Renegade Kid working on new 3DS FPS for eShop

Renegade Kid may be strutting their stuff with platformers lately, but long-time fans know that the company really has an affinity for first-person shooters. Between Dementium and Moon, Renegade Kid created some of the most impressive FPS games to hit the DS. Now it's been confirmed that they'll be working their FPS magic in a FPS for the 3DS eShop, due out holiday 2013. Thanks to all that sent this in!

Well if they actually do something original unlike most shooters then ok.

I'll get it, at least to support RK. They have made good fps before

Speaking of FPS on the 3DS...

What ever happened to Conduit being developed for the 3DS? :S

RK is owning the E-shop. Can't wait for ATV, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, and especially MM2! Bring this game on!

There is nothing about being an eShop release that means it should be limited graphically (from all we've heard), but because it's an eShop title from Renegade Kid, this alters my expectations of what they are aiming for in terms of tech, scope, and budget. I say, if it's Dementium, don't expect something as impressive as Resident Evil Revelations, for example.

I only say this because Renegade Kid made lovely DS engines, engines that make full use of the hardware, and I think other people may expect them to push the 3DS in the same way. But looking at their 3DS eShop work, Mutant Mudds, Bomb Monkey, Planet Crashers, and ATV Wild Ride, I think they're not aiming as high from a technical standpoint and as a nice trade-off they seem to be making tighter gameplay experiences.

Most of them a probably ports of DS games, Look at the short release frame. E-shop games dont have to be limited, they have no size limitations, also nothing is stopping them to release it as a retail game on e-shop (meaning youll be paying the same price like for it like for Mario.)

I'm excited what they can do with the 3DS hardware when building a FPS, they did some excellent stuff with the very limited DS hardware.

I heard it'll be a new IP though, not a follow-up to Dementium or Moon. Although this IP might be from the same universe as the other two.

Good to hear. One of my complaints with RE: Revelations is the lack of touch screen aiming.
