Super Mario Maker is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo announced the port a bit ago, but it’s been a little confusing ever since. Consumers aren’t quite sure how the game works, what they can share and if they can access the Wii U’s library.

This new video from Nintendo goes over Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS‘ features with nearly five minutes of footage.

You can make your own levels, of course. They can be shared with friends locally through wireless, but they can’t be shared online. In fact, you won’t find any 3DS-made levels online. What is online, however, is the full Wii U-made level catalog.

Nintendo’s also including 100 of their own pre-made levels.

Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS launches to a much larger install base

The general consensus for Super Mario Maker is that the Wii U version will certainly be the better of the two. However, the Wii U version lacks what the 3DS version will have. That’s a much, much larger install base.

At the most recent count, there 13.35 million Wii Us in consumer possession. Compare that to the 61.57 million Nintendo 3DS systems out there. Super Mario Maker is set to launch to a much, much bigger audience on December 2, 2016.
