Mario minis mosey in May

It appears that Mario and Donkey Kong are eschewing their adversarial past with the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, as the new Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move implies. We first heard about this new title earlier this year, but at Nintendo Direct today, we secured some more details on it, including its release date.

Minis on the Move will be a downloadable game with over 180 different stages, and additionally allows players to create custom stages for others to enjoy. Standard gameplay involves moving tiles on the bottom screen to allow the Mario minis on the top screen to collect coins and reach the exit. You can expect to find the new Mario and Donkey Kong on the 3DS eShop on May 9th.
