Armadillo ranger Dillon made his 3DS eShop debut in 2012 with Dillon's Rolling Western, and it's been confirmed that he'll back for some more action this year.

During today's North American Nintendo Direct presentation, Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger was shown off. It appears to follow the same gameplay as its predecessor: it's a strategic action tower defence game that sees you deploying all sorts of weaponry around the map while rolling around to bring the pain to your foes directly.

There are a few noticeable differences though, the main one being the ability to recruit some buddies to aid Dillon in his defending. So far we know of Gallow, Bearboon and Nomad, who will be offering their services to our armadillo friend. Looks like he won't be a lone ranger after all.

Dillon will be rolling out the defences again on 11th April in North America. The game wasn't mentioned in the European Nintendo Direct, and there's no news on its release at this current time.
