Shoot 'em up fans will be delighted to hear that a remake of the popular iOS blaster Hyperlight by CatfishBlues Games will be available in November for the New Nintendo 3DS. The console version known as Hyperlight EX is an enhanced version of the original and was developed specifically for the New Nintendo 3DS system.

Hyperlight EX is an high intensity arcade action game in which you control a spaceship that fights against hordes of evil alien monsters in a virtual cosmic environment.
