The DS lives! Aliens: Infestation is a new game for Nintendo’s last generation portable



Although Nintendo has a new portable with fancy stereoscopic 3D, there are still developers who want a chunk of the 147 million DS pie. This September, WayForward Technologies will release a new game based on the Aliens franchise for Nintendo’s aging portable giving the Nintendo DS a breath of fresh air. 

Aliens: Infestation is a side-scrolling action title being published by Sega, and will feature a large selection of weapons and tools from the Aliens series. Sega is saying that there will be an upgrade and collectible system, making the the title sound like it will have a Metroid-vania feel to it.

Given the pedigree of WayForward, Aliens: Infestation is a title that deserves a look when it finally releases this fall. Head past the break to check out a few more screens of the game.

  1. Great! Now I need to re-buy a DS. I wish this had been a Wii farewell, since I have been trying to get them to put this on the Wii forever. I even had some company reps tell me they would consider it if enough people expressed their interest.

  2. Can’t wait for this one!!

  3. I’m definitely interested.

  4. want

  5. The DS was dead? lol. Looks nice. :O

  6. My DSLite will never die! Being able to play GBA plus DS games means I will likely never run out of quality titles. I can’t wait for GameStop (et al) to start discounting DS games as there are many I still need to pick up.

  7. Well.

    It’s by WayForward, so I’m looking forward to it. Just hope they don’t make it a reskinned Contra 4…

  8. looks very interesting. and if it plays like metroid, I’m in…

  9. More 2D fun from Way Forward!

  10. I played this game at the San Diego Comic-Con and it was a completely unfinished mess. There were no aliens to fight at all, just empty rooms to walk through. All character dialogue was just an identical error message… something like “String data not found”. I can’t even imagine why they would let people demo it in a state like that!

  11. lol super monkey ball 3d is waaaay to better than this game,except i cant delete save data 🙁

  12. i liked monsters v.s. aliens better

  13. Want. Me 2.
