This must be Renegade Kid fan month or something. First we get Xeodrifter in the Nintendo eShop, practically out of nowhere, sating Metroidvania fans everywhere. Then there is news that the game that, at least for me, symbolizes Renegade Kid, the original Dementium, is coming to the 3DS via the eShop! Better yet, it will fix the enemy respawns and save points to make the game more playable, meaning I might actually beat the game finally! The original DS version of the game was notoriously difficult for just those reasons, and I must say I’ve always wanted to have a reason to replay it.

As if that wasn’t enough, the 3DS version of Dementium is supposed to run at 60 FPS with the 3D turned on. In addition, Renegade Kid says they have plans to port Dementium II to the 3DS later, and maybe even make a Dementium III in the future. As for the original Dementium port, it is slated to hit the eShop sometime in Q2 of 2015.

I for one am stoked and, though I already own both Dementiums, will probably end up buying them on the eShop, especially if they have new features. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
