Nintendo's first-person submarine battle game Steel Diver: Sub Wars will be updated to Version 2.0 later this month, if all goes according to plan. Director Takaya Imamura took to Miiverse to explain what's coming up next for this free-to-play 3DS eShop title:

"In Version 2.0, in Internet Battle mode, you will now also earn bonuses for consecutive victories in Matched Skills Battles," noted Imamura. "Additionally, owners of the Premium Version will have access to a larger arsenal of subs as they level up, and more subs will be made available for purchase in the Online Shop within the game.

"We also received a lot of feedback via Miiverse about players attacking their allies. In Version 2.0, players who torpedo their allies will receive a warning message on their screen, and points will be deducted for every hit. We're also planning to add a new multiplayer stage, and to continue to fine-tune the submarine stats, among other things."

I had forgotten about Sub Wars shortly after its mid-February release and I'm sure many of you could say the same. Leave it to updates like this to bolster that player base a bit.

Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars

Steel Diver kind of came and went in 2011 on the 3DS. As a brand new IP for Nintendo it was a gamble, and one that seemingly didn't pay off with critics or fans. But they're back in 2014 with a free-to-play version title...more

Warframe's next update lets you fly around in space as a ninja

I had played a bit of Warframe on PC to see what it was about, thought it was merely okay, and moved on not much later, as you do. Digital Extremes' free-to-play cooperative action game has since come to PlayStation 4 -- and...more

Review in Progress: Firefall

Firefall is a game that has seemed to get a lot of press over the past few years, often for the wrong reasons. Whether it's word of troubled staff, protests, or delays, most Firefall news isn't good news. But alas, as we...more
