Can you do a Gears of War-style game on the 3DS? Or rather, can you do that kind of game and make it look amazing? V.D.-dev Games not only says the answer is a firm “yes” but also has the game to prove it in IronFall: Invasion. The new trailer was released today in conjunction with this morning’s Nintendo Direct, and it shows off a third-person shooter filled with guns, sniping, tasers, explosions, and a giant mechanical worm all moving at a brisk pace and with plenty of visual flair.
More than just a pretty face, IronFall: Invasion is going to be a multiplayer shooter with support for up to six players at once either locally or online, coupled with a single-player campaign they estimate to be about six hours long. The video also says it’s enhanced for New 3DS, although seeing as it doesn’t explain how I can only assume the right c-stick works the third-person camera. Whether you choose to go New or Old 3DS, though, IronFall is currently looking like a pretty sharp entry into the world of sci-fi space marine third person shooters.
