The Rolling Western Combines Sonic the Hedgehog And…Tower Defense?

By Ishaan . June 10, 2011 . 9:29am


Big titles like Mario Kart 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising weren’t the only 3DS games Nintendo showed at E3; they also had upcoming Nintendo 3DS eShop games like The Rolling Western, which puts in you in the boots of a scarf-sporting cowboy armadillo.


Judging by the trailer, The Rolling Western plays somewhat like Sonic the Hedgehog with that spin-dash…but the trailer also mentions something about defending a tower. Nintendo haven’t provided a release date for The Rolling Western yet.

  • Awesome. The title is a bit of a put-off, but the design and gameplay looks fun, like a 16bit era game in a polygonal world.

  • They need to add that character to the next smash game. The characters looks awesome and its been a long while that I know of that Nintendo made a new character.

    Sonic the Hedgehog? Looks more like GORON RACING to me.

    He even sounds like Link when he goes “EYAA!” and “HYYAAA!”

    Overall, it looks like it actually has a possibility of being fun. Flesh it out with a western RPG experience… and maybe change the name. >_<

    • Yeah. That would have been a better comparison since I saw five seconds of that and thought to myself,”Holy crap! They made a game about the Gorons!!”

    Wow. That game does look incredibly fun. I suppose I have another reason to get a 3DS. I also thought maybe this was by Sega when I saw that the character is a yellow armadillo (and Sonic was mentioned).
