The lights are on
It's not a quite a trailer, and there's no way to know if it is actually gameplay, but if it is, IronFall for the 3DS is an impressive piece of tech.
The game takes some very obvious cues from Gears of War, but on a much smaller screen. The video showcases a third-person shooter with bulky armored soldiers, but you might not know it was a 3DS game without the handheld's frame embedded in the video.
The video promises 60 fps, impressive lighting, physics, and particle effects, detailed character models, and large buildings falling apart. We'll have to wait and see if the game lives up to the impressive tech shown in the video.
Developer VD-Dev has created some technically impressive and surprising game's on Nintendo's handhelds in the past, like a fully 3D versions of Stuntman and Driver 3 on the Game Boy Advance.
IronFall should be available spring 2014 on the 3DS.

Even if the game isn't a hit i'm sure they can license out the engine and make a killing if it's easy to use.
That was amazing! I'm definitely getting it.
Soooo this is Gears of War on the 3DS?
Not bad, but the title imo screams boarderline copyright infringement. Very similar to that ONE game....
Looks like Gears of War, but if it can live up to the awesome of GoW 3 then I totally want to play it.
100% assembly language? Holy crap. Props to them.
Frankly, I'm more impressed by those old 3D games on GBA. I had no idea that system was even capable of 3D graphics. I have my eye on this game now. If the gameplay lives up to the tech, it should be worth the buy.
looks like Gears of War
It looked pretty good, especially if that was actual game play and not some polished vid. Not going to get the handheld or the game, but it looks like it could be GofW fun!
I hope you can shift the camera to peer over the other shoulder when needed. It's little misses like those that can ruin a game.
that looks AMAZING...if they knock out an amazing game, they need to license this as an engine and start handing it out like Halloween candy. This console, as amazing and classic as it already is, has obviously just begun.
Looks crazy good for a 3DS
Impressive. I hope the game turns out good. Now if they'd make a survival horror with that engine or something like Shadowgate 64, that'd be cool
