Aqua Moto Racing 3D Hopes to Make Waves in the eShop on 27th June

Attempting to replicate smartphone success
Zordix AB has confirmed that, contrary to the impression given earlier, this title is only confirmed for 27th June in Europe, with a North American date yet to be confirmed.
Zordix is a developer that's enjoyed some success in the smartphone market with its Moto games, while Nintendo download gamers may know the company from the somewhat oddball DSiWare titles Valet Parking 1989 and 1950s Lawn Mower Kids. The studio's 3DS eShop debut will be with a new version of its Moto series — Aqua Moto Racing 3D.
It's now been confirmed that this will arrive in this week's update on 27th June, and based on the two separate press releases it looks destined for both Europe and North America. In its previous press release announcing the game, Zordix highlighted that its Moto releases on smartphones had accrued 15 million downloads and 1.5 million sales in total, which are very useful figures.
There's no new trailer as yet, but you can see the original preview video below. It brings back some memories of the Wave Race titles on Nintendo 64 and the GameCube, and we'll see whether it can make a similar splash soon enough.
