Players wondering why the games from Japan’s GUILD01 Collection have gone on sale HERE needn’t wonder much longer as the reason for the sale is none other than in honor of 3 games from the GUILD02 Collection to soon be joining them on the Nintendo 3DS. The 3 new games from Level-5 finally making it to North America and Europe will be The Starship Damrey, Bugs vs. Tanks!, and Attack of the Friday Monsters: A Tokyo Tale.
The Starship Damrey is an adventure game centered on horror and suspense as the player must find their way through to discover the truth without any aid from tutorials or hints. Coming from designer Kazuya Asano and writer Takemaru Abiko, who lead the way for Japanese text based adventures. As an added bonus, those who have downloaded any of the previous titles can explore a special additional scenario after reaching the end.
Bugs vs Tanks! takes things away from the horror genre and into the action shooter genre, placing players in the controlling seat of a WWII tank that has unfortunately been shrunk to the size of insects. Coming from Keiji Inafune, of Mega Man, Onimusha, and Dead Rising fame, the game tasks players with fighting the now huge bugs, from the player’s perspective. Allowing the players to customize their tanks, it also offers up to 4 person co-op missions and StreetPass enabled friendly cover fire. Bugs vs Tanks! also offers a bonus for those having bought any of the previous titles with an exclusive Gold Tank.
Finally Attack of the Friday Monsters: A Tokyo Tale is the story of a young boy living in a nice quiet village, that also happens to have the giant monsters from 1970’s Japanese TV shows coming to life every Friday. The usual. Coming from Kaz Ayabe of Millennium Kitchen known for the Boku no Natsuyasumi (Summer Holidays 20th Century) series, players will be able to get a good sense of the situation through “Tokyo-life simulation” gameplay. As with the others, players that have purchased any of the previous titles will receive a bonus in the form of a “Space Defense Department Junior Member Notebook” featuring concept art and illustrations.
Some pretty interesting games for those in North America and Europe to look forward to when they release this Spring for the Nintendo 3DS eShop, though unfortunately they will only be localized in English.
