According to an IGN report, Nintendo senior managing director Shigeru Miyamoto said that the new game based on the side-scrolling submarine-piloting title will be focused on multiplayer. "We're exploring [the game's design] from a perspective 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."

Nintendo has not confirmed a platform and release date for the new Steel Diver at this point in time, though CEO Satoru Iwata said last week during E3 that the game would be out this fiscal year (which ends in March 2014).
