Xevious for Nintendo 3DS


Check out the latest content available now on Nintendo eShop and Nintendo DSi Shop

Get ready to go deep behind enemy lines in XEVIOUS as this intense Nintendo Entertainment System classic gets revamped in 3D for Nintendo 3DS.

In the game, players are placed in the cockpit of a state-of-the-art Solvalou strike fighter aircraft on a daring mission to infiltrate hostile airspace. You are humanity’s last hope of eradicating the sinister XEVIOUS collective – shoot down wave after wave of enemy fighters, drop your deadly payload of guided bombs and take out the colossal flying fortress to bring the XEVIOUS war machine to its knees.

Considered one of the forefathers of the modern overhead vertical shooters, Xevious will dazzle you with its new 3D features.

Check out the latest offerings below which are also available for download this week via the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo DSi Shop and Wii Shop Channel.
