Despite being considered a console release, the 3DS version contains mobile-exclusive items such as the Heart Arrow. The Hero's clothes and Plumber's clothes are their correct Nintendo colors. The 3DS version also contains the Zapinator, an item which was originally released on the Desktop version, but was removed in a subsequent update. It resembles the Zapper gun from the NES.
The 3DS version is unlike the other console versions, not only because of some differences listed above, but also because it follows its own update line. A list of all the updates it has had, as well as a few highlights of each one, can be found at 3DS Version history.
The 3DS version can be played on the New 3DS family of systems at a higher frame rate and it adds an expanded world option.
