Minecraft Dungeons is hitting Switch and other platforms next year. As it turns out there, the game got its start on a different Nintendo platform.

Jens Bergensten, chief creative officer at Mojang, revealed in a recent behind-the-scenes video for the game: “it all started when we were trying to figure out a cool Minecraft-style game for the Nintendo 3DS.” “We toyed with a bunch of different ideas, but finally making a dungeon crawler was something that really struck a chord with us,” he said.

Minecraft Dungeons will retain its action-adventure roots when it comes to Switch in 2020. However, it’ll be a much different – and bigger – title compared to those early 3DS days.
