Fossil Fighters RPG Hits Nintendo DS

Fossil Fighters RPG Hits Nintendo DS on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Dinosaurs may be long gone from the earth, but for owners of the Nintendo DS and DSi a new breed of prehistoric excitement is just now coming to life.

With the release of Fossil Fighters, Nintendo is delivering a dino-sized gaming experience that fans of any age or background can pick up and enjoy. Fossil Fighters invites players to enter a world in which fearsome creatures are hidden as fossils for players to collect, using the unique touch-screen controls of Nintendo DS. Players can clean, collect and battle their discoveries. The game features more than 100 dinosaur-like creatures called Vivosaurs, each of which can be revived and deployed in strategic turn-based battles. With fun tactical elements, vast environments to explore and a light-hearted storyline and characters, Fossil Fighters allows players to control and customise a team of Vivosaurs as they battle their way through the mysterious Vivosaur Island. Players can also connect over local wireless with friends to battle customized teams of Vivosaurs or trade their fossils.

"Dinosaurs are a source of endless fascination for the young and the young at heart. Combining customization and social play, Fossil Fighters brings together the best elements of hand-held gaming for players of all ages."
- Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Using the Nintendo DS stylus and touch screen, players can chip and drill away at each fossil they find. They can even blow into the Nintendo DS microphone to clear away dust. Once a fossil head is cleaned, the Vivosaur can be revived and used in battle. Other fossilized body parts can also be found and cleaned to imbue each Vivosaur with special powers. Players can create custom teams of three Vivosaurs, strategically selecting the best trio for each encounter.

A European release has yet to be confirmed, but is hoped for later this year...

Sounds pretty cool. Bit like Spectrobes...I couldn't really get into Spectrobes though. Hopefully this'll be a bit better. Smilie

I..I can't watch porn. My Mommy finds out

I'm surprised they didn't just call it dinomon (like digimon, or that game that Nintendo made that was something-mon).

Now on twitter, predicting celebrity death headlines! @thedaytheydie

Nothing can beat the pokemons.
