Trailblazer set to blaze 3DS?

It’s not often we cover gaming news on these pages but here’s a tasty morsel we couldn’t pass up on. According to an interview with Team 3’s Shaun Southern in the new issue of Retro Gamer – which has a nice shiny Zelda cover this month – a 3DS version of the cult retro classic Trailblazer is “up and running and looks amazing”.

This is more than likely a conversion of Team 3’s still to be released Trailblazer iPhone (pictured). Trailblazer was first released on such formats as the Commodore 64 and was also revived for the notoriously troubled Gizmomdo handheld. Requiring lightening fast reflexes, it’s an oddly addictive and slightly trippy time-trial based futuristic racer.

Due to having a basic nature it’s not hard to imagine it being released on the 3DS e-shop. That said, Puzzle Bobble Universe ended up being a boxed full price release and that was woefully short on content.
