Game Profile

Dream Trigger 3D is a completely original arcade shooter featuring over 50 stages that will captivate players with a seamless combination of stunning visuals and explosive 3D action.

Dream Trigger 3D is designed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS™ system and is played by one or two players in a frenetic combination of color and light mixed with a dynamic multi-track musical score. The visuals provide an unparalleled immersive experience as players use sonar bombs to destroy and detect enemies, dodge attacks and move through a variety of layered environments that burst off the screen in 3D. Ultimately each player is to be the “fixer of dreams” and end nightmarish attacks forever before being consumed completely.
