Calling all Horseshoe Crab enthusiasts! It’s time to dust off your Nintendo 3DS.
The Nintendo 3DS is getting a new game next week, some 10 years and 263 days since the console launched in Japan.
Horseshoe Crab Rescue! gives limulidae fans the chance to scour a beach for stranded crabs, flipping them over and saving their lives.
Here’s how developer Kevin Foley pitches the game:
“It’s breeding time for the horseshoe crabs, which means they will come to the beach to lay and fertilize eggs. Horseshoe crabs have been around for hundreds of millions of years, but they have one weakness – if they get flipped on their back on the beach, they get stuck! Luckily, humans can help them out. In Horseshoe Crab Rescue!, you will help out these amazing creatures by flipping horseshoe crabs that have gotten stranded on their backs. Hurry around the beach and try to rescue as many horseshoe crabs as you can before time runs out!”
“Horseshoe Crab Rescue! is a casual game with light educational elements. Play through 15 stages of increasing difficulty while trying to beat your top scores, and learn a few facts along the way. Be sure to check out the included manual (Home > Manual while the game is running) for more educational info on horseshoe crabs!”
Although it’s nice to see the Nintendo 3DS is still receiving new games, we’ll file this one under odd.
Oh, one last note. Horseshoe Crab Rescue! is only compatible with New Nintendo 3DS systems. It will be released on the 3DS eShop on November 16, 2021.
