The Dead Heat Breakers Announced for 3DS

Nintendo announced The Dead Heat Breakers.

The Nintendo 3DS game is a follow-up to the 3DS release Dillon’s Rolling Western. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the upcoming sequel.

The game features action and tower defense mechanics, and will have you playing as the titular armadillo Dillon once again. There’s third-person action segments, as well as rear-facing race mechanics. You can also use a custom Mii character to help Dillon in his adventures.

A Japanese release is set for sometime next spring, but a western release hasn’t been confirmed at the time of publication.

    Looks better than the original.

  • Envy-Noson

    Did it just went edgy?

  • Loli de 42 lagrimas pelo Mirio

    they should have had this and Phantasy Star on the American direct.

  • ProxyDoug

    Looks pretty cool.

    I remember this being very marmite. Great game hindered by touch controls. The new mad-max style instead of western could be interesting- but I’m hoping the combat is improved a bit and they let you use buttons.
