Nintendo 3DS

The Rolling Western Combines Sonic the Hedgehog And…Tower Defense?



Big titles like Mario Kart 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising weren’t the only 3DS games Nintendo showed at E3; they also had upcoming Nintendo 3DS eShop games like The Rolling Western, which puts in you in the boots of a scarf-sporting cowboy armadillo.


Judging by the trailer, The Rolling Western plays somewhat like Sonic the Hedgehog with that spin-dash…but the trailer also mentions something about defending a tower. Nintendo haven’t provided a release date for The Rolling Western yet.
