It’s about time we got some screenshots from a US-developed GBA game! Iridion 3-D from Majesco is the company’s first GBA game, and Majesco says it’ll be ready for the US launch of the system. It’s under development by Majesco’s in-house team Pipe Dream Interactive, and as you can see from the screenshots, the game will feature some intense 3D action. According to Dan Kitchen, the vice president of handheld development for Majesco, “By pushing the graphics hardware of the Game Boy Advance to its technical limits, Iridion 3-D provides a truly realistic 3D gaming experience. Players will be amazed that such smooth environments and intense gameplay can now be achieved on a portable system.”
While we haven’t seen the game in action, the feature set sounds impressive. It promises seven big levels through which players will fight things like mega-robots, starfighters and bio-mechanical worms — all in 3D, of course.
