Rideon Japan is releasing the next game in the Mercenaries Saga series on the 3DS eShop next week.

Mercenaries Saga 3 will launch on October 5th in Japan for 500 Yen. The launch trailer can be viewed above.

The gameplay - which is a close match to Square Enix's excellent Final Fantasy Tactics franchise - looks largely unchanged, which is good news as the previous game was something of a budget gem.

Will you be picked this up, should it come to the west? Let us know by posting a comment.
