Free-To-Play Steel Diver Coming to Nintendo

Posted June 19, 2013 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

At last week’s investor and analyst presentation Nintendo talked about having a free-to-play game in the works that would be slated to come out sometime before the end of the year. Nintendo didn’t mention the franchise right away, but did clarify that it wouldn’t be one of there popular franchises like Mario or any other big hitters like that. But according to an interview that Nintendo’s very own Shigeru Miyamoto did with IGN, that franchise was announced to be Steel Diver, a 2D game that was originally a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS. Unfortunately, Steel diver’s initial launch “sunk” so to speak. It left many gamers very disappointed in the game, and its lack of good controls is what ruined it for so many.

Fearing many would automatically shoot down a recreation of Steel Diver, Miyamoto specified that the game’s design would be rather different, since they are viewing it from the free-to-play standpoint. Miyamoto failed to mention what platform they are planning on releasing the game on, whether it be the 3DS or the Wii U. I think if they put it on the Wii U, it would probably go over better. Also, who’s to say it’ll be one or the other, why not both Nintendo systems?

Miyamoto told IGN:

There is something we’re doing with the Steel Diver idea that I think is going to open things up with that game… It’s going to be very fun. We’re exploring from a perspective of where we can take that from a multiplayer standpoint – it’s going to have this four-player battle mode that I think is going to be very interesting.

Miyamoto also mentioned that the free-to-play idea was still being explored to some degree, deciding whether there would be some kind of micro-transactions or some sort of subscription fee for the game. He also said that they are hoping to show something very soon for the game, and with Nintendo having their Nintendo Directs, it’s only a matter of time before we see something on the newest rendition of Steel Diver.
