D3 Publisher Fire Off First Screens Of Dream Trigger 3D

By Ishaan . February 10, 2011 . 6:36pm

D3 Publisher announced their first Nintendo 3DS game, Dream Trigger 3D, in December. It’s taken a couple months, but we finally know what the 3D arcade shooter looks like. Sort of. D3 released three screenshots of the game today.


Dream Trigger 3D’s focus appears to be on colour and sound. D3 say that you use a sonar in the game to detect sound, expose colourful enemies and blast them. When you do, they explode into colourful 3D patterns. We assume that’s what we’re seeing in the above screenshot.


The game is developed by Art Co., and will come with 50 stages. D3 Publisher haven’t announced a release date for Dream Trigger 3D yet.

    haha, did the Coors Light Silver Bullet Express drive out of that screenshot for anyone else, rar, I almost died laughing >ww<

    Seriously though looks neat, although a little bland, but the potential of Rez or Child of Eden-esque title on 3DS is a notion I like.

  • Definitely keeping my eyes on this one. Looking forward to hearing more information on this game’s development.

    *Rage* First time I laid eyes on this blasted title, I thought it was a Chrono Trigger sequel. Damn. A name so apt for a Chrono sequel yet it would probably be marred by poor direction anyhow.

    Ahh. Me rambling on.

      Dream Trigger = Chrono Trigger + Inception?

      Dammit, now I’m hungry for another Chrono game too :(

      • Do you really wanna play an RPG where a dream is a dream that just happens to be a dream?

          THROUGH TIME.

          • You do realize it would take a couple of years to get the first draft of the narrative done for this game. And how are we going to get the money for Christopher Nolan to help with this project?

      lol Dream Trigger? It doesn’t have Chrono in the title anywhere why think that? Plus D3 publish a Chrono game? Besides everyone knows the next Chrono game is Chrono Break (or Chrono Brake 2 different copyrights and all :P). lol My mean streak and bad jokes aside, I somehow thought something similar too :( If only SE would just give us Chrono Break (and not ruin it). XD

  • I thought this was a new Every Extend Extra game at first :/

  • Hmm….I think I like. Sounds like a potential purchase for me.

  • color and sound? reminded me of bit trip series

  • Who needs drugs when you have trippy games like these?

    Much as I like Rez and similar games, I think playing them in 3D would be a good way to make me hungry again after 15 minutes :P
