Shin'en Multimedia Goes All Molecular On 3DS With Nano Assault

German based developers Shin'en Multimedia continually push the boundaries of what is thought technologically possible on the various platforms they develop for. On the Gameboy Advance they wowed us with the psuedo 3D shoot 'em ups Iridion 1 & 2,  and on Nintendo DS they impressed us with the actual 3D shmups Nanostray 1 & 2. While technologically impressive some concern however has been levied at their lack of spark in the gameplay department, however latest Wii Ware offerings Art Of Balance and FAST: Racing League have proven to gamers that Shin'en can deliver on all fronts. This all bodes extremely well for their jump back into the cockpit in Nano Assault on 3DS. A spiritual sequel to the Nanostray franchise that sees your ship reduced down to molecular level, as a tooled up piece of nanotechnology on a mission to rid a body full of viruses in a homage to 60s sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage, or if you're too young to remember that, 80s sci-fi classic Inner Space. Check out this promising looking video of the game in action from E3 2011. I Also like the way this is running on a 'portrait' HD Monitor, if anyone out there knows how I can pimp my 3DS up to do that...Answers on a postcard to the usual address.
