Arc System Works will be bringing Arc Style: Solitaire to the North American 3DS eShop in the near future. Nintendo has the game listed on its website, meaning a release shouldn’t be too far off.

Arc Style: Solitaire comes with Klondike and Monte Carlo varieties. Players can also choose to play on the top screen or touch screen. Features include undo, hints, and the ability to save and return to your games later. More decks and backgrounds can be unlocked as well.

Interesting that Swords & Darkness’ opening video is spoken in English. That bodes well for a western release!
