Coming to the Japanese eShop this November, everywhere else possibly later

Nintendo has unveiled yet another downloadable 3DS game just weeks before its launch, this time a 3D dodge-em-up called Nimble Sakura Warrior. The game eschews the touch screen and tasks you to watch out for enemies telegraphing their attacks, before dodging them with the slide pad. Then, get this, you counter attack by hammering on the face buttons. Sarcasm aside, I’ve just beaten Dark Souls, which is really just that but for 60 hours, so I’m actually kinda stoked.


The game’s out in November for our Japanese friends, no date for us. But we do have these sweet screenshots for you, which kind of remind me of Okami, but if Okami was made on the N64. It looks pretty nice.
