New Raid over the River info

ROTR Screen

Developer Nibris is probably better known for working on the very cool looking Wii title, Sadness.  They are also known for keeping very quiet about their works in progress.  So it was a nice surprise this morning to find a press release from the company  all about Raid over the River, a vertical shooter for the DS.  The game has now been renamed ROTR – see what they did there?  Here are some more details on the game:

– 6 campaigns, each with several missions

 6 different vehicles to be driven in 6 different time dimensions

very extensive weaponry

 fuel and ammunition management requiring strategic approach to missions, defending ranshipment bases

 cooperation and synchronisation of actions with other units

extensive, full of action, multi-thread scenario putting the player in an intrigue spanning hundreds of dimensions

3D graphics on both screens

set of dodging and special attacks taking advantage of special features of NDS

hidden missions, vehicles, bonuses enabled in the course of playing

extensive multiplayer mode allowing to enjoy the game longer

The screenshot looks very promising, and shooters seem to be having something of a renaissance lately thanks in part to recent Virtual Console releases.  Release date is still pretty loose at “2007”.  More details as we get them.
