What is Square Enix's Heroes of Ruin for Nintendo 3DS?

Well, it's so far (officially) unannounced, but quick mention of Heroes of Ruin and a single piece of artwork from the game appeared on the developer's Facebook page earlier today. That developer would be Orlando-based n-Space.

That's the development team behind Gamecube game Geist and numerous Nintendo DS games based on the Call of Duty, James Bond and Star Wars franchises. They posted (and rather quickly pulled) the artwork below, which was spotted by Tiny Cartridge. Heroes of Ruin was listed for the Nintendo 3DS and obviously features guns, swords, polearms, midriff-bearing warrior ladies and lots of angry faces.
