Slow Down Time When Things Get Hectic In This Nintendo 3DS Shoot-em-up

By Ishaan . July 23, 2013 . 12:50pm

Another shoot-em-up is headed to the Nintendo 3DS as a download title in North America. Following in the steps of G.Rev’s Kokuga comes G-Style’s Chain Blaster. Below is a Japanese trailer for the game:



In Chain Blaster, your ship can fire Chain Blasts, which can take out an entire formation of enemy ships. The more enemies you take out in the blast, the higher your score. Regular shots are fired with A. Taking enemies out fills up a gauge, which lets you perform Chain Blasts to destroy enemy formations.


Additionally, when things get hectic, you can also use Overdrive to go into slow motion. This uses up your gauge, too. You can read more about how the game plays here.


There are two ships that you can play as—the Sagittarius and Orion. The Sagittarius can use all the features mentioned above, while Orion is a mysterious ship meant for more advanced players.


Chain Blaster is never-ending, so your goal is to get the highest possible score. Scores are uploaded to worldwide leaderboards, so you can compare your score with other players. The game will be available via the Nintendo eShop on July 25th for $6.99.

    Do we have a release date for Europe/Australia as of now?
    This shoot’em up looks interesting, and they are not enough of them on the 3DS/DS. (and even less if you remove the Japan-exclusive DsiWares…)

    I hope the intent of the Fire Emblem / Shin Megami Tensei deal wasn’t to get me to spend my eShop credit on DLC for those titles- because between Kokuga and this, it looks like the majority of that credit is going to G.Rev

    I love this game, I definitely recommend it to anybody. It does get pretty hectic.

    Watch it not come to Canada just like Kokuga. :(
