This is fantastic news and will bring hundreds if not thousands of games to New 3DS eshop. Unity engine support gives indie developers great access to make games easily for New 3DS. The PS4 and Wii U have recently been getting lots of great indie support because they support various graphics engines they support. The future of the New 3DS is significantly brighter now because of this announcement and I expect so many more unique and fun western style games to release using the more advanced features of the New 3DS!
