories – While on your quest, hold down the L / R buttons (simultaneously) anytime to snap a shot of your characters. These are stored on the SD card, so they can be transferred and shared anytime!
