Fossil Fighters: Frontier Coming To North America On 3DS

By Ishaan . June 11, 2014 . 4:16pm


Nintendo’s new Fossil Fighters game (titled Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear in Japan) is coming to North America as Fossil Fighters: Frontier. It will be released for the Nintendo 3DS.


Fossil Fighters is a game where you excavate Vivosaur fossils and use them to bring dinosaur-like creatures to life. You can then use these creatures to do battle in a tournament. Each Vivosaur has four parts—head, body, arms and legs—and normally, you only need the head fossil to bring one to life.


If you excavate the fossils for all four body parts, however, you get access to more skills for your Vivosaur. In Fossil Fighters: Frontier, you can drive vehicles around the world, and these have built-in radars that you use to track fossils down.


Fossil Fighters: Frontier does not have a release date yet.

    So, I guess this was the special 3DS game, huh …
    Eh, was hoping for Youkai Watch, but this’ll do.

    • No, this isn’t the 3DS game reveal. That isn’t for another hour and a half.

      • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

        Oh, goody!
        I need to learn time zones, I guess.

        You know something we don’t, Ishaan?
        Looks likes we’ll get more news tomorrow.

  • You can now play as the dinosaur from Siliconera’s header.

  • Towel

    Love me some dinosaurs but that song is fucking dreadful.

  • Tsuibana

    The next generation of gaming is upon us, my brethren; Jurassic Park, the Musical, the Anime, the Game. Coming to all major consoles and smart-phones in the near future, this marks a new period in gaming history. Let us bask in it’s beautiful glory. We are not worthy.

  • I hope the song doesn’t play in the game.

  • I loved Dinosaurs when I was a child so this series had always been a favorite of mine, great to see it on 3DS (finally!).

  • DesmaX

    oh my god that song.

    who though that was a good idea

    • Jumbokitty724

      This has to be the worst song ever.

    • Namuro

      I shouldn’t have watched the video just to satisfy my curiosity…

    • TerrenceEncore Jones

      That song sounds like it should be in a stage production. I wonder what the Japanese song sounds like.

      • E4439qv5

        The rhyming structure is a little less forced.

    • Aristides

      And we’re back in the early 90s cartoon era XD

  • SupaPhly

    It’s one of those songs that will tear into your skull until you like it

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Like Friday.

      Except, I actually kind of liked Friday when it came out.

  • Reki Honoo


  • Spider-Man

    Nintendo going after my wallet hard…

  • Cool I have the original and Champions on DS and I will get this as well.

  • mitOmega

    the song is brilliant!

    Adventures right around the bennnndd ♪

    • E4439qv5

      And the world’s got wonders to spare~!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That classic Friday cartoon and anime dub song lol.^_^……………T_T

  • Göran Isacson

    Down with the haters, the more kid games with cheesy intro-themes the BETTER! More. MORE I SAY. Only thing it needs is more enthusiasm, like so:

  • Dat Song… Is so bad and cheesy. :P

  • Serge

    Is like a Reading Rainbow’s song… With freaking dinosaurs.

  • Learii

    nice to have another jrpg on 3DS, btw why Nintendo don’t show any 3DS games this year

  • NeptuniasBeard

    That’s a lot of Fs… Crocker would be proud

  • Zero_Destiny

    Oh my God, it’s like an 80’s sitcom intro. XD I love it, that’s just way too funny.

  • Reki Honoo

    So is this coming out this year? I’m just curious.

    • E4439qv5

      No set release date yet. Amazon says December 31st, 2015, but I’m pretty sure that’s worst-case scenario.

  • Ying

    That song…Why?
    Right so the game. It looks like it could be fun if you are into these kinds of games. I’m not personally though

  • Azul

    The cheesy song sounds like there would be a cartoon series coming out as well.

  • So basically this is spectrobes meets pokemon? Speaking of which we could really use another spectrobes game we really could

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. I have been waiting for this game and it is almost here!! I cannot wait to play this. I wonder if having vehicles means that there will be more land to explore.

  • Somebodyissilent

    So Pokemon with dinosaurs?

  • Hexodious

    The game will also coming to Europe later in 2015.

  • rubin

    I start sounding like a broken record, but EU release pretty please?

  • wahyudil

    I hate that song …
