Next Shin-Chan Platformer Has Elephants, But No Elephant Dance


Namco Bandai is preparing another Shin-Chan platformer for the Nintendo DS. Crayon Shin-Chan: Shockgahn lets Shin-Chan dress up in six suits, including an elephant costume.


When he wears the elephant costume Shin-Chan can pull blocks towards him with his trunk. Shin-Chan can also swing from his trunk Bionic Commando style.



The Action Bastard outfit gives Shin-Chan laser beams and a Sonic the Hedgehog style spin dash attack.



Shin-Chan’s penguin costume gives him a beak attack and the ability to swim in water. Just like New Super Mario Bros., Penguin Shin-Chan can slide on his belly.

The firefly costume lights up dark passages and lets Shin-Chan fly for a short period of time.


Finally, there’s standard Shin-Chan who can distract enemies with his signature ass dance.


Crayon Shin-Chan: Shockgahn comes out on the Nintendo DS on December 2.
