Turtle Tale Is Running And Jumping To The 3DS eShop

Hero in a half shell

Saturnine Games has revealed its next 3DS eShop title, a platformer by the name Turtle Tale.

The game is a 2D platformer which calls to mind classic 8-bit and 16-bit games of yesteryear, and takes advantage of the console's 3D screen.

Saturnine Games' Edward Di Geronimo Jr. shared this bit of information with us:

You play as a turtle armed with a water gun on a mission to defend his tropical island. It's a classic style 2D platformer - no gimmicks this time. Think of it as a tribute to the games we grew up with on the NES and SNES. And of course, being a 3DS game, we take advantage of the 3D.

Doesn't really look like something that would take advantages of the 3D effects, but you never know!

The screenshots don't tickle me, but I won't judge till I've seen some gameplay

The screens make me think of a mediocre flash game. I'll keep an eye on this, but not too impressed thus far.

Ohh, I'm interested. I don't like the screen shots either but I like the idea of it.

I love these 3Dized Classic type games. I will get this. I just wish Konami would 3Dize Bonk and Bonks Revenge with the original graphics from the TurboGrafx/PCengine Im sure this game will be fun and this classic 3Dization that these Devs are doing, is just awesome! It really makes the game feel like its a true fantasy world where this realistic 3D is just to close to the real world. Looks very colorful

Saturnine games... Aren't they the ones who made Antipole on DSiWare? That was a pretty good game. Hope this turns out just as good.

Was that a TMNT reference?

Hm...I don't particularly like the platforms in the game; the colouring seems off compared to the background and the characters

2D platformers always pique my interest, but I'll wait to read a review here on Nintendo Life first, before considering buying it. This one looks cool, though.

It actually looks kind of cool. I might consider this game if I see some videos.

The only thing that doesn't please me aesthetically are those platformy bits that look too squared-off at the edges. Other than that, it looks cute and I will be on the lookout for a review.

This can't be more than 10 dollars and even that might be asking for a bit too much. Hopefully they'll show more but right now it looks pretty bland.

My inner zoologist is outraged at the fact that the turtle has teeth, but that's just me... at least it's not a bird with teeth. That's when I unleash my full rage. And don't even THINK about calling an ape a monkey. THEY ARE GROUPED DIFFERENTLY FOR A REASON, PEOPLE.
Wow, I got off topic fast. Sorry if I offended anyone in any way. But yeah, I'll get this if it turns out to be good and is reasonably priced.
