Nintendo’s RPG dinosaur series Fossil Fighters looks to be making a return next year with a new game in the series slated for 3DS.

According to Nintendo Everything, the 3DS version is said to feature improved visuals, a lowered camera perspective, and movement in third-person. Players will also be able to select from a male or female protagonist at the beginning of the game; details regarding the storyline are still unknown.

The original Fossil Fighters was released in Japan, North America and Australia. The sequel Fossil Fighters: Champions followed with a Japanese and North American release; European releases have been strangely absent over the years.

Will the eShop possibly save the day and allow the new Fossil Fighters to be released simultaneously in as many regions as possible? Let us know if you’re optimistic about a more global release with this new entry in the series.
