This week’s Famitsu is announcing that Rocket Company is developing Medarot 9: Kabuto Version and Medarot 9: Kuwagata Version for Nintendo 3DS. The Japanese gaming magazine posted up a brief preview of their coverage:
Details are scant, with the magazine only sharing that the game will feature a new lead character and the franchise’s traditional 3-on-3 battle system. However, from that tiny image some assumptions can be made. It looks like Metabee and Rokusho will be the mascot robots once again. Based on the uniforms many of the characters are wearing, the Laurel Detective Agency seen in Medarot 8 might be featured in this game. Soundtrack CDs seem to be the preorder/early bird bonus.
