As previously reported, Nano Assault, Shin’en’s Mario Galaxy-style shoot-em-up for the Nintendo 3DS, is getting a Nintendo eShop release, titled Nano Assault EX.


The EX version of the game will have new features, and Shin’en mention on its website that these include a new survivor mode, online rankings, updated graphics and support for the Circle Pad Pro add-on. They’ve also shared a new trailer which you can watch above.


Nano Assault EX doesn’t have a release date yet, but is headed to both the U.S. and Europe. Additionally, Shin’en are also developing Nano Assault Neo for the Wii U eShop.

    So glad I didn’t buy this game when it first came out now I can get the better version.

    I’m just happy to finally play the game in Europe. 

  • This must look so badass in 3D!

  • XypherCode

    Talk about upgrading some already impressive visuals :)) Can’t wait!

  • What Shinen has done here is commendable, they released a game at retail then realized it was better suited as a digital release so they went back changed some things and are now releasing it for the eShop. I think some other 3DS games that could follow this example are.
    Cave Story 3D (yes I know they just released a version on the eShop)
    Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove 3D
    Crush 3D
    Shifting World

    Awesome! I guess I’m finally getting it.

    I wonder if they have plans on “updating” the original release to EX through DLC/patching. We’ve yet to see the DLC do something more than just patch minor stuff and add songs. I wanna see something drastic. I wanna believe the 3DS can do full-on patching.

    This looks great for a 3DS game. Some of those textures are pretty nice :P
