Rabbids Travel in Time 3D (known as Rabbids 3D in Europe, and Rabbids: Time Travel in Japan) is a game in the Raving Rabbids series for the Nintendo 3DS. It was released on the 1st April 2011, a week after the 3DS lauched in Europe, while it was released in North America on the 10th April 2011; several months after the release of its Wii counterpart, Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. Unlike said version, this game is a 2.5D side-scrolling platform game rather than a minigame compilation, and is the first in the entire Raving Rabbids series that is such. It is playable in the 3DS's 3D mode as well as 2D mode.
The game follows a similar plot to that of its Wii counterpart, except that a Rabbid emerges from the Time Washing Machine into the Museum, with a rubber duck ring on its body. The other Rabbids surrounding it become distracted from messing about, and start to fight over the inflatable, causing one of them (not the one originally wearing it) to be flung into the Time Washing Machine along with it. It is then their mission to find the lost Rabbid and recover the rubber duck ring by travelling through several time zones in history with the Time Washing Machine.
The player controls a single Rabbid, even unlike the Wii version of Rabbids Go Home in which the player controlled two Rabbids riding a shopping trolley. This lone Rabbid is teleported into each level with the Time Washing Machine, and has to find another one at the end of the level, while collecting coins and rubber ducks.
At the top screen, the Rabbid's health is represented by at least four toilet paper rolls (these are increased as the Rabbid finds golden toilet paper rolls, found in presents), and also unlike Rabbids Go Home, the player has limited lives which are represented by an icon of the Rabbid's face. The bottom screen shows a crudely drawn map of the entire current level, showing the Rabbid's current position, some checkpoints, and the Time Washing Machine at the end. This also shows an icon representing a certain objective the Rabbid has to accomplish, such as eliminating a certain number of enemy Rabbids.
Along the way, the Rabbid encounters enemy Rabbids, which often carry a piece of costume that the player can customise the Rabbid with. There are also several other obstacles that cause damage and instant death upon contact.
