Eurogamer reports that developer High Voltage will be bringing their sci-fi first person shooter, Conduit, to the Nintendo 3DS.

"Now that we're winding things down a lot of our resources are on pulling this technology over to 3DS," said High Voltage CCO Eric Nofsinger.

"We are very much pulling over this engine and this technology on this new hardware," explaining that the tech is looking "very good."

"We're still early. The resolution is definitely lower, but the screen real estate is smaller so it balances out. We've not had a lot of severe optimisation yet, but we're going to be able to have something very close to this [Conduit 2] on the 3DS probably by GDC.

"We've got environments from this already up and running around. You can shoot, you can select different weapons and you can see enemies. It runs pretty darn well with full 3D and everything."

"We're very excited about that system and what we're going to be be able to do on it," he said, explaining that they're optimistic with what they can do with multiplayer now that Nintendo are streamlining the Friend Code functionality.

"The work we've done with the Wii, we're going to have a serious leg up. It's quite different than developing for the DS and the DSi. Developers like us that have more of a console experience on GameCube and on Wii are going to be able to take advantage of the 3D better and they're going to be able to do a little bit more with the hardware than people who are coming at it from the straight DS angle and used to doing more 2D, or very limited 3D, kinds of things."
