The 3DS eShop has been dominated by third-party titles in recent times but last week’s Nintendo Direct presentation featured an announcement of a brand new entry in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong puzzle-platform series for the digital platform.
Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move (US title) is the fifth game in this series which first appeared on the Game Boy Advance in 2004. The game is currently scheduled for release during the second quarter of 2013 and will feature 180 levels split across four different game modes as well as a puzzle editor.
This 3DS eShop title sees Donkey Kong teaming up with Pauline to run a game arcade which features five toys to control, including mini versions of Mario, Peach, the Toads, Donkey Kong and Pauline.
Here’s the game’s debut trailer:
