If there's one genre the DS never got quite right it's the humble shoot 'em up: while Nanostray and sequel Nanostray 2 were decent outings, they were merely stars in a dark night. 3DS might not suffer the same fate if D3Publisher has its say, as the company announces Dream Trigger 3D for 3DS.
An arcade-style shooter that lets players use sonar to identify enemies and blow them up, this could be a welcome addition to the 3DS's line-up. There are currently no images or videos for the game, but we'll pass them on when they arrive.
