Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Title Based on 3DS’ Steel Diver

Posted on June 18, 2013 AT 03:46pm

Last week Nintendo held a pre-recorded E3 conference online via Nintendo Direct. Many announcements came out of their conference, including a subtle hint that the company is wanting to pursue a free-to-play game.

The latest bit of news to come out of Nintendo is the game/franchise in question. You might be surprised to know that it’s none other than Steel Diver, which originally launched with the Nintendo 3DS. Of all the properties Nintendo could potentially pursue a free-to-play model, I’m curious to know why they’d select Steel Diver.

Nintendo’s senior managing director, Shigeru Miyamoto, appears to be full of surprises lately—we ought to expect the unexpected. Miyamoto has said that the upcoming free-to-play game will include battle-focused multiplayer. He also has gone on record saying, ”There is something we’re doing with the Steel Diver idea that I think is going to open things up with that game.” He further explains that the free-to-play title is “…going to be very fun. We’re exploring from a perspective of where we can take that from a multiplayer standpoint — it’s going to have this four-player battle mode that I think is going to be very interesting.”

Miyamoto hasn’t announced any sort of a release date, or even what platform Nintendo is considering. What are your thoughts? Think it’ll be something we’ll see on the Wii U, or the 3DS?
