    a port of the engine or the source of the game would have to exist otherwise porting would be immensely difficult to the the point where the effort would be not worth it.

    If you are an Nintendo developer you can use unity for developing 3ds games.

    This is gonna be wild speculation, but maybe when Wind-up Knight 2 releases for the 3DS (one of the first Unity games for the 3DS by the way) perhaps there's a chance that we could unpack the game's files, find some scripts/models, change the look and the mechanics of the game by editing those said scripts/models, and then repack it afterwards?

    90% I think that probably wouldn't be possible. :sad:

    If only Nintendo did something like ps mobile, before that got canned too. Allowing indies to publish games without developer licenses was awesome for that short amount of time, if Nintendo ever did something like that, what you're asking would be a lot easier.

    PSM got nuked because of the Rejuvenate hack (Allowing for native Vita usermode homebrew), and Nintendo would just be creating a whole lot more trouble for themselves, which will only add a lot more to what has already been achieved in the 3DS hacking scene...
    The closure of PSM hit Sony and existing PSM users quite hard if I'm honest, with users now not being able to redownload their paid PSM apps due to non-existant PSM servers now.
    And if Nintendo create something similar to PSM, and new security holes get found in the software which lead to new exploits, just like PSM, practically the same thing will happen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I meant for what he is asking, to transfer unity games to 3ds. I know allowing indie development like that would lead to a load of trouble for 3ds, but in all honesty, I think it's already in trouble with homebrew. The slew of cfw for it already is the proof.

    Sony already decided to kill PSM before rejuvenate was publicly available, @yifan_lu only released it to the public (the first PoC appeared as early as fall 2012) as DevAssistant was going to be revoked anyway.
