According to a Tweet from Jools Watsham of developer Renegade Kid, there will be a new FPS game coming to the 3DS, possibly by the end of this year.

Polygon.com said:
The game, which is a new intellectual property, was revealed in the first issue of Nintendo Force. According to Watsham, the title could be the first FPS for the Nintendo 3DS. Few other details were revealed, though the game is expected to release sometime in the 2013 holiday season.

There was also news that the game will be playable at PAX East, which takes place this March.

For fans of the DS's Dementium and MOON games, this is great news. What about you? Excited? Not interested? Sound off below!

Okay, so wait... I'm a little confused, "announced", Cult County was already announced!

If they announce a Moon game great, do want. But they better at least give us a status report on Cult County. Even if that status is: cancelled.

Agreed. But I don't think Cult County is canned. They just started working on it a short while ago, right? Like, last summer or something? Gotta give a game like that some time to cook!

@deathly_hallows I'm thinking Cult County is more like a Condemned type melee-focused + shooting game whereas this upcoming announcement is more of a traditional FPS.

@Zero
If Cult County follows the Dementium template it will have a mix of melee and shooting, but with limited ammo ala a survival horror game.

Assuming this new Moon game is similar to the last then it's indeed much more of a standard snooty-shoot-shoot shooter.

So, do we know when today IGN's gonna reveal this new game for us?

EDIT: Apparently the show starts at 10 a.m. PST. If it's a show. If it's not, something else starts at 10 a.m. PST. Either way, that's when.

It's sad that this will be the first actual FPS on the 3DS - esp.since the DS had a ton of them.

Yeah. But at least the ball might start rolling now. The big publishers will probably still not give a shit even if this game should happen to be awesome and successful, but maybe other indie devs will start seeing the platform as a potential home for their FPS efforts if everything goes well.

But yeah, I should probably wait for Renegade Kid to show this game off first, shouldn't I.

Agreed, I was hoping for at least a port of GoldenEye or The Conduit 2. The 3D effect would be sweet for an FPS, and with the CPP as an option devs could have standard controls in addition to touch-screen aiming which always caused cramps on the DS.

As suspected, it's Moon Chronicles.

IGN said:
The story follows a character named Major Kane, as he embarks on a mysterious mission to investigate a hatch of unknown origin on Earth’s moon. Moon Chronicles will follow an episodic model. Season one is a remake of the original DS game and will follow the pricing structure listed below.

Episode 1: $8.99 (contains chapters 1 - 4 + 6 VR Missions: ~4 hours of gameplay).
Episode 2 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 5 - 8: ~2 hours of gameplay).
Episode 3 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 9 - 12: ~2 hours of gameplay).
Episode 4 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 13 - 16: ~2 hours of gameplay).

Renegade Kid hopes to deliver a second season next year that will feature brand new content that takes place after the original game.
(...)
Moon will be rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of 3DS's 3D screen, while running at 60 frames-per-second (with or without 3D switched on). Renegade Kid also re-touched its detailed geometry and graphics, as well as introduce Circle Pad Pro support for the re-release.

Wait, it's the same game? The one I've played to completion about 6 times already?

Yeah, "hopes", "next year", ie 2015, which could end up being almost 2 years if we're talking Fall 2015.

So, wait a year or two for a new game, but no guarantee, that's our big announcement.

Hmm... but who knows if it will happen, they're probably basing their hopes of a second season on the sales of the first, and considering the original game never sold well, tough to see how the remake will.

Weird.

And bingo is his name O!

(I'm still going to buy it for sure because I'm a ridiculous superfan, but I can't imagine many people double-dipping, hope there are new customers!)

Well, this time around the cost of distribution will be lower since it's all digital, it will be more easily available (having a relatively low price tag), all of the profits will go straight into Renegade Kid's pockets, and producing the game won't be all that costly since the bulk of the work was done for the original release. Maybe this won't have to sell all that much to work out for Jools and the bunch.

All that being said, I don't think I'll get this remake. The 3D visuals look neat, but graphics aren't enough for me to double dip. I would be interested in the sequel though.

If you don't buy this game a second time you're part of the problem!!!

I'm joking, don't blame you, the 3-D will be neat though me thinks.

Never played the original, so I may buy it. I was always curious about it...

@deathly_hallows
Well, it's kind of true though.

@ludist210
The original is really good, so I can't see how you'd go wrong with this. There's this, almost Metroid-y quality to it, with the remote controlled droid you can zoom around with, exploring narrow passages and ducts. The shooting's satisfying too.

Actually, I think I'm gonna have to boot up the ol' DS game to refresh my memory a little bit.

EDIT: Played a bit of the game in quick play mode. Yeah, it's pretty sweet. Bosses were better designs (gameplay wise) than I remembered.
