3DS platform puzzler Shifting World is getting a European release in September, courtesy of Rising Star Games.

Set in a black and white world, you have to make your way through over 60 levels by switching between 2D and 3D to access different platforms and sink through floors to reach locked off areas. As well as the main adventure mode, there'll also be bonus levels and time attack challenges.

Check out the trailer below. Is this something you'll be moving to buy next month?
