Abylight Studios has confirmed that it is resurrecting its DSiWare title AfterZoom on the 3DS.
The DSiWare version - originally released in 2011 - was awarded with a part-grant by the Ministry of Culture of the Spanish government, and mixed real-world biology with fantasy elements.
There's no release date as yet. Here's the official word from the studio:
Here in Abylight Studios we want to turn 2016 into one of the best years since the creation of the team, and not only because of our released games, but also for the beautiful collaborations we are working on. After the 'Musicverse: Electronic Keyboard' success on the Nintendo eShop, and almost with no time for us to recover from the celebration, we want to share more good news!
Because of the interest and love that you showed us about bringing 'AfterZoom' to Nintendo 3DS™, it is finally heading to the portable console. However, as you may imagine already, we can't reveal further details, but we hope to start releasing more information in the coming weeks.
Prepare your Nintendo 3DS™ system because we will turn it into a lab from another planet! On this new installment of the franchise, 'AfterZoom' unveils the origins of such a weird microorganism collection, which consists of more than 150 species. These organisms are feisty and there will be lots of training to calm them down…
AfterZoom only scored 5/10 in our review, but perhaps this remastered edition can improve on the formula? Let us know if you're interested by posting a comment below, and you can also check out a trailer for the smart device version released in 2015.
