Thorium Wars Coming to DSiWare

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Big John Games announces new DSiWare offering.

This one came out of nowhere, but judging from the little we know about the game, it could be a great addition to the DSiWare service.

Thorium Wars lets you take control of five futuristic vehicles that you can use to take on the Thorions who are threatening mankind's very existence.

You can check out the official press clipping below for a little more information on this DSiWare vehicle shooter and you can expect a DSiWare release sometime in early September.

In the aftermath of a devastating global conflict to control revolutionary Thorium fuel cell technology, the existence of mankind is faced with a new threat. The Thorions, a technically advanced super species of Thorium powered machines once developed to wage war for mankind, have now turned against them. To stop the Thorions from destroying mankind altogether, you must develop the right tactics to drive them from their conquered land. Take control of the outcome as Thorium Wars proves to be the ultimate test for the survival of the fittest. Exciting features include:

Futuristic Vehicle Shooter: Blast through waves of Thorions using five powerful vehicles across twelve exciting missions.

Exotic Battlefields: Navigate your way through a wide variety of combat environments including deserts, lush valleys, oceans, air, and space.

Devastating Enemy Mechs: Face the terrifying army of Thorium beasts ranging from swarms of Redeye Drones to the bone crushing Manticore Walker.

Thorium Wars is scheduled to release in early September 2009. For more information and the latest updates visit or

I don't have a DSi but if this is a quality title, I hope means more to come and a better reason to get a DSi.

What you see is what we've got. We're trying to get some screenshots and a trailer. So far, no dice.

Wait a sec, what is this. The name makes it sound tactical, when I started reading it sounded like a futuristic Twisted Metal, as I read on it then sounded more like a vertical shooter. So what is it really?

This is the first game for DSiware I've really been looking forward to.



Machu said:

I love the idea, but these are the kind of games I want released on Wii and WiiWare, not a DSi.



Odnetnin said:

I would only want this if it had a multiplayer mode. Sadly, Wi-Fi is already off-limits.

(this is why most companies wait until there's actually info to present a game)

I seriously could have come up with this thematic material in 3 minutes and emailed Corbie. This article = timewaster.
