STEEL DIVER Product Details
Released on 04/05/2011
The game uses the Touch Screen in novel ways for each mode; there is simulation of the inside of a submarine with levers and switches to control the vessel for Mission and Periscope Strike modes.
The player can also share the game with another by using Download Play; this opens up Steel Commander into a 2- Player experience.
Steel Diver is an action-packed submarine combat game from Nintendo that immerses players in amazing 3D environments. Branching paths, split-second decisions and attacks from enemy ships make for a thrilling undersea adventure. The mix of 3D game play and one-of-a-kind controls—using the gyroscope and touch screen of the Nintendo 3DS system—makes for an unique combination that must be experienced to be believed.
Steel Diver on Nintendo 3DS Features:
- Unique Touch Screen controls for each mode
- Control a submarine to fight sea battles in 3D
- Battle friends in Steel Commander mode using Download Play
- Use motion controls to find enemy ships via periscope
- Missions: The player must navigate his submarine to the end of the course, avoiding obstacles and enemies.
- Periscope Strike: The player must, using the periscope, track down and sink enemy ships using torpedoes. This is done by the player actively turning around while holding the console; the motion controllers in the Nintendo 3DS will recognise the player’s movement and change the perspective of the periscope in-game accordingly (i.e., if the player turns left, the view in the periscope will also turn left). It is highly recommended to use a swivel chair to play this mode.
- Steel Commander: Similar to the board game Battleship, the player/s must hide ships around a grid/map and the goal is to try to sink those of his enemy on his own map using a submarine.
- There are three submarines in the game to correspond with three different difficulty levels.
There a particularly strong 3DS line-up for May and June, with three first-party titles on the slate. First up on 6th May is Steel Diver, which blends side-scrolling aquatic action think Ecco The Dolphin with torpedoes and a 3D periscope mode that uses the console gyroscope as you attempt to sink enemy ships. Best played in a swivel chair, or so we hear.
Just a fortnight later, Super Street Fighter IV will have a new challenger to its portable beat-em-up crown, as Tecmo Dead Or Alive: Dimensions arrives on 3DS, with Nintendo - perhaps surprisingly, given the game blend of violent scrapping and lovingly-rendered lady lumps - on publishing duties.
Perhaps most exciting, however, is the news that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will be with us on June 17th. This graphically-enhanced remake is being handled by little-known developer Grezzo Games, though as studio founder Koichi Ishii was the director of SNES classic Secret of Mana, it appears to be in safe hands.
The humble DS has two corkers in store, too: Nintendo is bringing over Square-Enix superb Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie, as well as localising Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, Namco-Bandai gorgeous action-RPG.
Meanwhile, June will see American Wii owners get their hands on Wii Play: Motion, sequel to the Wii launch title that was, until Call of Duty: Black Ops, the biggest-selling game of all time in the region. The title a collection of 12 minigames - comes bundled with a Wii Remote Plus. It doesn currently have a European release date, but Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that it will arrive on these shores later in the year.
