Want some original damn games for your 3DS eShop? Well, WayForward can always be relied upon to deliver the goods! The team that ostensibly made DSiWare worth a crap is making Mighty Switch Force, and it sounds hot!
It's an action title with puzzle elements, starring the "feisty" law enforcer Patricia Wagon. The gameplay takes several cues from Metroid as Wagon fights Space Hooligans while completing puzzles that utilize the 3DS' third-dimension gimmickry. Although there are gimmick and block puzzles, most of the focus will be on action.
The guys making the game are all Contra 4 veterans, so it's in good hands. All told, WayForward has excelled at putting quality digital games on Nintendo's portables, so there's little doubt that this game will kick arse.
