IronFall Invasion Starts the Shooter Invasion on 3DS

If the comments that came after the Nintendo Direct presentation today were anything to indicate what fans want for their consoles, the announcement of IronFall Invasion may have sated a thirst that many Nintendo fans have had for some time.

IronFall Invasion is an indie-developer third person shooter for the 3DS eShop, developed by VD-dev and heavily inspired by franchises like Gears of War. The game will use the New Nintendo 3DS/3DS XL’s C-stick for the precise control scheme that’s needed for a game of this genre, but you’ll also be able to play it on the regular 3DS or 2DS console.

There will be 6-player online and local multiplayer, as well as a single-player campaign. Nintendo isn’t really known for its shooters, and the 3DS has had a drought of these kinds of games (due to the single circle pad that limits controls), but the C-stick may change all that.

If you missed the presentation, here’s the game trailer below. We don’t have a release date yet, but we’ll keep you updated!
