3DS eShop free-to-play title Steel Diver: Sub Wars has a major update on the way, which was originally planned for release in May. To be called version 2.0, it'll include the following new features and adjustments.

  • Bonuses for consecutive victories online
  • More subs available to unlock for Premium owners
  • More subs available to buy in the eShop
  • Point deductions for those that attack allies online
  • A new multiplayer stage
  • Fine-tuned submarine stats and more

The project's director, Takaya Imamura, has now posted a fresh update on Miiverse confirming what was becoming increasingly obvious — the update won't quite make it this month. Imamura-san explains that it's now targeting an early June release.

Hello, this is Takaya Imamura, the Director of Steel Diver: Sub Wars. As always, thank you so much for playing. I would like to take a moment to update you on Version 2.0, which we announced recently.

We had been aiming to release Version 2.0 in May. However, we'd now like to ask you for a little more time, in order to ensure that the finished update is as polished as possible. The current plan is to release the update in early June.

I apologise to those who have been looking forward to this release, and thank you for your patience.

Are you still enjoying Steel Diver: Sub Wars, and are you looking forward to the free update in the coming weeks?
