Bugs vs. Tanks now available on Nintendo eShop

Level-5 (Professor Layton) have announced that action shooter Bugs vs. Tanks, previously only available in Japan, has now been released in the West on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

Created by Keiji Inafune (Mega Man, Onimusha, Dead Rising) and set during WWII, gamers battle against insects in either single-player or co-op multiplayer for up to four friends.

President and CEO of Level-5 Akihiro Hino said, “Keiji Inafune has gained immense global fame as a result of building a reputation as not only a great game innovator but also a master of delivering compelling, unique and exciting entertainment experiences. BUGS vs. TANKS! continues this legacy with an extraordinary premise, tense gameplay, fun player customization, and other features that will keep players squashing bugs for hours on end.”

Creator Keiji Inafune said, “Akihiro Hino and I share the desire to deliver spectacular surprises to gamers. I have always wanted to work with him as I respect him as a creator, and I feel that we positively influence one another. This desire came to fruition with my involvement in the Guild02 project in the form of Bugs vs. Tanks and I’m glad to have been able to develop a game that Hino-san ended up being very satisfied with. We’re very pleased that the title has been well-received by fans in Japan, but that being said, the game was created with players around the world in mind. I feel that the game is exceptional and enjoyable, and I hope everyone will feel the same.”

A bonus gold tank will be also given to gamers who have save data from Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter or Crimson Shroud.

Now available on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS for £7.19
