Square Enix has launched a new teaser website promoting the Dragon Quest spinoff's introduction to 3D gaming.

A sequel to Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime (itself a sequel to a Japan only GBA title) is heading to Nintendo 3DS in Japan, according to a new teaser page at the official Dragon Quest website. 

The game, which is called Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3: Daikaizoku to Shippodan, and appears to be pirate themed (kaizoku means pirate in Japanese).

The game looks to take full advantage of the 3DS capabilities, including Wi-Fi, StreetPass, and mulitplayer support. Square Enix has promised full 3D visuals, which is a major shift from the 2D only graphics of the previous titles in the series.

The latest issue of Japan's Weekly Sh┼Źnen Jump reports that players will be able to construct their own ships and take them into battle while at sea.

No release is mentioned for North America, but the Japanese release is set for winter 2011.

I'm genuinely excited about this. Here's to hoping bring it to the West.

So, will THIS ONE at least come to Europe? The last one didn't.

If I don't own a 3DS by the time this comes out, I'll buy it just for this game. Loved the first one on the DS, one of the system's under-appreciated gems.
