Nano Assault EX trailer. We watched this announcement from Nintendo Direct and felt paralyzed with uncertainty. Is this a sequel? Is it the same as the retail Nano Assault? What about the Wii U game? What is this?
Shin’en has now made it safe for me to write about the game, by telling us what it actually is. “Nano Assault EX is based on the original Nano Assault retail game plus the all-new survivor mode, new online rankings, support for Circle Pad Pro, improved gameplay, updated graphics, etc.” So it’s not just a retail game on eShop, it’s supposed to be better than the retail release!
Though it was only shown in the EU Nintendo Direct last week, and it was conspicuously absent from the US press release that followed, Shin’en has obtained an ESRB rating and plans to publish Nano Assault EX in the US. Release dates for both regions are TBA.
