Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures To Utilise Touch Screen and 3D Effect
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Character swapping, stats and info on Wii U and 3DS second screens
Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures has been available on PC for a good while now, yet considering the relevance of Nintendo systems to the YouTube series — which now has a feature movie approaching release — some have been particularly keen to play it on Wii U and 3DS. A recent update pegged it as coming "very soon" to the big N's platforms.
Publisher ScrewAttack has now outlined a couple of details to us on the features that will be utilised on Nintendo's systems. In both versions the touch screen on offer will "allow you to change characters and provide additional information, like powerup descriptions and stat tracking". The 3DS version, meanwhile, will have autostereoscopic 3D — surprisingly not something that can always be taken for granted — but doesn't have any StreetPass functionality planned at the moment. It seems the title will make some use of the platforms' respective features, but developer FreakZone Games is clearly limiting its scope to fairly standard concepts for these Nintendo ports.
As tweeted previously, it's been emphasized that the title will arrive on both systems soon, with ScrewAttack telling us that we can expect it to be available "within the next few months". It will arrive later in Europe, however.
Is this a title you're looking forward to playing on Wii U or 3DS?
