Random: there is a version of Halo with multiplayer for Nintendo 3DS
You’ve seen Halo games on Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Maybe you’ve played one or two on PC, especially since Halo: Master Chief Collection hit the platform in 2019. However, you probably haven’t seen Halo on Nintendo 3DS, but did you know that he Is to exist?
Reddit user deliciousprisms recently took to the Halo subreddit to show off, well, a version of Halo running on a 3DS console. It looks a bit like those ‘demakes’ you see floating around (like that Ring of Elden a), where modders and developers take modern games back in time. It’s been around for a few years, known as “Halo Revamped”, and it’s also on the Sony PSP and even the SEGA Dreamcast!
This particular effort is a “Halo-style Quake mod” that features multiplayer, with the user above loading up Halo 2’s “Lockout” map for a quick hit. That said, we had to head to the comments to spot it, as it’s safe to say the visuals are a little different!
To access it on Nintendo 3DS, you’ll need to install homebrew – which basically requires modding your 3DS console. We don’t approve of that, but it’s interesting to see Halo running on Nintendo’s handheld all the same.
These sorts of portable Halo endeavors aren’t new. A quick YouTube search yields a few different results, including a strange original DS version that IGN mysteriously released footage from around 11 years ago. What could have been!
Would you play Halo on 3DS? Or would you rather have MS release their own handheld? Let us know below!
