3-D WorldRunner should be on store shelves near you very soon. It’s the latest game from one of Nintendo’s newest partners, Acclaim. It was actually developed by a Japanese company named Square, but Acclaim bought the rights to release it in the U.S.
If you enjoy Sega’s Space Harrier, you’ll be right at home with 3-D WorldRunner. You can play the game normally or don the special red and blue 3-D glasses to get extra trippy. Ed Semrad, who reviewed the game for the Milwaukee Journal, didn’t care for this gimmick and preferred to play without the weird color scheme. We can’t blame him! He ended up giving the game a score of 9 out of 10. Pretty solid! We should have a review in the coming weeks as well.
Also of note is that Ed mentions that Kid Icarus and Metroid are now available at Kohl’s Department Stores. It’s nice to see more retailers carrying Nintendo games! We’ve been busy exploring all of the screens in Metroid, and we should have a full review up later this month. Watch for it!
