Mario Vs Donkey Kong coming to the 3DS eShop this year

Expect the new game during the second quarter of 2013

Mario Vs Donkey Kong will be making its debut for 3DS this year, with a release date set for Q2.

Mario Vs Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move (US title) is the first game in the puzzle series to be released for 3DS and like Mario Vs Donkey Kong: Minis March Again for DSi, will be a downlodable title. This one will only be available through the 3DS eShop.

Like Minis March again, it will boast a level editor but those who don't fancy creating their own levels should know that there are 180 levels split across four different game modes.

Here is the first Mario Vs Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move trailer:

    New style of gameplay and 180 stages? This is going to be a great title for the eShop!
    I loved Mini-Land Mayhem on DS so I'm very pleased to see a new title in the series.

    I enjoyed the other Mario vs. Donkey Kong games and this one seems very different from the other ones. Have to wait and see but the different styles of gameplay seem like a good idea.

    Didn't like Mini's March Again so won't be buying this. It was a very dull game, don't know what people see in it.

    Looks great!

    Didn't like the direction the Mario vs Donkey Kong series went in when it became Krusty's Super Fun House instead of Mario vs Donkey Kong, but this looks totally different.

    Mini Land Mayhem was brilliant,and this is looking just as good.
