A portion of a C3 interview with Shin'en's Manfred Linzner...
C3: Cubed3 obviously counts as a big fan of your games and is eagerly awaiting Nano Assault EX on the 3DS eShop! When can we expect it to be released? Can you also confirm if and how it is different from Nano Assault Neo on Wii U? Is it going to support the Circle Pad Pro, in order to offer a control setup similar to Neo, for those who own a CPP?
Manfred Linzner: Nano Assault EX is currently at Nintendo for final testing, so the game should be released in a few weeks hopefully. Nano Assault EX is an improved version of the original Nano Assault retail game, with new gameplay modes, Circle Pad Pro support, improved graphics and improved frame-rate.
C3: Can we perhaps expect to see some of your other big works make a comeback on Wii U or 3DS, such as FAST: Racing League and Jett Rocket? What happened to Jett Rocker Super Surf for 3DS by the way?
Manfred Linzner: You can bet there is more from us coming on Wii U and 3DS. Our 3DS Jett Rocket game is near completion and will be released in early 2013. There is now also a US demo for "Art of Balance" on 3DS available. Check it out!
C3: Can you share with us any news regarding any future projects coming to Nintendo consoles that we may not yet know about?
Manfred Linzner: Our next game for Wii U is in the racing genre. We already made very nice progress with it. We will talk more about it in 2013.
