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.

The system seems to be using the 3DS' motion sensors to allow the user to rotate where they stand, peering for ships to torpedo. What a great idea!

This is another fine video uploaded to YouTube by user LogicToilet. I salute you!

The 3DS is slated for a February release in Japan. Steel Diver will be published by Nintendo and presumably will come to the U.S. as well.
