Retro Steampunk Shoot ’em Up Heading To 3DS


Who knew the Nintendo 3DS would be a home for obscure retro shoot ’em ups? Nintendo got Summer Carnival ’92 RECCA and the Japan-only game will be released in North America too. Famitsu reports Steel Empire, a steampunk style shoot ’em up for the Genesis, will be re-released as a 3DS download.



It’s unclear if Steel Empire is a straight port of the Genesis version or based on the Game Boy Advance re-release from Elminage developer Starfish. Steel Empire will be released as a downloadable 3DS game.
