Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move (JP) is a game for Nintendo 3DS released on the Nintendo eShop in May 2013. It is the fourth entry in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series and the first on the 3DS.


The gameplay has changed a decent bit. It plays generally similar to all previous games in the series since Mario vs. DK 2: March of the Minis but, now plays in a 3D space instead of 2D. It now plays a bit more like a pipe game having the Minis following a set path instead of pseudo-platforming. All the series staple parts return but the parts are mainly blocks which the player races to place before the Minis walk off the path. The goal is to get the highest score, through collecting all coins, destroying all the enemies and getting all the Minis to the end of the level. Sharing of custom levels has returned from Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again and Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!.
