Nintendo just announced a sequel to the submarine game Steel Diver—SubWars. It's a first-person shooter, and it'll be out on the 3DS eShop tonight.
Yup. You can wail "SAY IT AIN'T SO", but Nintendo can easily wail back - if they ever decided to begin wailing directly to consumers - "THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN'".
Underwater action game Steel Diver was originally going to be a Nintendo DS game, but it's since surfaced on the 3DS.
The 3DS launch game Steel Diver was first shown last June, back when it seemed like a simple, solid submarine side-scroller that might satisfy someone who wants a more traditional video game from their next Nintendo handheld.
On Monday, a handful of games were delayed in Japan. One title, Disaster Report 4, was shelved altogether for obvious reasons. But the game delays aren't over.
Totilo dives in to Nintendo's submariner Steel Diver on the 3DS today in New York. This new hands-on with the game also includes a look at the game's periscope mode.
I want 3DS games like Steel Diver, games that aren't from familiar franchises and aren't just the side-scrolling submarine adventures I thought they were. Watch as the game turns the 3DS into a motion-sensitive virtual periscope.
I threw a verbal elbow at some Nintendo people this past E3 and asked them to tell me which game I needed to play among the ones I might have easily missed. Two of them said right away: Steel Diver.
