Someone Remade A PlayStation 2 Shooter For The Nintendo 3DS

D3 Publisher’s latest download title, @Simple DL series: @Simple DL Vol. 22 The Infantryman: Dogs of the Battlefield is a port of another of their older games, number 102 from the PlayStation 2 era of @Simple 2000 series, for the Nintendo 3DS.


The above trailer is from the original PlayStation 2 version, and as you can see from the updated 3DS screenshots below it’s looking to be roughly the same, but enhanced with better features such as a cleaned up minimap, health bars and the like on the portable. There’s minor touches that make things more interesting, such as weight restrictions on weapons you can take on missions. One thing we’re not quite sure of will be how the game controls.




@Simple DL Vol. 22: The Infantryman: Dogs of the Battlefield will go on sale on the 6th of November on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan.

    You know a game doesn’t have much sales expectations when it’s eShop exclusive even in Japan.

    Would be neat if they remade dimentia (or was it dimentium?) that horror shooter game with even better graphics (the original was surprisingly good looking for the platform).

    • Sachiko Shinozaki

      They remade Dimentium 2 to the PC. its a HD remade Port of the second DS game in the Dimentium series.

    I actually quite enjoy some games in D3’s Simple series. We all know Oneechanbara and Defence Force, but there were some other good ones too. I mean you couldn’t give them any points for presentation/polish, but their fun factor couldn’t be denied.

    I’m quite fond of Project Minerva, Maze Action and Space Invaders: Invasion Day, just to name a few of the PS2 ones.

    If D3 is gonna start bringing ps2 ports to the 3ds can they at least give me a Zombies vs. Ambulance port?

    I wouldn’t mind english localizations of the Simple series for the 3DS.
