Crush3D opening on 3DS Sept. 6

Sega and Zoe Mode bringing new installment in perspective-shifting puzzle platformer to Nintendo's new handheld this fall.

by

Crush was described as "one of a kind" when it was first released for the PSP in 2007, but it will soon be losing that distinction of uniqueness. Today, Sega announced it would be bringing Crush3D to the 3DS on September 6 in North America. The game is slated to arrive in Europe and Australia on September 9.

Miss the pun, and Sega may be crushed.

Fitting to the 3DS, Crush3D's primary puzzle mechanic sees gamers navigating an intricate world by swapping between 2D and 3D fields of play. Through the "crushing" mechanic, players will be able to expand and collapse the gameworld, allowing them to reach seemingly impenetrable areas or heights.

The platformer also incorporates the 3DS's StreetPass functionality, which is a passive connectivity feature built in to Nintendo's hardware. When it's activated, gamers will be able to leave gifts for friends that can then be collected in-game.

Zoe Mode will return as developer on this latest installment in the Crush series. For an idea of what to expect from Crush3D, check out GameSpot's review of the original Crush.

It doesn't matter if this actually a bit of a super paper mario copy. The 3ds is in need of good games if it wants to survive.

This looks fantastic!!!! definitely on my list of games to get, although probably not right away if its a 40 dollar one..maybe 30 or even 25. The first Crush on the PSP was pretty cool.

An outstanding puzzle platformer like Echochrome, LocoRoco and Portal. (This is a reason I like PSP) Each has unique game mechanics. C.R.U.S.H. also has a good, witty storyline. A game that'll make me buy a 3DS.

This game is interesting. It reminds me of Super Paper Mario. I bet it will look amazing in 3D.
