Teyon announces a range of festive discounts
We're certainly fans of Steel Empire on the 3DS eShop, a classic shmup that's been given a quality remaster on the portable - we didn't exactly hold back any praise for it in our review. Unfortunately, however, it's been rather pricey in North America ($29.99 in the US) and has taken a while to arrive in...
Steel Empire may be a distant memory to Japanese and North American players, but Europe still doesn't have access the cult 3DS steampunk shooter. Publisher Teyon previously stated that the game might not make the jump to the Old World, but that decision seems to have been overruled as the game is currently waiting on a USK rating, after...
3DS eShop side-scroller reduced to just $15.99 this week
Teyon has today announced that it is knocking 40 percent off the price of critically acclaimed eShop steampunk shooter Steel Empire. Originally released on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive back in the early '90s, this classic blaster was recently updated for the 3DS. We gave it a glowing 9/10...

Teyon handling the localisation, no European release planned for now
We went a bit potty over Steel Empire when it was remastered for the Japanese 3DS eShop at the start of the year. A classic Sega Mega Drive / Genesis shooter from the early '90s, the game was given a makeover for Nintendo's handheld which included new visuals and an improved...
Mega Drive, Game Boy Advance or 3DS - which is best?
In case you hadn't noticed from the amount of coverage we've been giving it, steampunk shooter Steel Empire recently launched on the 3DS eShop in Japan. A port of a 1992 Sega Mega Drive / Genesis blaster, the game is possibly best known for its eye-catching visuals, with massive steam-powered...
Taking to the skies
Steel Empire has just launched in Japan, and you'll be pleased to know that our resident import expert Kerry is already dodging shrapnel in order to bring you a hands-on preview very soon. In the meantime we have more good news — publisher Starfish SD has confirmed that it is coming to North America later this year. Based on...
The 16-bit Sega release is getting a new lease of life
We first told you about the 3DS eShop conversion of the cult Mega Drive / Genesis shooter Steel Empire in August last year, but things have been pretty quiet since then. Thankfully, we can now update you with some more info — the game hits Japan later this month and will retail for 2940 yen...
