N3 DS Fossil Fighters Frontier Illustration02

Nintendo has confirmed that its latest Fossil Fighters outing will see a western release on the 3DS.

Fossil Fighters: Frontier — known in Japan as Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear in Japan — involves excavating the bones of dinosaur-like creatures known as Vivosaurs and reconstructing them to create an entirely new beast. One of the big new features of Frontier is the ability to drive around the landscape and track down fresh fossils with your handy radar system.

Previous Fossil Fighters games appeared on the Nintendo DS. The original was released in the west in 2009 and Fossil Fighters: Champions came two years later in 2011.

There's no solid release date for Fossil Fighters: Frontier at the time of writing.
