The denizens of boss battles have set their sights on Nintendo 3DS.

Sin & Punishment developer Treasure has announced that it is working on an action game exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.

In an interview with gamesTM magazine, the studio's CEO, Masato Maegawa, said:

"We are making a new game on Nintendo 3DS now. Not multiplatform, but exclusive to 3DS."

There is currently no information about this game, other than it is in the action genre. This lines up perfectly with the pedigree of Treasure's back catalog of titles, which includes Gunstar Heroes, Ikaruga, Bangai-O, Astro Boy: Omega Factor and even Wario World.

Sin and Punishment 3D, the first Treasure game to have depth.

Gunstar 3D Heroes. Seriously, those Gunstar Heroes game kicked ass. Perhaps they could release the GBA game on the eShop?

Another Gunstar would be kickass, but I really just want another Wario World (with Waluigi co-op).

How could you not mention the Sin and Punishment games?! One of my favorite games ever!

All the Gunstar Heroes games are the same with minor differences.  I played Gunstar Heroes and then the GBA one and was think I was pretty much playing the same game.  I really don't want another one.

Although the original Sin & Punishment is one of my favourite games, I really don't want a sequel on 3DS. Partly because my guess would be that the controls would be similar to Kid Icarus: Uprising (which I hated), but also because I'd prefer a sequel on Wii U instead. Sin & Punishment for me is all about the spectacle and the set pieces. I just think those types of games work better on a larger screen.

I'm also a huge fan of the original Gunstar Heroes, but what I'd really like to see is something new and interesting. I'd really like for them to surprise me with something else other than a shooter.
