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.
