Heavy Fire Will Blow Up your 3DS

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Are you one of the chosen few?

Teyon's Heavy Fire series of on-rails shooters has already torn through WiiWare with Heavy Fire: Special Operations, doubled back for the sequel Heavy Fire: Black Arms and set its sights on Wii, XBOX Kinect and PlayStation Move retail with Heavy Fire: Afghanistan despite quite unfavourable review scores for the downloadable iterations. But we've uncovered another secret mission set for 3DS via a GameFly listing: Heavy Fire: The Chosen Few, to be published by Mastiff.

While the site lists a North American release date of 27th October, it may only be a placeholder as there's no other information as of yet. We've reached out to Teyon for more details.

How do you feel about this series making its mark on the 3DS?

sounds interesting. also it sound like an arcade game. another game i'd like to see is house of the dead. arcade style games all ways do well as downloads



Dr-Rockzo said:

i agree with you number: 3 it would be a good download. not much money to make with arcade style games. they sell well as downloads but as a game alone not many buyers.

As it's a light-gun game, I don't see how this would work on 3DS.

Why the hell do they keep releasing this crap? The Wii Ware games were terrible.

@1: It's too bad Sega can't release a HOTD on Wii that isn't crippled with framerate issues like Return and Overkill. I'd love to see a sequel to Overkill, hell I'd even buy Overkill again if they released an HD version for Wii U that doesn't chug along like an old pickup truck taking it's last drive to the junkyard.



Dr-Rockzo said:

@7 Love the metaphor. Agree Sega needs to re-release Overkill. it would be vary nice



Burn said:

No thanks, none of those games look very good. I think light-gun games are on their way out in favor of first person shooters.



Samholy said:

download eshop would be interesting.
retail box, a big no. unless its used and pretty cheap.
i dont have much experience in rail shooters else than... house of the dead.

is it even good ? jugding from the screenshot, it looks... corny or something.

Heavy Fire is just plain shovelware! Don't know how this'll work on the 3DS though and I don't really want to. On-rail shooters are horrible compared to first/third person shooters, it's nice having control over your character.



Dr-Rockzo said:

rail-shooters are annoying! i love freedom to move. i don't mind arcade games i.e. mortal kombat, HOTD and capcom vs marvel. but rail shooters are where i draw the line.



Supremeist said:

This is my type of game, real stoked for more news on it. But if this is just a rail shooter, I'd probably get it on download, but depending on if the content and gameplay is well enough, it might be worth a shot at retail.



Gamer83 said:

Yeah, this is what I need to get me excited again about the 3DS... If we're going to get this kind of game, I'd prefer something that's at least halfway decent like Time Crisis or maybe a new Virtua Cop. Of course I wouldn't expect Nintendo to check in with Namco or Sega about those games, why should they try to get good ones on their system?



Sneaker13 said:

I liked the first one and really want to play the second. So I think a 3DS version could be interesting.



alLabouTandroiD said:

The genre could work decently on the 3DS. But as many others have said before: Keep it at a budget price! With all the good ones on the Wii it feels hard to pay more than 15 € for a download or 20 € for a retail version of a typical on rail shooter.
And Kid Icarus could as well redefine the genre in some way so you'll have heavy backfire here.

Am I the only one who misread the headline of this article as "Heavy Fire Will Blow on your 3DS"?



MeloMan said:

Ah, so it's Sneaker13 that's been quietly supporting this series... I see where the funds are coming from now...
