Its imminent arrival on a three-dimensional platform could have children of the 80s glad it's not become the Red-Green Lantern in order to provide a sense of depth.
But no fear of that, as Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, scheduled for a June 10th launch date, makes use of the handheld console's lenticular-style screen instead.
This angles each column of pixels towards one of the player's eyes, allowing each to see a slightly different picture and trick the brain into perceiving depth.
For Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, players can take over the role of Hal Jordan, the pilot whose heroics form the basis of the story.
A new trailer for the game has just been released, giving an insight into gameplay on the Nintendo 3DS.
However, for those who prefer their consoles to have a little more grunt, the game will also be out for the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 platform.
