Rocket Slime setting sail on Japanese 3DS this Winter

Square Enix has launched an official website for the next installment in the Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime series -- this time, the explosively-propelled blob will save the world on the Nintendo 3DS. Subtitled Daikaizoku to Shippodan, the game will see the cast of once-antagonistic heroes set out to the open seas, create their own ships and engage in hectic naval battles with pirates. We bet the series' staple "fire whatever you want" cannons make an appearance.

The game will also feature two-to-four player multiplayer, SpotPass and Wi-Fi support and, of course, 3D visuals. The site lists a Winter 2011 release window for Japan, but doesn't mention a North American localization. If Square Enix is waiting to find out if we'd be interested in three-dimensional cannon duels, allow us to give them a definitive answer: Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
