- Steel Diver: Sub Wars – Steel Diver is making a return, but in two formats and as a FPS. Sub Wars is both a free-to-play title and a $9.99 title. The free-to-play aspect consists of two different sub types and “limited” single-player content but full multi-player content. If you purchase it for $9.99, you will get more sub types and more content (obviously.) Steel Diver: Sub Wars is out TODAY!
- Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball – being ported over from Japan and given the localization treatment, Real Deal Baseball will start out as a free-to-download title. However, for the mini-games (which include hitting, pitching, umpiring and catching) you must pay $4 for each mini-game you want. Nintendo says you can also “haggle” to pay less than $4 by offering in-game rewards to lower the price you have to pay with real money. This game is free-to-download starting in April
- Weapon Shop de Omasse – a rhythimatic-blacksmithing game, you are controlling an apprentince of a Blacksmith who must forge weapons from Heroes from RPG storylines. The rhythm part comes in as you must forge the weapon by tapping the screen along to the beat you hear. This interesting rhythm title releases Febraury 20th for $7.99
- Inazuma Eleven – previously being exclusive to Japan, this game is finally coming to North America. Inazuma Eleven is a hybrid of sports game and RPG. The RPG aspect is exploring, battles and conversation found in typical RPG games. However, the battles are Soccer matches, this is where the sports aspect comes in. Using the stylus, you control the players individually. You can also train and recruit new players. This game is available today for $19.99
