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.
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!
@Guillaume I love eShop games but I also feel a bit sad in some cases when something that was previously at retail becomes eShop only. There are some meaty eShop games but you kind of know that they won't be quite as meaty as they would have been at retail.
Sort of. Although plenty of retail products are tiny.
You know what I'm saying though. If they decide in advance they are selling it for $10 or whatever, the budget will be smaller from the start, which means the game will probably be smaller as well.
Remember that what a budget can do isn't a static thing over time though. A small budget in 2013 can outdo a large budget from the SNES era. I've been playing some downloadable indie games lately that are definitely more meaty than lots of SNES games.
But I'm a bit confused here, didn't they already announce Cult County? Is this something else? If so, why do they keep saying "our FPS for 3DS" and not "one of our FPS for 3DS"? Or... is Cult County not an FPS? I thought it was for some reason, but now I'm looking at it and it looks more like Condemned or that line of game... first person, with some shooting, but not strictly an FPS?
@Zero This is confusing me too. I'm pretty sure we'll have to consider Cult County announced since it has an official website, and screenshots and what have you. But if so, as you say, why don't they talk about two games at this point? Even if one is meant to be more of a survival horror or adventure game in first person, wouldn't it be a good idea for them to differentiate the two games a bit when talking about them?
Whatever happens this friday, I'm sure it'll be something sweet. I just hope Cult County is still coming, 'cause I thought it seemed interesting. Also because I like the spooky stuff.
