German developer Shin'en is quite the wunderkind on Nintendo platforms. The studio has a history of pulling off technically impressive feats, such as the Iridion series on Game Boy Advance and most recently Nano Assault Neo on the Wii U eShop. But its most brilliant endeavor may be Jett Rocket, a 3D platformer that not only matches some of the effects found in Super Mario Galaxy but also manages to fit within WiiWare's 40 MB size limit.

Shin'en recently announced a sequel to Jett Rocket entitled Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai, and now you can see some screens on the newly opened website. Jett Rocket II will be coming to the 3DS eShop, and it will provide a mix of 2D and 3D platforming gameplay. Most impressive of all, it'll be one of the few 3DS games to achieve 60 FPS while in full 3D mode.

Ugly character design aside, this looks beyond amazing for an eShop title. Shin'en must have made a deal with the devil to be able to accomplish such trickery. No release date has been set, but I'll be keeping my eye on this baby.

Now that balance is being disrupted, as Dawn sends a faithful warrior, Aaru, to travel the domains of the other gods on a quest to remake the world. Dark and twisted lands await.more
