Minecraft: New 3DS Edition was updated earlier in the week. Currently, the game sits at version 1.3.12.

We have a few more details about Minecraft: New 3DS Edition from a developer live stream hosted after this week’s Nintendo Direct. The information comes max world size and more.

Here’s the roundup of information for Minecraft: New 3DS Edition:

– Max world size is 2016×2016 (small worlds on Switch are 900x900ish and largest are about 3000×3000)
– Based on Pocket Edition 0.15.4, which launched July 2016, has every feature the game did as of that release
– Due to above, no The End yet, but does have the Nether
– Redstone contraptions work as expected, they had memory-eating bugs with them at one point but got them all squashed
– They plan on lots of updates over the course of the next 6-8 months, for example targeting 0.16 and adding ocean monuments and associated blocks
– No cross play or world sharing, this is a totally new and different build of the game unique to 3DS
– Mouselook with c-stick including invert Y-axis if you want, other options like view bobbing off, auto-jump
– Map is always active on the bottom screen
– Comes with standard textures, plastic, and city, plus many character skins


Minecraft: New 3DS Edition debuted this week. We’ve heard that local multiplayer will be added with a new update, but that isn’t the only feature on the way.

As mentioned by Mike Mika on Twitter, stereoscopic 3D is in the pipeline. Additionally, it’s not too far off. Mika says that it’s already functional and will be added in an update “super soon.”
