Back on the PsOne, Banpresto made a series of base defending games before tower defense was all the rage. Players had to manage an economy and build giant robots to protect their underground base in Azito. Hamster picked the series up and plan to revive it on Nintendo 3DS with Azito 3D.
This upcoming 3DS game sticks to a similar formula, but adds touchscreen controls for easier secret base building. You can place robot labs and monster labs to create giant defenders and huge hangars to store them until a battle begins. Other rooms in Azito 3D, like labs, bring in funds for players to use to expand their underground lair. You also have to manage the amount of energy by building the right number of power reactors.
The goal of the game is to keep expanding and successfully protect your secret base from invaders. Azito’s unique blend of kaiju brawls and base planning heads to the Nintendo 3DS this summer.
