Touch Battle Tank 3D Rolls Out Next Month

Posted by Mike Mason

Tanks a lot

North American tank enthusiasts, mark 9th August in your diaries — Touch Battle Tank 3D is on its way to the 3DS eShop.

The arcade-style title has you taking control of your very own tank and blasting away any enemy forces that happen to be about. If you've ever played the Tanks! mini-game in Wii Play, you'll know roughly what to expect.

The surprisingly speedy tanks are shifted around with the Circle Pad, while precision aiming is assigned to the touch screen. 50 stages, plus a further 20 bonus levels and medals to earn, should keep you in the driving seat for a little while. There are also two types of tank to experiment with, Power or Speed. The latter sounds the most exciting; it can jump over mines and enemy fire.

Touch Battle Tank 3D will cost just $4.99 when it's released next month. We've added some screenshots to the media album below, and you can also visit its game page on Nintendo of America's website for a very thorough trailer that explains the gameplay.

Looks cool. I wish Nintendo would release the Tanks! minigame on the eShop along with some new levels. It's the only minigame that made WiiPlay worth the $10.

Looks like the sequel to tanks in Wii Play we've all been waiting for. Might be worth picking up.

Me Too and I wish there was a Survival mode as well to see how long you would last. And also put a online leaderboard of your times.

On my wish list. I loved Wii Play Tanks, and although this game has no connection to it outside of the genré, it looks like it'll be good fun.

Looks Brilliant! But what about Online Multplayer? Can we have that?

By the Way Tanks! on Wii Play was a brilliant game!

I know it's a bit dissapointing, but since it was one of the earliest eShop releases (in Japan), it probably won't have online.

Still probably going to be a very fun game, though.

@Fabian
Europe is not that important for Nintendo it seems compared to Japan en US. Laak at the difference between the Eshops and an adapter or not with the 3DS XL.

Why does it suck sooo much being left-handed for DS/3DS I really hate using abxy for controls instead of the stick (Thank God I have the CCP)

The 3D looks terrible in the trailer. It looks like you're just looking at a 2D image in 3D space.

@iphys, while that is true, you also got to take into account that this is an early eShop title that's made by a smaller dev.

It's probably a miracle that they're (Silver Star Japan) even able to bring it over here. It's understandable that they wouldn't have the funds to make it better than it's original release given how small they are (this goes for not being able to improve 3D, and lack of multiplayer).
