Poor old CRUSH 3D. SEGA's layer-squashing puzzle title was originally supposed to release in September last year, then was delayed until January 2012 to give the 3DS a chance to build up some sales steam. Now the machine's done just that, it's time for Cru... oh. It's been delayed again. GameStop now lists the game with a 6th March 2012 release date for North America. SEGA has..

Jfilesguy said:

Wow, this so isn't steeling the concept of Super Paper Mario, nope, no stolen ideas here.

@johnnyMac ok, looks like they both just have similar core gameplay



johnnyMac said:

@Jfilesguy actually the original Crush came out little over a month after Super Paper Mario, meaning the two were either being developed at the same time. Though it's more likely since Zoe mode, the creators of Crush are a smaller studio than intelligent systems (SPM) they might have been working on Crush before IS was working on SPM.

The original was fun and this is a game that needs to be in 3D.



Nilkad_Naquada said:

@Jfilesguy: actually the gameplay is very different from super paper mario, and besides that this game wasn't an insult to nintendo.

and all complaints about lack of violence aside, this game looks very interesting and could someone please review it?

I don't see why pegi rated this 12. There's no violence or anything in it.
