Nimble Sakura Warrior for 3DS is like samurai Punch-Out!!

Among the news at the recent Nintendo Direct conference -- where the PictoChat-ish app Swapnote was announced -- a new title called Nimble Sakura Warrior for the 3DS eShop was revealed. The game places you in the role of a wandering samurai as he chops down foes, though battles aren't a simple hack-n'-slash affair. In a similar fashion to Punch-Out!! or Infinity Blade, movement during battles is limited; you have to dodge at the right moment with the slide pad and counter with buttons.

I'm digging the art style of the game, which looks like a blend of Mystical Ninja and Captain Rainbow. Characters have strange geometric heads like they were Muppets or something. It's great! Combined with some good ol' reflex-based action, Nimble Sakura Warrior sounds like my cup of moonshine.

The game will drop in Japan in November, but no overseas release has been announced yet.
