Given the number of delightful oddities that came out of Japan when the DS first launched, it's been rather sad to see such a conservative first wave of 3DS software. With that in mind, not to mention the relative paucity of announcements at E3 a few months back, this year's Tokyo Games Show was an important week for the handheld. Would developers finally step up with some serious support for the system, or would the industry place all its chips on Vita?
A sequel to cult DS favourite Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime is coming to 3DS, publisher Square Enix has announced.
A new teaser site for Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3: Daikaizoku to Shippodan – to give it its full Japanese title - offers very little information, other than confirming 3D support, a multiplayer mode for two to four players and compatibility with Wi-Fi and Street Pass.
Andriasang adds a little more colour, reporting that the latest issue of Japanese magazine Jump pegs a nautical theme for the game. Apparently Slimes will be setting sail in ships and engaging in 3D battles with enemy pirates.
