Fossil Fighters DS Trailer

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Revive the vivosaurs and battle it out on DS!

Many of you have already seen this E3 trailer for Fossil Fighters, but we thought we'd go ahead and put it up for those who might have missed it.

There's also a little bit of information taken from the official press release below to give you a better idea of what you can expect from this unique DS dinosaur adventure.

Fossil Fighters blends the timeless human fascination with dinosaurs with the fun of building a collection. The game lets players build a collection of more than 100 fantastical dinosaurs known as “vivosaurs.” This new game incorporates elements of discovery, tactics and strategy as players try to get the best vivosaurs on their teams to battle it out on the field.


  • Players dig for fossils and use the touch screen of the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi™ system to hammer, chip, drill and brush away the bits of rock around the fossil. When their efforts result in the buildup of dust, players blow into the Nintendo DS microphone to blow the dust away.
  • The game rates players on how well they handle the fossils during the cleaning process. The more carefully and completely a player cleans a fossil, the more powerful the vivosaur will be in battle. Vivosaurs can also gain more power through battles.
  • Players must collect various parts of each vivosaur. The head must be found first to bring a vivosaur to life while the body, arms and legs can be added to increase its power on the battlefield and imbue it with special powers.
  • The game features an engrossing role-playing storyline and vast environments for players to explore.
  • Players can connect wirelessly with friends to battle or trade their fossils.

Awaken an era! Are you ready? Coming Soon to DS and DSi, only from Nintendo.

@davegorack--You do know it is a Nintendo game just like Pokemon is. So why would Nintendo rip off its own money printing franchise for money? That meaning there must be many different elements that make this game different to Pokemon enough to be considered totally different games with the same concept. If not then I have no idea of what is going on with nintendo.

I kinda like the design of the Dinos. The human's design could use a little more work. Also the music really reminds me of Pokemon.

I really think this game has a lot of potential and can do great things but the only problem is that even if it gets amazing reviews and stuff it still has a potential of going down in flames due to the fact that it has a game such as colossal as pokemon to live up too. but im definitely all for it. it has a nice new twist on monster fighting games as i call them
