Steel Diver surfacing on May 12 Down Under

Nintendo's side-scrolling submarine game gets dated for Australia.

Like Pilotwings Resort, Steel Diver launched alongside the Nintendo 3DS in North America. But like the former, Steel Diver was also left off the Aussie launch lineup for the new handheld this week, although games like Pro Evolution Soccer 3D and The Sims 3 were there to pick up the slack.

Thankfully, though, virtual skippers won't have to wait too much longer to get their hands on Steel Diver, with Nintendo Australia announcing today that the game will be coming up for air on May 12.

Steel Diver is a side-scrolling action game that mixes in sections of first-person shooting between missions. The game has been criticised for its derivative storyline but praised for its good implementation of 3D effects.

@FlamingFury Was actually referring to Pilot Wings. My bad for not being specific. If I'm not mistaken the 3DS is locked to the NTSC/NTSC-J/PAL format? The UK, like us, use PAL and Pilot Wings is readily available there :D I take back what I said about Steel Diver too. By the time it arrives I'll be begging for anything new to play :P

@volume_three Region Locked. eBay is USELESS for 3DS.

Wait, why is it taking an extra month and a bit to come here... what the heck?! Nintendo Australia at it again... first Kirby's Epic Yarn now this. I really wanted to play this game. Since I'm not really into fighters or the new Pilotwings style (which is also delayed anyway). I'm stuck with Ridge Racer and maybe Shadow Wars...peh.

As if the lack of launch titles wasn't bad enough. I doubt anyone here will actually miss Steel Diver but Pilotwings too? Thank God for Ebay!
