Update to 3.0 Version of Steel Diver: Sub Wars

You may have noticed a little gift appear on your 3DS menu recently—that’s Nintendo’s intriguing shooter game Steel Diver: Sub Wars, which was recently updated to version 3.0. This new update adds some serious tweaks to the game and how it works, and rather than list them all in our own words, here’s the update list from Nintendo’s handy-dandy support site:


-Adds Friend Battle mode, allowing users to play with people on their Nintendo 3DS friend list (Premium Version exclusive)

-Adds ability to access the submarine shop in the Free Version

-Adds three new submarines to the Premium Version that can be unlocked after playing a certain number of Local Play matches

-Two new stages have been added to Local Play and Friend Battle matches: Underwater Rings and Underwater Plant

-Adds eight new crew members to the Premium Version

-Submarines hit by their teammates’ torpedoes will no longer take damage, but damage points will still be deducted from the attacker’s score

-Adds ability to send short pre-set messages in Morse Code chat using the directional pad

-Joining an online match in the Free Version now requires just one Play Coin instead of two

-Other adjustments have also been made to balance the game and make for a more pleasant gaming experience


The upside to this game, if you haven’t played before, is that it’s a free-to-play title. It does have limited functionality at the free-to-play stage (though you can upgrade to a full version, of course), but if submarines are your thing, this may be one worth checking out—plus there’s no risk for you to do so this way.
