Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay mostly remains the same as the console version. The top screen displays the battle, while the bottom screen displays the map and character stats. By tapping the character icons on the bottom screen during battle, players can switch to playing as that character. Two new pickup items have been confirmed for this game: A golden Ocarina that warps players to Owl Statues, and a Hammer weapon. In order for the game to display as many enemies as possible, the stereoscopic 3D feature for standard Nintendo 3DS systems will be disabled; only New Nintendo 3DS systems will have the 3D feature[1].

New content in this version includes additional playable characters, as well as a new set of story missions. All of the new content except for the story missions can be transferred original version of the game via a serial code printed on the back of the box[1]. The game will also feature all of the downloadable content included on the Wii U version, though this cannot be transferred. The Challenge Mode in the Wii U version, however, in addition to multiplayer support will not be in this game. amiibo will also be compatible with this game; in addition to the amiibo usable on the Wii U version, scanning the Wolf Link amiibo unlocks special weapons for Midna.
