IronFall Invasion Breaches The Nintendo eShop Again

This article is over 8 years old and may contain outdated information

On February 26, VD dev’s IronFall Invasion was released on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS. The free-to-try, third person shooter either allowed one person to go through the Campaign or up to six players to face off in arenas in Multiplayer. However, it was delisted in August, due to vulnerabilities that would have allowed Nintendo 3DS owners to run exploits. Now, IronFall Invasion has returned to the handheld.

VD dev made the announcement on Twitter earlier today. A quick search on the Nintendo eShop will bring up the listing and allow new and old users to download the game. All backdoors have been closed, meaning the game is completely secure and can’t be used for homebrew purposes.


IronFall Invasion allows people to sample the Campaign and Multiplayer. However, each mode costs $10, should someone want access to all 11 levels and all 6 arenas.
