Lovely Planet

The first person shooter genre is one that has occasionally come under fire for its occasionally derivative design. After all, you can only play so many militaristic "dudebro" shooters until they all just begin to blend together. Fortunately, there's been a stronger movement in the latest generation towards more innovation in this field, and it seems that a new title on the way to the North American eShop will be continuing that trend.

The game is called Lovely Planet, and it's a much cuter take on the first person shooter genre. The world looks almost like that of Playstation's Katamari Damacy, but it footage seems to indicate that it'll be a relatively challenging adventure. It lands on the North American eShop on 5th April, and we'll be sure to have a review out with our thoughts. Here's the release trailer from a previous version of the game:
