Steampunk Shmup Steel Empire is Finally Coming to the American eShop Next Week

Steel Empire was a game that originally saw release on the Sega Genesis, but it was later ported to the 3DS in Japan by a collaboration between developers Mebius and Starfish.

As you know, we love shmups here at Niche Gamer and having a throwback steampunk shmup come out now is pretty exciting stuff. Featured above is the game’s North American trailer, as it has been recently confirmed for a release here on the 3DS eShop.

The 3DS remaster comes with full stereoscopic 3D support, re-tweaked difficulty, a new replay mode, and of course – improved visuals.

Steel Empire is coming on July 31st, although the price of nostalgia is high at $29.99 dollars.
