Remember Jett Rocket on WiiWare? It arrived a good while ago — summer 2010 — and brought a short but sweet 3D platforming adventure to the platform, which despite the odd flaw earned an impressive 8/10 in our Jett Rocket review. After various rumours we then learned of a new entry coming to the 3DS eShop, Jett Rocket Super Surf, confirmed in December 2011 with a target release of early 2012.

Obviously that never happened, though Shin'en Multimedia is, let's not forget, a small studio producing a lot of content for Nintendo systems. It was busy bringing Nano Assault Neo to Wii U for launch and is putting the final touches to Nano Assault EX, among other things. Thankfully, the end of the wait for a new Jett Rocket fix looks to be close at hand, with the developer answering a query on YouTube with the following answer:

Jett Rocket 3DS is nearly completed and will be released early this year.

Short and sweet, but it means another promising title on the way to the handheld's eShop. The developer also told us in our recent interview that it's working on a new Wii U game in the racing genre, with more details to come later this year.

So, are you keen to try out a new Jett Rocket game on 3DS in the near future?
